Peter gets it right in today’s Gospel and Jesus calls him “blessed”. That is, he is a person who brings a great gift and who brings that gift to others. Already in the community that Matthew is writing for, the community of Jesus followers are gathering as “church”. Peter is seen as Jesus successor and future leader for that community.

Jesus is a very different Messiah to the one the Jews expected. It is understandable that he would order the disciples to keep quiet. The people of his time wanted a leader who would lead them in a military revolt against the romans, who would be a great king. Jesus mission involves a very different focus, reaching out to the outcast, those on the margins, a radical love. His actions will speak for who he is.

It is for each of us to make up our own minds as to who Jesus is. Peter is quite clear and sincere in his declaration, however, as we will see later, Peter did not understand fully what the journey of Jesus would entail. Peter commits himself but it is a reminder that we must always leave room for growth in the understanding of our commitments.
