“Upon This Rock I Will Build My Church”

In Matthew 16 the Lord is teaching His disciples the contrast between the doctrine of the Pharisees and the doctrine of Christ.

The Doctrine of the Pharisees (Matthew 16:5-12, 13:33)

Matthew 16:5-6
And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Matthew 16:7
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.

Matthew 16:8-9
Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Matthew 16:10
Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Matthew 16:11-12
How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

When we read this we tend to get lost in the spiritual meaning of five loaves and seven loaves, and five thousand men and four thousand men, and twelve baskets and seven baskets. But we need to realize that the Lord gave His disciples already a parable; the parable of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. And now the Lord is giving them an explanation of this parable. We should not make the explanation of this parable more complex than the parable itself.

So, what is the explanation that the Lord Jesus gave?

He said that the leaven represented the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees. And as a contrast He told them that the nature of the doctrine of Christ is shown by the miraculous multiplication of the bread and the fishes.

What did the Lord Jesus mean by that?

First of all, leaven by itself does not do anything. But leaven hidden in dough is doing the work of fermenting the dough. It is like a works gospel that is hidden in the midst of people who desire to worship Christ as the pure Bread of life. And we have seen in Matthew 13:33 that leaven in three measures of meal represents a prophecy that works gospels will infiltrate the church and will eventually change the Gospel of grace into damning works gospels.

That is why the Lord Jesus warns us, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees”.

And notice that the Lord is warning us for both the legalistic gospel of the Pharisees as well as for the liberal gospel of the Sadducees, for both of them preach a gospel of works: the requirement of continually sacrificing, every day, or else you cannot be saved.

On the other hand, the Good News of the Gospel of Christ is that this Bread of life was broken once, sufficient for the saving of many, and this must not be repeated for His sacrifice was perfect and complete.

And this message of the broken Bread of life must be given freely to many for the healing and nourishment for their souls. And Christ will make sure that there will always be an endless supply of messengers who will bring this message of salvation into all the world. And thus, when people are in a church where Christ is crucified over and over again, every time the Eucharist is served, they are in a church which has been overrun by the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. They are in a church that brings condemnation. In addition, Jews are looking for visible signs. And notice that the Lord calls them a wicked and adulterous generation in verse 4, for we must we must live by faith rather than trust in external signs or experiences. But what then is:

The Doctrine of Christ (Matthew 16:13-17, Colossians 1:26-27)

In the remainder of this chapter the Lord Jesus teaches us the basic principles of the doctrine of the true Gospel of salvation by grace alone, through Christ alone. Here in this chapter the Lord teaches us:

1) Who is Jesus Christ;

2) The free gift of salvation;

3) Christ will build His church;

4) The gates of Hell shall not prevail;

5) The keys of the kingdom;

6) Christ makes us His ambassadors;

7) Christ must be crucified for our sins;

8) How then shall we live?

This is the sequence in which we find these subject matters in this chapter, and this will be how we shall discuss it. We read here in Matthew 16:13-17,

Matthew 16:13
When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Matthew 16:16
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Matthew 16:17
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Who is Jesus Christ?

Through the mouth of Peter we learn that He is “the Christ, the anointed one, the Son of the living God”.

What does this mean “the Son of the living God”?

It means that Jesus Christ is fully man, whom God incarnated in the womb of His mother Mary, and who was united with God the Son, the second Person of the Triune God.

And so, the one person Jesus Christ is both fully man and fully God, with both a human nature and a divine nature at the same time, for God the Son is fully God.

It was necessary for Him to be fully man, for only then could He make atonement for the sins of man. It was necessary for Him to be fully God, for only then could He bear the enormous payment for our sins, the equivalent of an eternity in Hell.

But as a mortal man He would have been consumed in the process.

When the Lord Jesus answered Peter saying, “Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven” we must understand that this blessed state of Peter was not reserved for Peter only, but for all the New Testament saints who will have the complete revelation of God in their hands. This mystery of Christ, and Him crucified, and Him building the church for which He suffered and died, is a revelation that was not only made clear to Peter, but to all the saints. We read in:

Colossians 1:26-27
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

“The riches of the glory of this mystery” has now been revealed and is preached among the Gentiles.

And what are these riches?

They are the riches of “Christ in you, the hope of glory”, and the hope of glory refers to the glory we shall receive when we are with Him in the New Heaven & New Earth.

All the saints shall be able to read and understand this. This understanding is not reserved for one person, who will then claim that all of us are ignorant, and let him alone tell us what the meaning of the Scriptures are.

This is a lie!

This is what the Roman church has said for centuries, and that is why they deprived me of reading the Word of God. I did not even see a Bible until I was 40 years old.

And today, when one man claims that Christ will come again in October 21 of 2011, but this revelation is reserved only for a few who can see it, then I can confidently say, This is a lie!

This mystery must be understood by all the saints, not just one person. Anyone who follows a one man gospel is following a false gospel.

Let us return to Matthew 16:17.

God’s Free Gift of Grace (Matthew 16:17, Ephesians 1:4, Jeremiah 31:3, Romans 9:16, Philippians 2:13)

Matthew 16:17
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

It is as plain as day that Peter could not have figured this out by himself. The Lord Jesus called Peter blessed, because he had become born again.
Peter had become a vessel fit for receiving the wisdom of God unto salvation. In fact, Peter had been chosen by God to become born from above, and the Bible teaches us in Ephesians 1:4 that God has chosen him for this destiny before the foundation of the world.

In this statement of the Lord Jesus we recognize that Peter has been unconditionally elected unto salvation before God made the first speck of dust. But Peter was not the only one who received this privilege. God said to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 31:3, “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee”.

In Ephesians 1:4 God says to all the saints that we have been chosen, or elected, unto salvation from before the foundation of the world. It is not by our own free will that we have come to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. This faith did not come out of our own intelligent mind, but it was a gift from God. Throughout the Bible there are hundreds of verses which confirm that God bestows His salvation on the humble, who will give Him all the honor and the glory, and God passes by all those who are stuck up in pride, claiming that they have made a decision for Jesus. We read,

Romans 9:16
So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

In other words, only by the mercy of God can anyone of us receive the salvation that we so dearly need. And like in the case of Peter, this gift of salvation is given to us freely by grace. And the term “by grace” implies that it must be a free gift, for the word “grace” means “unmerited favor”.

This entire chapter of Romans 9 is a goldmine of doctrines referring to God’s salvation by grace alone. We find this also in Philippians 2:13, where we read about God’s irresistible grace working in those whom He wants to save,

Philippians 2:13
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

God works in us so that we will carry out those things that will lead to the purpose God has in mind. Let us now return to the Gospel of Matthew, where we read about Christ building His church. We read in

Matthew 16:18
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

We should keep in mind that the English KJ translation is not the infallible Word of God, but the original Hebrew and Greek texts are. And the Greek text says in Matthew 16:18, “Thou art Petros, and upon this The Petra I will build my church”. Peter is not the Rock that the Lord was pointing to.

Upon This The Petra (Matthew 16:18, John 1:42, Acts 2:47, Ephesians 2:19-20, Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 5:25)

Paraphrased the Lord Jesus is saying to Peter, “Thou art Petros, you are a stone. You have made this wonderful confession which indicates that My heavenly Father has chosen you and loves you. You are rock-solid in this faith as an unchangeable stone, because My heavenly Father has revealed the truth to you”.

We know that is the truth, for God explained this to us in John 1:42, where we read, “Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone”. Cephas is the Aramaic name, Petros is the Greek name, and Peter is the English name, all referring to the same person, all meaning the same thing: a stone. But in Matthew 16:18 the Lord Jesus used two different words: Petros and Petra, and we must be aware of what God wrote.

Moreover the Lord said actually “The Petra”, indicating that He was referring to only one Petra.

What is the meaning of Petra?

We obtain a perfect understanding of the difference between Petros and Petra when we remember the city of Petra, the capital city of the Nabataeans, in the land of the Moabites, which still exists, and which is an entire city carved out of the rocks and into the rocks. When we mention the name Petra, we think of the incredibly high rocks surrounding this city of Petra. And so we see the enormous difference between Petros and Petra. It is the difference between a pebble and a massive mountain made of one Rock.

When the Lord Jesus said, “Upon this The Petra I will build my church” He was not pointing to Peter, but He was pointing to Himself. Christ is the Rock on which the church is built.

And what is the church?

The concept of the church is shown in the Bible as a local church, which took the place of the local Jewish synagogue. However, the church was established by God, whereas the synagogue was not. God says in Acts 2:47, “And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved”.

God is in charge of making a church grow or not grow. The purpose of the church is to provide fellowship among the saints, for we need fellowship, and we need to obey the Lord’s command to love one another. And so, we read in Ephesians 2:19-20,

Ephesians 2:19-20
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

You see, Christ’s church is not a group of strangers, but fellow saints, and is called the household of God. And this assembly of the saints is built upon the teachings of the apostles and prophets, with the Lord Jesus Christ being the chief corner stone of the spiritual foundation of the church. Therefore Christ will never give up His place of authority over the church.

But we must also realize that the church is an earthly manifestation of the kingdom of God. Therefore we realize that the church is not perfect. There are unsaved people in the congregation, in the midst of the saints. And therefore we need to establish some rules of conduct, so that the unsaved part of the congregation will not overtake us.

Even though a major part of the congregation may be unsaved, as long as there is a nucleus of saved people in the church, Christ still calls it His church. For example, from the seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3 there are five that are corrupt. But as long as Christ still calls them His church there is still hope. And even though there are unsaved people in the church, the Lord Jesus Christ is Lord over that local church, and He has a task for everyone in that congregation.

We all are appointed to be His servants, for Christ is the head of the body, the church. We read in Colossians 1:18, “And he is the head of the body, the church”.

But when we read in the Bible about the Bride of Christ, or about the church of the Firstborn, or about a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, then we must understand that God speaks only of the nucleus of saved people in the church.

However the majority of verses in the Bible referring to the church imply an imperfect church. The Lord Jesus Christ came to purchase His Bride, the nucleus of true believers. But in addition He purchased the organism that is called the church, lock, stock and barrel. For we read in Ephesians 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it”.

And so, Christ’s faithfulness to His church is not a temporary thing, nor will Christ divorce His church for any arbitrary reason, such as when the calendar says so. This then is the church that is built upon Christ as the Rock, the solid Petra.

“The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It” (Matthew 16:18, Acts 20:28-31, Galatians 1:8-9)

Matthew 16:18
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

What does this mean that “the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it”?

Does it mean that once a church is established it cannot die?

This cannot be the true meaning, for we have seen in history many churches that have come up and died. Their empty shells testify of the fact that they were once alive. But since Christ has suffered and died for His saints, and since He has purchased the churches where His saints are congregating, and since Christ is not a liar, we must understand that if a church still has a nucleus of true believers, the assault of Satan and his human helpers will not be able to destroy that church, for that is Christ’s church.

Christ will not divorce Himself from a church. However, the people in a church could take the action of divorcing themselves from Christ. The Lord shows us in this example how that might come to pass. The apostle Paul was returning to Jerusalem from his third missionary journey, and he passed by the city of Ephesus. Then he sent for the elders of the church of Ephesus to come to him, and he warned them in:

Acts 20:28
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Acts 20:29
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

The mandate to the Ephesian elders: “feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood”.

The Holy Ghost has made you overseers of the flock of Christ; the flock consisting of sheep and goats. Nevertheless, feed the flock. Do not let strange doctrines in. We dare not ignore this mandate, for Christ has purchased this flock with His own blood. But then he looked the Ephesian elders straight in the eye and said, “Out of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them, and you will be like greedy wolves, not sparing the flock”.

And who shall they be able to deceive?

The elect cannot be deceived, but those who are still unsaved shall be swayed by doctrines that are pleasing to their ears, and they will believe that they are serving Christ when in fact they are serving Satan.

And thus destruction of the church comes from within. Christ will defend His church. But when from the inside the church is changed to a congregation of Baal, then Christ will pull His saints out of that church, and then it is no longer a church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, it is a dreadful sin if someone plots to destroy the church. It is a dreadful sin to claim that all the churches on this side and on the other side of the world are dead because his calendar says so.

It is entirely another gospel than the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, who purchased the church with His own blood. But Christ will avenge His church against all the wolves that are out there. Through the pen of the apostle Paul the Lord gives this warning in Galatians 1:8-9,

Galatians 1:8-9
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

And so, it is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, who will not let such a crime pass by unpunished. We are hereby reminded of all the kings of Judah who became fools in their old age; every single one of them. Let us now return to the Gospel of Matthew.

What are the Keys of the Kingdom? (Matthew 16:19, 1 Corinthians 1:18-21, 2:2, Romans 10:17)

Matthew 16:19
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

What are the keys of the kingdom of heaven?

Who will make a decision whether someone may enter or may not enter the kingdom of heaven?

Well, if Christ is the author and finisher of our faith, Hebrews 12:2, and if we read in John 1:13 that no one can come into heaven on the coattails of another person, and if we read in John 6:44 that no one can come to the Lord Jesus unless the Father draws him to Jesus, then we must conclude that only Christ can really have the keys of the kingdom of heaven.

And Christ cannot give those keys out of His hand, for then all those Bible verses become lies. And so, we realize that Christ is giving us work to do to accomplish His goals and His purposes. We are not really given those keys of the kingdom of heaven, but we are only instruments in His hand.

And in what ways are we accomplishing the goals of Christ?

In what way are we leading someone unto the path of salvation?

Obviously it is through the preaching of the Gospel, for only through the hearing of the true Gospel will God the Holy Spirit incline a person’s ear to listen to the preaching of this Gospel. And this is indeed what we read in 1 Corinthians 1:18-21,
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise, where is the scribe, where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

What is the foolishness of preaching?

In the eyes of the world our preaching is foolishness.

Since they believe that there is no truth at all in those things that we preach, then how can anything good come from it?

But God uses this foolishness of preaching to bring the true Gospel to those of His elect whom He wants to convert in their soul.

God says in Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. Thus when Christ told Peter that He will give him the keys of the kingdom of heaven, we understand that Christ also tells us that He gives us the keys of the kingdom of heaven; not later but now. We must be willing to bring the Gospel to all who have not heard and who are willing to listen.

And what part of the Gospel should we bring them?

1 Corinthians 2:2
For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

When we bring the Gospel of Christ we must let all things be focused on Christ crucified. This is the nucleus of what we bring. And God the Holy Spirit shall give us the words to speak. Let us now return to Matthew 16:19, and let us consider what the meaning is of:

The Power to Bind and Loose (Matthew 16:19)

Matthew 16:19
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Actually we must again refer to the literal Greek text, which reads a little differently. The Greek says,

Matthew 16:19
And whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall, having been bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall, having been loosed in heaven.

In other words, the prior action was an act of God in heaven, who has ruled if a person would have his sins forgiven or if a person should remain unsaved. We are used only as instruments of God. We must keep in mind that the Lord does not release any authority of salvation to fallible mankind.

Man does not have the ability to forgive sins. The loosing refers to loosing someone from his bondage to sin and Satan, and to forgive this person his or her sins. We know that in a certain denomination the priests have the audacity to forgive sins. But that is all a lie and an abomination, for no man has the power to forgive sins.

God in His wisdom ruled that through the foolishness of preaching the Word of God the doors of the kingdom of heaven are opening or closing. By the foolishness of preaching the Gospel out of the mouths of sinful men, preaching to other sinners in the pews who in the main are on the way to Heaven, but preaching to them as if they are on the way to Hell, it pleases God to save some of those sinners from the mighty enslavement of Satan, and to set them free from a world that is called “the Bottomless Pit”. A world that is eager and ready to swallow them up again into enslavement to Satan.

