WHO DO YOU SAY I AM
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.
