The Demand for a Sign
(Mark 8:11–13; Luke 12:54–56)
1 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came and tested Jesus by asking Him to show them a sign from heaven.
2 But He replied,
The Leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees
(Mark 8:14–21;Luke 12:1–3)
7 They discussed this among themselves and concluded, “It is because we did not bring any bread.”
8 Aware of their conversation, Jesus said,
12 Then they understood that He was not telling them to beware of the leaven used in bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

17 Jesus replied,
20 Then He admonished the disciples not to tell anyone that He was the Christ.
Christ’s Passion Foretold
(Mark 8:31–33;Luke 9:21–22)

22 Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. “Far be it from You, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to You!”

Take Up Your Cross
(Mark 8:34–38;Luke 9:23–27)
24 Then Jesus told His disciples,
28 Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
