Revisiting Matthew 16:13-18

My interest in posting this came when I heard some people discussing this matter over the radio. I know it is one of the most debated topic elsewhere and I want to say that I am but a plain bible reader who joins discussion about religion from time to time.


Mat16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

Mat16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Mat16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Mat16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Mat16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Mat16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.


Jesus asked what do the people and His disciples were saying about Him, which Peter answered correctly that He is the Christ, the son of the living God. And Jesus said that upon the one whom the people were saying as Jeremias, Elias,..or upon whom Peter said as the Christ, the son of the living God, His church will be built.
