Tittel

Jesus' promise for his church that 'the Gates of Hades will not prevail against it' (Matt 16:18c)

Sammendrag

The combination of the phrases "gates of Hades" as subject, "will not prevail against" as predicate and the church as object (albeit, in the genitive) in Matt 16:18c appears puzzling. The gates are a pars-pro-toto term for the whole of Hades, the underworld. Hades is not only the abode of the dead, but the home of the devil and his demonic servants. Matt 16:18c expresses the firm promise of Jesus that the powers of evil will not be successful in their ferocious attack on his church during the eschatological turmoil at the end of the age.
