Vine continues his comments:

“…in Matt. 16: 18, metaphorically, of Christ and the testimony concerning him; here the distinction between petra, concerning the Lord himself, and petros, the apostle, is clear.”

Conclusion:Jesus remains the same (Heb. 13: 8). The churches of men are built upon the sand and are plants that God will root up one day (Matt. 15: 13). Jesus’ church shall stand because it is built upon the rock of Jesus’ deity!
