Leonard Alt: Jesus did not call Peter a pebble. No Bible translation says this; your man-made tradition says it. You are rock and upon this rock I will build my Church. Indeed your church may be built on a pebble; however, the Church Jesus founded is built on a rock. Jesus called Peter (Cephas or Kepha) which is Aramaic and simply means rock.
Ted Perantinides: IT is weird how rc's make the leap from JESUS to the RCC church.you all must remrnber our guy (ST. ANDREW)WAS THE "FIRST CALLED".ASK YOURSELVES WHY?
Leonard Alt: Peter was the first and only one to be called ROCK (Cephas) by Jesus. God is called ROCK many places in the Bible and we have this same God calling Peter, ROCK. It is weird how Evangelicals run away from this simple Biblical fact that points to the unique leadership of Peter.
Andrew Miller: Leonard Alt if Peter is the rock then who are these?
Psa 18:31 For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?
Psa 18:46 The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted.
Psa 28:1 To You I will cry, O LORD my Rock: Do not be silent to me, Lest, if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit....
Psa 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle--
Isa 44:8 Do not fear, nor be afraid; have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.' "
Mat 7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
1Co 10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.
Rom 9:33 As it is written: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."
