Matthew 16

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, g "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" 14 So they said, h "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or i one of the prophets." 15 He said to them, "But who do j you say that I am?" 16 Simon Peter answered and said, k "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17 Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon BarJonah, l for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but m My Father who is in heaven. 18 "And I also say to you that n you are Peter, and o on this rock I will build My church, and p the gates of Hades shall not 1 prevail against it. 19 q "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth 2 will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." 20 r Then He commanded His disciples that they should tell no one that He was Jesus the Christ.
