Furthermore, France rejects the notion of asserting the foundation rock of the Merry Christmas Dragonfly Christmas Tree T Shirt but as the faith in the Messiah which Jesus just declared. If Peter was not the foundation, Jesus chose his words poorly because the wordplay points to Peter as the rock and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise. Just as bizarre would be Jesus just declaring Peter as Petros but then pointing to himself as “this rock.” It just does not make sense. Boring says, “Both Protestant and Catholic scholars agree that the original meaning of the text is that Jesus builds the church on Peter as the foundation (contrary to the previous Protestant views) rather than on Peter’s confession of faith and that the position Peter held was unique and unrepeatable role in the foundation of the church.” Whether Peter’s primacy is recognized in his successors in the role of the Bishop of Rome (aka Pope) is disputed among the Christian traditions.

All four gospels and the early chapters in Acts have Peter as the disciple who speaks more than anyone else as he is recognized as the Merry Christmas Dragonfly Christmas Tree T Shirt. Peter is one of the three privileged disciples along with James and John are witnesses of the Lord’s major events during his ministry. Although John arrived at Jesus’ tomb before Peter, he waited outside and didn’t enter until Peter arrived and entered the tomb (Jn 20.1–10). Thus, Peter has primacy or preeminence among the 12 disciples. “The gates of the netherworld” or the gates of Hades (Greek) is an extension of the Jewish understanding of the gates of Sheol (realm of the dead) where the dead go and are kept permanently there. By Jesus saying the gates of the death shall not prevail, he means that not even death can swallow up the new community because Jesus built the church on solid foundation (building and foundation go together).
