INTRODUCTION:

Who can ever forget the Biblical Account (in Matthews 16:19-31) where Jesus ask his disciples What were the people opinion of him?

As you may recall, he asked Who do men say that I, the Son of Man am? They replied, some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah or one of the prophets ... Then Jesus pressed them … and asked What do you think?

Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. … 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.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
