The Man Who Never Died: The Life and Adventures of St. Peter, the First Pope - For Children eBook By Rev. Gerald T. Brennan .epub, 96 pages, Ages 10+ Yes, as you'll read in these exciting pages, Peter, the first pope, died (as will all who ever take his place). But each will be replaced by yet another pope, who will also be known as "Peter." In this way, Peter became the man who never died, fulfilling the promise that Jesus made to him: "Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church," the Church whose origins are told here, and which will also never die. These pages recount the adventures of Peter, the first pope, who just days after Jesus returned to Heaven, baptized three thousand people, and cured a lame man, soldiers then threw him into prison. Set free by a judge, Peter preached again, won more converts, and got jailed again . . . and again. Finally freed by angels, Peter traveled throughout Asia, setting up many new churches. Then he went to Rome, the capital of the Empire, where he converted many and, doing so, angered the pagan emperor Nero. There arrested Peter before a jeering crowd, they crucified him. Today, on the very spot where Peter was crucified, stands the most important Catholic Church in the world, St. Peter's Basilica. Nearby is the Vatican, the Church's worldwide headquarters, and for centuries home to the popes - men who are now known not merely by their chosen names but are also called "Peter".
