Bible: Matthew 16:13-18

Peter’s Confession

16:13 When 1  Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, 2  he asked his disciples, 3 Who do people say that the Son of Man is? 16:14 They answered, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, 4  and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 16:15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am? 16:16 Simon Peter answered, 5 You are the Christ, 6  the Son of the living God.” 16:17 And Jesus answered him, 7 You are blessed, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood 8  did not reveal this to you, but my Father in heaven! 16:18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades 9  will not overpower it.
