People's Bible Notes for Matthew 16:16

Mt 16:16 And Simon Peter answered. With the impetuosity and impulsiveness that were ever manifested in him, Peter replied at once and expressed the faith of all the apostolic band. Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. This confession not only sees in Jesus the promised Messiah, but in the Messiah recognizes the divine nature. The confession of Peter is the one Christian confession of the New Testament and of the apostolic age, and the very foundation of the church, into which all saints are built as living stones of the temple.

 

Comments for Matthew 16:16

Pastor C. Elebee's comment on 2014-04-19 05:01:11:

Many church goers do not embrace the fact that we have authority to proclaim that the power we possess comes from the risen Savior Jesus the Christ. We are to construct our daily sojourn on fact and not just idol words, but words that have accent on eternity. Government would have us to think that separation of church and state is to divide, and show or reveal that our authority or power to build is in the hands of those that fail to acknowledge Jesus as the first source to seek above all.

 

Phil's comment on 2011-06-16 04:12:55:

Matthew 16:16 is a revelation of 'Jesus as the Christ'. This revealed Jesus as the highest authority both in Heaven and on Earth;after this revelation, Jesus pronounced the believers' authority; the foundation upon which we stand as believers and upon which the Church is built.Indeed, 'Jesus is the Christ', the Lord of all.
