Matthew, chapter 16

11 "How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." 12 Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
The Apostles really weren't the quickest minds around ...
20 Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the
Christ.
Maybe doing less miracles would also be a good way to remain secret ...
22 Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to You." 23 But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
Peter worries for Jesus and gets called Satan therefore. Ok ...
28 "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."
Another empty promise. Or we've got some very old people running around somewhere.
