1) Read Matthew 16:13-20
Peter’s declaration about Jesus
13Now when Jesus came to the area of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Human OneOr Son of Man is?"
14They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the other prophets."
15He said, "And what about you? Who do you say that I am?"
16Simon Peter said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
17Then Jesus replied, "Happy are you, Simon son of Jonah, because no human has shown this to you. Rather my Father who is in heaven has shown you. 18 I tell you that you are Peter.Peter means rock.And I’ll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won’t be able to stand against it. 19 I’ll give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Anything you fasten on earth will be fastened in heaven. Anything you loosen on earth will be loosened in heaven." 20Then he ordered the disciples not to tell anybody that he was the Christ.
