And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” And he strictly charged them to tell no one about him.
The realisation that Yeshu must be the longed-for Messiah Christ came forcefully to Peter like new sight. “Now I see it; you are God’s Mashiga!”
And equally forcefully Yeshu now tells them to keep this insight to themselves.
