Could it mean that as Jesus knew, His Church was to be build in Rome where Peter eventually went and founded the first Church. Reference of course to the gates of hell not prevailing upon it, could have meant that unlike the Church in the East, Constantinople, that was prevailed upon by the Ottoman Turks, where the gates of hell are in Greek mythology, and ...

Ellen G. White, who many in the Seventh-Day Adventist church consider a modern day prophet (according to Rev. 12:19, and 19:10) had this to say about this event. I believe she wrote this by inspiration of Jehovah our God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in her wonderful book on the Life of Christ called, "The Desire of Ages": Christ arose from the ...
