Matthew 16:16 -- Simon Peter replied: "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God."
Peter's dominant attribute is FAITH.
Jesus called Peter "the Rock", as symbol of strong, immovable FAITH and He said: "Upon this Rock I will build my church."
Peter was a prosperous fisherman when he was "called" to follow Jesus. In the beginning, his nature was fiery and impulsive, and it was not easy for him to give up all that he might follow the Master. Yet he renounced the world, became a brave and worthy Disciple, and finally was chosen by Jesus to lead the Disciples in the work they must do after the crucifixion.
Peter was told by Jesus that he would "deny Him three times", which he did. He suffered great remorse, even though it may be, as some scholars believe, that he had been "ordered" by Jesus to do this. In any case, Peter became a great, inspired leader -- not only for the original little band of Disciples who became "Apostles" -- but for "The Seventy" other Disciples sent forth, and for all early Christians who followed Jesus the Christ even in the face of persecution, exile and death.
Peter preached the gospel all his life, going forth as the others did, to carry the Word of God as a Light to people in darkness, even giving his life in the end, as Jesus did. Mark served as Peter's interpreter and writer. The Gospel of Mark, based on Peter's Aramaic records, is known as "the Gospel of action."

_________________________ SIMON, GIVEN THE NAME PETER or CEPHAS, 'THE ROCK' - A FISHERMAN Peter worked among the Jews before he eventually reached Rome, where he was traditionally the first bishop. Along with the Apostle Paul, he may have been executed around AD64 during the persecutions of Emperor Nero, or later in AD67. Apparently he was crucified, head-down, at his own request. Later traditions claim that St. Peter's in Rome was built over his grave.
