Just received an email about The Bones of St. Peter,
Available July 15th, 2011 from Sophia Institute Press.
Should be a fascinating read.
“Upon this rock” takes a very literal meaning.
The Rock is Christ.
Yet another book I’ll have to get. :-)
Just finished reading: The Jewish Roots of the Eucharist.
While I disagree that the "rock" that Christ was talking about was Peter, I have to admit that it's actually stunning on just how literally this passage has came to pass. It's a perfect example of God's faithfulness to see that all of His word is fulfilled, even the parts we think of as allegorical.
God is worthy to be praised, for He is faithful.
