This text contains wonderful confession by Peter to Jesus. Concerning the ministry of Jesus, we estimate that this testimony of Peter to Jesus was approximately a year before His crucifixion. At this time also, the Jews were beginning to despise Christ because the kingdom He promised was not the one they desired; and earthly kingdom. They could not acknowledge that He was the Son of God. This is the context of Peter's confession. Peter gives a profound spiritual confession. We consider this confession as it applies to us. Whom do we say that Christ is? Do we have the same wonderful confession that Peter gave, that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God? This is a wonderful and blessed confession and we consider this confession.
