Christ said, “18And 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.” Matt. 16:18
Was Christ saying He would build His church on ‘Peter’ as some suppose? “Peter’ derives from ‘petros’ – a piece of rock. The Greek for ‘rock’ as in ‘upon this ROCK’ derives from ‘petra’ – ‘a mass of rock’. Much larger.
Who is the ROCK upon which Christ would build His church? Jesus Christ.
