Matthew 16:18 is one of the most controversial and debated scriptures in the Bible. Who is This Rock?
Thou art PeterPetros (Greek)A small stone or pebble
Upon this RockPetras (Greek) A massive rock
I will build My Church A declaration from the Lord for eternity
There are 3 interpretations for this passage: This Rock Peter’s confession that Jesus is Lord This Rock The Person of Peter This Rock The Lord Jesus Christ
The Church of The Lord Jesus Christ cannot be built upon the individual confession of a man. For the confessions of men are only as strong as it’s confessor.
Jesus Christ is THIS ROCK! The only foundation strong enough to sustain His Church for eternity.
