“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it”
Peter the disciple of Jesus is tormented by his guilt at denying Jesus thrice and by failing to protect him against crucification. As the leader of the Apostles he embarks on a journey to create the Church of Christ the preeminent religion of the world. This includes building up the mythology of Jesus with miracles, and the appearance of Jesus’s lookalike ( one of Jesus’s brothers) as Jesus himself rising from the tomb. It also involves politics in terms of denying Jesus’s family any inheritance by claiming his birth from Holy Spirit and the Virginal Mother, pushing up the aging Mary mother of Jesus as an object of veneration and sidelining other apostles, maneuvering with Paul for doctrinal clarity and spreading Jesus’s name by aggressive evangelism . It is under Peter’s direction that Christianity makes the step to ally with the Romans and adopt Jews as an enemy, knowing it cannot survive by fighting both at the same time.
