Discussion for Matthew 16

  • Terrell Rashar Reese
    I honestly think that this lesson was a good one to discuss at church. When Peter says that God has forbid Jesus rising in 3 days is false obviously . But what I am not understanding is when Jesus said "Get thee behind me, Satan. If you can tell us people who didn't understand that verse, that will mean a lot.
  • Stanjett
    And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. This is the only place in the bible the word Barjona is used. Which means son of Jona and dove. Many Simons in the bible but this Simon is Peter.

    You say, Peter was just the pebble in comparison. Who art thou that judges another man's servant? to his own master he stands or falls. Yea, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many.
  • Nicholas
    Jesus meant himself by 'rock....'. Peter was just the pebble in comparison.
  • Stephender
    The sign of Jonas, as spoken by Jesus, refers to false teachers, so Jesus sent Jonas to preach, for he was just. He refused, fearing the populace, He boarded a ship to escape, but couldn't, and was tossed overboard to save his shipmates. Today we have a religion which has warrantied an entirely corrupt product, and does not teach the true word, but corrupts itself with this alliance. Beware!!!!
  • Ron
    Jesus gave the Church several guarantees, one of which is in verse 18: the very gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church. In spite of the commentary of the day which asserts the Church is headed into oblivion,Jesus Christ has guaranteed the Church that she will not be defeated.Not now, not ever! Rejoice and be glad!
