so far I have proven that St John Chrysostum and St Hiliary both believed St Peter was the rock, they have stated that the confession was the rock also which doesn't disprove St Peter as being the rock
so that's 2 fathers who believe St Peter is the rock vs 0 that state he is not the rock.
which fits into Basil of Seleucia Oratio XXV.4
St. Ambrose , I have proven with quote below St Peter is the rock as well as his confession 3 -0
Bede the Venerable Homily 23
And I tell you: you are Peter; because I am the rock, you are Rocky, Peter-I mean, rock doesn't come from Rocky, but Rocky from rock, just as Christ doesn't come from Christian, but Christian from Christ; and upon this rock I will build my Church (Mt 16:17-18); not upon Peter, or Rocky, which is what you are, but upon the rock which you have confessed. I will build my Church though; I will build you, because in this answer of yours you represent the Church
St. Ambrose of Milan Commentary on Ephesians 2:20
St Ambrose stating the confession is part of he rock, does he state St Peter is not the rock?
here's my quote to support my claim
The Lord says to Peter: “I say to you,” He says, “that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it. And to you I will give the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever things you bind on earth shall be bound also in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth, they shall be loosed also in heaven” [Matt. 16:18-19]. And again He says to him after His resurrection: “Feed my sheep” [John 21:17]. On him He builds the Church, and to him He gives the command to feed the sheep; and although He assigns a like power to all the Apostles, yet He founded a single chair, and He established by His own authority a source and an intrinsic reason for that unity. Indeed, the others were that also which Peter was; but a primacy is given to Peter, whereby it is made clear that there is but one Church and one chair. So too, all are shepherds, and the flock is shown to be one, fed by all the Apostles in single-minded accord. If someone does not hold fast to this unity of Peter, can he imagine that he still holds the faith? If he desert the chair of Peter upon whom the Church was built, can he still be confident that he is in the Church? (“Commentaries on Twelve of David’s Psalms”)
All these things doth the faith demand that is based on the rock of the true Stone, that is Christ
St. Aphraates Demonstration I.2-6,13,19
the true stone is Christ, all agreed, nothing here disproves St Peter is also called the rock by Christ
The Lord said to Peter: on this rock I will build My Church…On this catholic confession of faith he establishes the faithful in life.
St. Augustine of Hippo Sermon 270.2
St Augustine stating the confession is part of he rock, does he state St Peter is not the rock?
here's my support
Remember, in this man Peter, the rock. He's the one, you see, who on being questioned by the Lord about who the disciples said he was, replied, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' On hearing this, Jesus said to him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Bar Jona, because flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you'...'You are Peter, Rocky, and on this rock I shall build my Church, and the gates of the underworld will not conquer herhttp://www.christiantruth.com/articles/fathersmt16.html
For the Church cannot be moved because it is known to have been founded on that most solid rock, namely, Christ the Lord.
Cassiodorus Expositions in the Psalms, Psalm 45.5
Christ is also the rock, does it state St Peter is not the rock, no
Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; that is, on the faith of his confession.
St. John Chrysostom Homilies on the Gospel of Saint Matthew, Homily 54.2-3
I already provided the quote from St John
Now Christ called this confession a rock, and he named the one who confessed it 'Peter,' perceiving the appellation which was suitable to the author of this confession
Basil of Seleucia Oratio XXV.4
For now I'll give the orthodox this one
You are Peter and on this rock from which you have taken your name, that is, on myself, I will build my Church, upon that perfection of faith which you confessed I will build my Church...
Bede the Venerable Homily 23
And upon this rock, that is, upon the Lord and Saviour who gave participation in his name to the one who in faith recognized, loved, and confessed him, so that Peter might be called by the name of the rock: upon this rock the Church is built, so that one does not attain to eternal life and the share of the elect except by faith in and love of Christ, by partaking of Christ's sacraments, and by observing his commandments.83
this you can argue either way, I say still 5-1
Jesus said to divine Peter: 'You are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church.' Now by the word 'rock', Jesus indicated, I think, the immoveable faith of the disciple.
