I'm Catholic and a CPA. I've have been studying Scripture for a while and like discussing different beliefs.

@Bagpipes I don't have an answer for you yet, but I'll gather some information and get it to you. The number of times it's used and how is interesting to me.

@Bagpipes Besides the various verses in Scripture that mention "Brood of vipers" (and how so many interpret those), are you looking specifically for experts of Greek?

@Jas3.1 Ok. Thanks.

@Susan I can see from within Mike's answer that some may say this gives Peter authority to forgive sins. At the same time, these 2 verses alone show he can keep some things bound; my thought is that he couldn't really keep sins "bound". Thanks.

Help me understand. Are you saying this includes a priest's authority with Jesus present to forgive sins, counsel, etc. at confessions during the sacrament of Reconciliation? Thanks.

@Susan Thanks. Mike's answer you note does address a good amount of this; it includes some large differences with interpretations.

comment What does Paul mean by “unworthy manner” in 1 Corinthians 11:27-32?
&Tyler Thanks. One thing I find very interesting is where it says that the bread and cup were picked up "after" dinner. 1 Cor 11:23 He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
