Christ Will Build His Church
The One Foundation

  • Foundation Laid: Apostolic Witness to Christ
  • Building Plans Set: Christ the Master Builder
  • Ongoing Authority & Responsibility

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Matthew 16:13-20. What do we learn about the crowds from their assessment of who Jesus is?
  2. What is significant about Peter’s assessment of Jesus? How is it different from the crowds? How did Peter figure out who Jesus was? Was Peter’s understanding of Jesus complete (see v. 22)?
  3. What or who is the rock or foundation for the church? Compare with Ephesians 2:19-21.
  4. How does Christ build his church? What authority and responsibility does he share?

Memory Verse of the Week:
Matthew 16:18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (ESV)
