Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
– Matthew 16:16
Jesus brought his disciples to Caesarea Philippi to ask them an important question; “Who do you say that I am?” He was standing infront of a cave thought to be an entrance to Hell; the domain of the god Pan. An impressive temple stood in front of the cave and idols to Pan’s family were placed in the niches to the right.
Against this backdrop that Jesus was revealed as the Son of God, saying; “upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:13-19).
