Simon Peter Carrying The Keys (Matthew 16:13-19)
Stained glass window situated in the nave of the Cathedral
Peter, who we call Saint Peter, was one of Jesus’s twelve disciples.
Jesus asks his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” Peter replies, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, an enormous declaration of faith. Jesus then says to Peter, “I will give you the keys of heaven”.
This window depicts that scene, Peter carrying the keys.
Peter became one of the founders of the Christian church after the death and resurrection of Jesus.
