Debate: Is Peter the “Rock” in Matthew 16:18? (Akin V. Nemes)

If you’re like me, you’ve taken for granted that Jesus called Peter the rock that he’ll build his church. Well, that’s not what everybody thinks. This is a calm, collected discussion by two scholars on the issue. Enjoy! Capturing Christianity: Matt 16:18 is the famous passage that says: “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.” The question that will be discussed in this dialogue is who the rock is referring to. Does it refer to Peter? To Jesus? To someone/something else? Dr. Nemes’ YouTube channel: Jimmy Akin’s channel: This video’s sponsor:
