Abijah you said the following:

But context again is key to understanding. In Matthew chapter 16, Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They repied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simo Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." In one of the other Gospels Jesus says, "At last you believe." In Matthew, Jesus relied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter (petros, a small stone), and on this rock (petra, monolith or bedrock) I will build my church and the gates of Hell will not overcome it." I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven...."

Abijah at least you told us the truth that Jesus is not the prophet like Moses but is the Messiah. Abijah here are the verses you referred to:

13When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" 14They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" 16Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. 18And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." 20Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ. (Matthew 16:13-20)

See Jesus is not the prophet like Moses, Muhammad (pbuh) is. Those prophecies that I mention in my last comment, are really false and proof that Jesus is not the son of God but only a messenger of God.
