The Complete Sayings of Jesus, by Arthur Hinds, [1927] A.D. 29. Age 32. Cesarea Philippi. Matthew 16, 13-28: Mark 8, 27-38; 9, 1: Luke 9, 18-27. * JESUS, and his disciples, came into the towns of Cesarea Philippi. And by the way he asked them, * They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or, that one of the old prophets is risen again. Jesus said, Simon Peter answering said, The Christ of God. † Jesus saith unto Peter, And I say unto thee, That thou art Peter, ‡ and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. And he straitly charged them that they should tell no man of him: that he was Jesus the Christ. ¶From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he, the Son of man, must go unto Jerusalem, and be killed, saying, He spake that saying openly. Then Peter began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. When Jesus had turned and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, ¶When he had called the people unto him, with his disciples also, he said unto them, For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, lose his own soul? or be cast away? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory: and cometh in the glory of his Father with his holy angels. And he said, 56:* The interested reader will enjoy paralleling these three indicated texts. 56:† Thus Luke. Mark has it, "Thou art the Christ." Matthew has it: "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." 56:‡ Turn back to footnote in VI of this book. 57:* ". . . offence: stumbling-block.

1 Cary W = "As much as Christians avoid and even denounce reincarnation, the Lord's own Jewish followers had perceptions of Him that He was a reincarnation of a prior Prophet of God.  This must be considered, for if He did create us eternal, just where do we go after death?  Is it possible that the Buddhists may not be too far off the mark in believing that all souls remain in form, life after life, until they ascend into a purified faith and selfless devotion to the Most High!"
2 Cary W = "Some churches may teach this scripture refers to Peter as being the rock upon which the church is built, yet this statement may not be so much about Peter, but about his recognition.  Another way to state His intent may be, "The rock solid foundation which life and holy relationship, thus the Kingdom of God is built is upon the recognition of Christ in each other, beginning with the Most Worthy, Jesus!"
3 Cary W = "Clearly Jesus is saying if we put our small, limited, sinful little, pitiful self first...its need for security, things, people and comfort instead of placing our trust that Christ wants us to come into His Identity as a Son of God, the only Son, because in God, we are all one Son!"
