"Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18"I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. 19"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven
Is it so that Peter symbolizes the entire Church, so in fact Jesus talked to Peter to speak to the entire Church?
And you have Ephesians 2:19-20
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,[a] but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
But if Jesus spoke to Peter as to the entire Church, it would strenghten his primacy, in my opinion.
SO, how do my orthodox brothers interpret the scene in Matthew?
