  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 16:13-19)
Jesus played on Peter's name which be the similar word for "rock" in both Aramaic and Greek. To call somebody a "rock" is one of the most of compliments. The ancient rabbis had a proverb that when God saw Abraham, he exclaimed: "I have exposed a rock to found the world upon." Through Abraham God recognized a nation for himself. Through faith Peter grasped who Jesus really was. He was the first apostle to identify by Jesus as the Anointed One and the only loved one the Son of God. How solid is our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? At an appropriate time Jesus tested his disciples by a crucial question: Who do men say that I am and who do you say that I am? Jesus was extensively recognized in Israel as a powerful man of God, still being compared with the greatest of the prophets, John the Baptist, Elijah, and Jeremiah. Peter, all the time quick to respond, cried out that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God. No mortal being could have exposed this to Peter; but only God. Jesus then conferred on Peter authority to rule the church that Jesus would build, a church that no powers might overcome.
