LOGOS TRADING POST - ON THIS ROCK

The Rock and Foundation of the Church

In a familiar passage of scripture, Jesus is seen establishing the foundation of His Church, as in, the movement and people we get to be a part of, even today. This founding is written about in Matthew 16:13-18, which says, “Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Simon Peter replied, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 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.’”

Among Bible scholars, there’s actually a bit of debate about what this scripture means. It has been commonly thought that “this rock” refers to Peter, as he was a very important disciple and apostle in the first century church movement. After all, Acts 2:38-42 says of him, “And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.’ And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, ‘Save yourselves from this crooked generation.’ So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.” Peter is certainly no small figure in the Kingdom of God; God filled Peter with His own Spirit and utilized him to make the first massive addition to the early Church. Even still, does that necessarily mean that Jesus was referring to Peter as the rock upon which the Church will be built?

Some would argue that this is not the case, and this argument is founded on Greek linguistics. Peter is the name English readers see in their Bibles, translated from its original Petros. Another Greek word that gives us “stone” or “rock” in translated works, however, is Petra. So the words of Jesus in Matthew 16:18 could be read like this: “And I tell you, you are Petros, and on this Petra I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” The similarities of these two words definitely means that the play on words was intentional in Christ’s word choice, but the fact that they are two different words is an important thing to consider as well.

What stems from this is the suggestion that Jesus is saying not that Peter is the foundation of the Church, but that his revelation by the Spirit of God is - his revelation that “You [Jesus] are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” This suggestion seems entirely possible considering the context and the original Greek rendering, and it does well to not entirely discount Peter’s importance in the Church’s foundation. Christ being revealed to all as the Son of the living God is the Petra, but Petros has been given a name intrinsically related to that Petra. Christ is the foundation, but Peter was given the opportunity to be one of the pioneers of building upon that foundation, and he did just that in Acts and over the remainder of his life.

Serpentine Necklaces & Reminders of the Early Church

The Psalmist writes in Psalm 18:2, “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold,” and the prophet Isaiah writes in Isaiah 26:4, “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

With the rock being such an important symbol in the Church’s foundation, the strength of stone being compared to God’s own immovable protection, we feel that stone cross necklaces and stone Christian jewelry serve as meaningful additions to our variety of products. Essentially since our inception, we have carried hand-carved Holy Land Olive Wood Christian gifts and Christian jewelry, which are beautiful and scripturally meaningful in their own right. However, these hand-carved serpentine stone products are worthy of their own spotlight. Stone carving is an art from that has endured the sands of time, much like God is an everlasting stone, and we are happy to work with artisans who carry on this art through stone cross necklaces, serpentine Christian fish necklaces, and any manner of serpentine Christian gift.

Serpentine stone is an especially beautiful stone for carving, a beautiful contrast being formed between the dark stone and the light engravings. We are also quite proud of these products because we have made every effort to carry designs that honor the Church’s legacy and it’s foundation, Jesus Christ. We, of course, have a few varieties of serpentine stone cross necklaces, to honor Him as our solid rock and to honor His sacrifice upon the cross that he carried. We also bring honor to early church traditions with engravings such as INRI or ICHTUS, or even our more simple Christian fish necklace.

In whatever case, we hope you’ll consider getting a serpentine necklace or stone Christian gift for yourself, but we also greatly hope that when you do, it can remind you of the truth that God is our rock, our fortress, and our steady foundation!
