Sunday Scripture

Delivery of the Keys, Percegino, c. 1481-1482,
Sistine Chapel, Vatican City, Rome. [PD-US]

Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi and
he asked his disciples,"Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah,still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said in reply,"You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Jesus said to him in reply,"Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter,and upon this rock I will build my church,and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Then he strictly ordered his disciplesto tell no one that he was the Christ.
Matthew 16:13-20

  1. Hi! This is not the first time that your Scripture has been one of our readings for thie Sunday! Anybody Lutheran? My husband preached on this today. Did you know that THE GATES OF HELL was a place that was like an underground cistern. People used to worship there to pagan gods of the underworld! Isn't it great the Jesus was right there in Ceserea Phillipi, and said that the gates of hell will not prevail! Those old pagan idols have nothing on OUR GOD!
