In Matthew 16, after another testing from the Pharisees and Sadducees, Jesus asks His disciples the question all must answer: “Whom do people say the Son of Man is?” Peter gives his classic confession of Jesus as the Messiah and then for the first time, Jesus speaks of His impending death... Who is Jesus to me and why is His death important to me? Matthew 16:1-4; 12:38-42. How does Jesus answer the request for “a sign” and why is this question absurd? Do I test God by asking for signs?