St. Cyril of Alexandria Commentary on Isaiah IV.2
St. Cyril of Alexandria: "Set over the holy disciples;" "the Prince of the holy disciples;" "Prince of the Apostles;" "the Leader" (In Joann. lib. x. tom. vii. p. 924; ibid., lib. xii. p. 1064; Thesaur., tom. viii. p. 340; Hom, xiii., De Fest. Pasch., tom. x. Pt. ii. p. 105, ed. Migne).
for now I'll give the orthodox this one 5-2
For since the truth shines forth from the Church Catholic alone, the Lord says that there is a place by Him, from which He is to be seen. Moses is placed on a rock, to behold the form of God, because if any one maintains not the firmness of Faith, he discerns not the Divine presence. Of which firmness the Lord says, 'Upon this rock I shall build my Church.
St. Gregory the Great Morals on the Book of Job, Book XXXV.13
Who does not know that the holy Church is founded on the solidity of the Chief Apostle, whose name expressed his firmness, being called Peter from Petra (Rock)?…Though there were many Apostles, only the See of the Prince of the Apostles…received supreme authority in virtue of its very principate.” (Letter to the Patriarch Eulogius of Alexandria, Ep. 7)”
Christ, who searcheth the hearts, did not ask His disciples, 'Whom do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?' Because He did not know the varying opinion of men concerning Himself, but was desirous, of teaching all that same confession which Peter, inspired by Him, laid as the basis and foundation, on which the Lord built His Church.
St. Isidore of Pelusium Epistle 235
I'll give you this one cuz I'm too lazy
Moreover, Christ is called a 'foundation' because faith is established in him, and because the catholic Church is built upon him (Christ).
St. Isidore of Seville Etym. VII.2
Christ is the foundation, we agree,speaks nothing to Matt 16
So, of all our faith, our Lord Jesus Christ is the firm and true foundation; and upon this rock our faith is established.
St. Jacob of Nisibis Sermon 1 de Fide i.13
The rock is Christ, Who gave to His apostles, that they also should be called rocks, 'Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church
St. Jerome Commentary on Amos vi.12-13
Letters from St. Jerome to Pope Damasus
"Therefore, though your greatness makes me fear, yet your kindness invites me. From the priest I ask the salvation of the victim; from the shepherd the safety of his sheep. Away with envy, away with all canvassing of the Roman power; it is but with the successor of the fisherman and the disciple of the Cross that I speak. Following none in the first place but Christ, I am in communion with your beatitude, that is, with the Chair of Peter. On that rock I know the Church is built. Whosoever shall eat the Lamb outside that house if profane. If any be not with Noah in the Ark, he shall perish beneath the sway of the deluge. http://www.biblicalcatholic.com/apologetics/num53.htm
This is that firm and immovable faith upon which, as upon the rock whose surname you bear, the Church is founded.
St. John of Damascus Homily on the Transfiguration
too tired, will give this one 7-4
And if we too have said like Peter, 'Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,' not as if flesh and blood had revealed it unto us, but by light from the Father in heaven having shone in our heart, we become a Peter, and to us there might be said by the Word, 'Thou art Peter,' etc. For a rock is every disciple of Christ of whom those drank who drank of the spiritual rock which followed them, and upon every such rock is built every word of the church, and the polity in accordance with it; for in each of the perfect, who have the combination of words and deeds and thoughts which fill up the blessedness, is the church built by God.
Origen Commentary on Matthew, Chapters 10-11
Origen (230-250 A.D.):
"See what the Lord said to Peter, that great foundation of the Church, and most solid Rock, upon which Christ founded the Church ..." (Origen, In Exodus. Hom. v. . 4 tom. ii).
now you can answer the following
Tertullian: "Peter, who is called the Rock whereon the Church was to be built, and who obtained the keys of the kingdom of heaven” (De Praescr. Haeret., c. 22).
St. Hippolytus (225 A.D.):
"Peter, the Rock of the Church ..." (Hippolytus in S. Theophan, n. 9, Galland, ii. p. 494). "Peter, the Rock of the Faith, whom Christ our Lord called blessed, the teacher of the Church, the first disciple, he who has the Keys of the Kingdom." (Hippolytus, Ex Fabricio, Op. Hippol. tom. ii. De Fine Mundi et de Antichristo, n. 9
Optatus (367 A.D.)
"You cannot deny that you are aware that in the city of Rome the episcopal chair was given first to Peter; the chair in which Peter sat, the same who was head - that is why he is also called Cephas ["Rock"] - of all the apostles; the one chair in which unity is maintained by all" (The Schism of the Donatists 2:2 [A.D. 367]).
St. Gregory Nazianzen (370 A.D.):
"See thou that of the disciples of Christ, all of whom were great and deserving of the choice, one is called a Rock and entrusted with the foundations of the Church." (Gregory Naz., T. i or xxxii).
