When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked
his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"
They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah;
and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?"
Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the
Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this
was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build
my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will
give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you
bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose
on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matt 16:13-19
Saint Peter's House, Capernaum, Israel
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a
wise man who built his house on the rock.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house;
yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a
foolish man who built his house on sand.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house,
and it fell with a great crash."
This is a particular great teaching in as much as it ties in with so many different scriptures.
Here Jesus associates the 'one who listens and does' what He has said as a wise man.
Wise men build their houses on a solid foundation, such as stone or rock, to give it
stoutness to withstand the elements coming against it. He then goes on to describe the
foolish one, as the one that hears the same message as the wise, but disregards it in as
much as NOT doing what said. The same circumstances, situations, and trials come against
it as the wise man's house; only difference is without the stoutness of a sure foundation the
house falls. This also goes hand in hand explaining James 1:22-25, " Do not merely listen to
the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but
does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at
himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks
intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what
he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does."
When Peter made the glorious declaration, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.",
Jesus ackowledged His Father's revelation to Peter, and it is on that foundation, the rock of
that revelation, not the Peter 'the rock' that Peter's House is built.
