III. BY REVELATION THIS KNOWLEDGE COMES
17Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
VS 17 God wants to reveal
From the beginning: let there be a revelation of “Me”
“I’m going to build something with that”
Peter= PETROS = Small stone
Rock = PETRA = Massive stone, rock, cliff
Revelation of Christ = who He is and what He has done
He builds ON that revelation!
This revelation demands a choice!
