Jesus asked them about himself (Mt 16:15-16:15)

“He said to them.

‘But who do you say

That I am?’”

 

λέγει αὐτοῖς Ὑμεῖς δὲ τίνα με λέγετε εἶναι;

 

This same question can be found in Mark, chapter 8:29, and Luke, chapter 9:20.  Jesus then asked his disciples (λέγει αὐτοῖς) who they thought or said that he was (Ὑμεῖς δὲ τίνα με λέγετε εἶναι).  Jesus thus put them to the test.  Was he the Son of Man or someone else?
