Spreading The Word Without Saying A Word Ministry
By: Chico and Debbie Jimenez
EXPOSED: MORE LIES FROM THE CATHOLIC RELIGION, PETER WAS NOT A ROMAN;
PETER WAS A JEW!!!
The catholic religion claims that Peter the Apostle was a Roman. They use the following scripture as the basis for their “false claim” that Peter founded the catholic religion. Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
LET’S SEE WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS ABOUT THE MATTER…
The following verse should clear this up; once and for all: Galatians 2:14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel,
I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew,
livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
THAT VERSE IS CONCRETE EVIDENCE IN OUR EYES THAT PETER WAS A JEW PREACHING ONLY TO THE JEWS, BUT LET’S DELVE A LITTLE DEEPER FOR THE SKEPTICS!!!
Most of us already know that Jesus changed Peter’s name from Simon Barjona, TO PETER, Simon and Barjona both mean: ISRAELITE = JEW!!!
- 4613. Simon see’-mone of Hebrew origin (8095); Simon (i.e. Shimon), the name of nine Israelites:–Simon.
- 920. Barionas bar-ee-oo-nas’ of Chaldee origin (1247 and 3124); son of Jonas (or Jonah); Bar-jonas, an Israelite:–Bar-jona.
- 2475. Israelites is-rah-ale-ee’-tace from 2474; an “Israelite”, i.e. descendant of Israel (literally or figuratively):–Israelite.
Matthew 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? Matthew 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. Matthew 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matthew 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Why did Jesus change his name from Simon Barjona to Peter? Because Peter means “Rock”. Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Peter – 4074. Petros pet’-ros apparently a primary word; a (piece of) rock (larger than 3037); as a name, Petrus, an apostle:—Peter, rock.
Jesus used Peter as the “Rock or Foundation” to build the “Body of Christ” also known as “The Church”!!! Another interesting thing that I would like to point out is that, up until the time that Saul/Paul came into the picture, the Gospel was preached ONLY to the Jews/ISRAELITES, NOT TO THE GENTILES!!! As you will see in the folowing verses,
Peter was specifically commanded by Jesus to ONLY preach to the Jews/ISRAELITES.
Matthew 10:2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Matthew 10:3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Matthew 10:4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Matthew 10:6 But go rather to
the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
ANOTHER CONCRETE PIECE OF EVIDENCE THAT
PETER DID NOT START THE CATHOLIC RELIGION!!!
Now let’s look at Acts chapter 26 where Paul is recounting to King Agrippa, the events leading up to Jesus commanding Paul to preach “The Gospel” to the Gentiles…
Acts 26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. Acts 26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Acts 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee.
Let’s look at Ephisians for further evidence that it was Paul who was sent to the Gentiles, NOT PETER!!!
Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ…
Now look at Galatians Chapter 2…
Galatians 2:7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me (PAUL), as the gospel of the circumcision* was unto Peter; Galatians 2:8 For He (JESUS) that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision*, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles: Galatians 2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen**, and they unto the circumcision*.
*Genesis 17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. READ GENESIS CHAPTER 17 for the understanding of the circumcision being descendants of Abraham, Jews / NOT Gentiles.
**heathen – 1484. ethnos eth’-nos probably from 1486; a race (as of the same habit), i.e. a tribe; specially, a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually, by implication, pagan):–Gentile, heathen, nation, people.
DON’T BE DECEIVED BY FALSE DOCTRINES AND FALSE CLAIMS, READ THE WORD OF GOD FOR YOURSELF!!! ALL OF THE ANSWERS ARE IN HIS WRITTEN WORD!!!
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Romans 3:4b Let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
