The Gates of Hell

Peter the 'rock': What's in a name?

TEXT: MATTHEW 16:18

In the passage above, we see three things are going on. We see Jesus talking about the church, Simon's name is changed to "Peter" and Jesus talks about the effect that the church will have on something called the "gates of hell".

So, yes, this is a three-parter, so it will be easier to read.

We have already taken care of the "gates of hell" part HERE (please click). And we'll take care of the charge of the church later.

Jesus calls His disciples

TEXT: Mark 1:14-19

Jesus begins his ministry, following a water baptism by John the Baptist, a spiritual baptism by the Holy Spirit and 40 days of temptations in the wilderness.

John the Baptist, meanwhile, is cast into prison, and as his ministry becomes lesser, Jesus' ministry becomes greater.
