[quote:3btt3kvb]Yes, according to St.Matthew chapter 16. Yet, according to St.Matthew 18:18, this same authority was also extended to the other Apostles. IOW, while it is first promised to St.Peter, it was not limited to him.

Thus, typologically St.Peter is “the first”, not “the unique”. [/quote:3btt3kvb]

Is that so? Show me where the other Apostles recieve the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Unfortunately for those who don’t hold to Peter’s primacy, Peter is the ONLY Apostle given the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Now just of curiosity, how DO you explain this?
