You have a very good theory, but the problem is that you are disagreeing with Jesus Himself and ALL of the Protestant scholars. If you can gett hem to change their minds bully for you. But please don't agrue with me when it is your own people telling YOU that YOU are WRONG.
If Jesus has said, *and on YOU, PETER, will I build my church* then I would have nothing to argue against, but He didn’t.
As far as other *Protestant scholars* (and not ALL of them by any means), I don’t give a rip about who says what and what kind of credentials they have or how many letters before or after their name. If it doesn’t line up with a clear reading of Scripture or if it contradicts other Scripture, they’re wrong, plain and simple.
