Confession of Peter
Matthew 16:13-19 (NRSV)

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked
his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they
said, "Some sayJohn the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others
Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you
say that I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son
of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon
son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my
Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will
build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will
give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on
earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be
loosed in heaven."
