Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

This is a simplified version of the Bible story found in Mark 8:27-30, written for children to understand. For the original version, please refer to the Bible passage.

Jesus and His disciples were on a journey to Caesarea Philippi. Along the way, Jesus asked them, “What do people say about Me?”

They told Him that some people thought He was John the Baptist, while others believed He was Elijah, and some thought He was one of the prophets.

Then Jesus asked His friends, “But what about you? Who do you think I am?”

Peter spoke up and said, “You are the Christ!”

Then Jesus strictly told them not to tell anyone about Him.
