Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered him, flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Matthew 16:16-18 (ESV)
On this rock – not on Peter (a stone or boulder) but upon the massive rock-solid foundation of his deity – on the divinely revealed truth that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, Christ would build his glorious, unassailable, impregnable church, the Church which is His Body.
