On This Rock

As for the declaration "on this rock I will build My church" (Matt. 16:18), certainly the Church has not been built upon the authority of a man. Rather, it has been built upon the ministry of the confession Peter made, in which he proclaims that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (Matt 16:16). Therefore, Christ addresses Peter as a minister, "On this rock," that is, this ministry. - Tractatus 25

Truely Historic. I'm suprised it didn't get more play.
