Peter: A Biblical Portrait
In the 16th chapter of Matthew's Gospel,
Christ singled out
the Apostle Peter for the central position
of founding His
Church and gives to Peter the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven.
The best spokespersons for an
understanding of Matthew would be
members of the Apostolic Church,
those who heard the words of Christ
and writers of the New Testament who
recorded the words and deeds of
Christ and the early church.
