In Matthew 16:18, Jesus Christ informed his apostles that he
would build his church upon "this rock." There has been some
controversy through the ages regarding what Christ must have
intended by that statement. The Papists, in order to bolster their

meaning of the passage. Although it is not the intention of the
authors to spend a considerable amount of space defending the
Protestant view, given our title we should devote at least some
introductory space to the subject.