But God says, “You are safe and secure here because I have already taken you out of this Bottomless Pit. I have used the foolishness of preaching to knock some sense in you.”

We make a decision with whom we want to share the Gospel, but God makes the decision whether this person would become saved. For if Christ did not pay on the cross for this person’s sins in AD 33, then this would not be a person in whom the Holy Spirit would work a work of faith.

Christ Must Be Crucified (Matthew 16:21-23, Galatians 3:13)

Matthew 16:21-23
From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

What was going on?

Why did the Lord Jesus call Peter Satan?

Well, He did not call Peter Satan. The Lord just finished telling Peter that he was blessed, because the Father in heaven revealed unto him that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God. We must harmonize verse 23 with verse 17. Peter was not suddenly Satan, but the words that Peter spoke out of love for his Master’s physical well-being, were also the words that the Lord Jesus heard from the mouth of Satan.

This was another temptation from Satan, to convince the Lord Jesus that it was not worth going to the cross to atone for the sins of these ungrateful human beings who were so rotten to the core. But Christ loves us and was determined to finish His task of paying for our sins. And thus He turned to Satan and said, “Get thee behind me Satan; you are a hindrance to me”. You see, the essence of the Gospel is that Christ must be crucified on a wooden cross, for we read in Galatians 3:13,

Galatians 3:13
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

It was for this reason that God waited for Christ’s coming until the Romans had invaded the land, and the Roman form of execution would become the law of the land. Christ had to become accursed in our place. The man Christ Jesus had to take up our sins, and suffer in our place, because He as the Lamb of God had taken it upon Himself to suffer in our place the accursedness of our sins. And He was able to endure our penalty, because the power of God was in Him. Only when our sins were paid by Christ can we become saved, for only if our sins are paid in full can we be adopted as the Bride of Christ, and as sons of God. And that is why Christ must be crucified. Let us now continue with verse 24.

How Then Shall We Live? (Matthew 16:24-27, 28:19-20)

Matthew 16:24-27
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to His works.

Now, this is a very uncomfortable statement the Lord Jesus made in verse 24.

Is this optional?

No, this is not an option.

Everyone who has become saved must be willing to follow Christ in His footsteps. The Christians in the first century AD saw it most clearly, for they were persecuted and cast into prison, and thrown to the lions. This was the literal fulfillment of Christ’s command to deny ourselves, and take up our cross, and follow Him.

How easy do we have it now?

In this bloodless society of today there is not a chance that we would be cast to the lions.

And so, what would be the application for us today?

The answer is found in the next two verses. Whosoever shall work hard to save his earthly life, or to give his earthly life some more comfort, or who works hard to be rich in material goods, shall loose his soul, for he had no time for the nourishment of his soul. But whosoever shall give his earthly life in service to the Lord shall be rewarded richly in his soul, provided we are serving the true Lord of heaven and earth, the God of the Bible.

For if, with the help of God the Holy Spirit, we dedicate ourselves to the nourishment of our soul, if we dedicate ourselves to the welfare of our fellow saints, if we dedicate ourselves to studying the Word of God it means we have been regenerated, and God blesses his saints with spiritual blessings here on earth, which means we shall find a full and satisfying life here on earth, and eternal life later.

And what is the first and foremost important thing that we can do?

Listen to what the Lord Jesus commands us in Matthew 28:19-20,

Matthew 28:19-20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

And before we close, let us carefully note what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 16:27, “And then He shall reward every man according to His works”.

Is this supporting the doctrine of special rewards given for good works done in this life?

Absolutely not!

This is not a reward to every man according to man’s works, but according to Christ’s work. This is His work. It is only through Christ’s work that we can look forward to the wonderful gift of grace that is called eternal life with Christ in the New Heaven & New Earth.
