15 He said to them, “But who doyou say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah,for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, butMy Father who is in heaven.18 And I also say to you thatyou are Peter, andon this rock I will build My church, andthe gates of Hades shall not[a]prevail against it.19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth[b]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
19 Go[a]therefore andmake disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I amwith you always, even to the end of the age.”[b]Amen.
41 Then those who [a]gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ [b]doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
