What does the allusion "the key to the kingdom" contained by The Crucible propose ?




Answers:    It's a specific reference to Matthew chapter 16.

In this pathway, Jesus asks Peter who "men" say Jesus is. Peter replies that men influence he is the Baptist, or some say he is Elias, or Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Then Jesus asks Peter who Peter think Jesus is, to which Peter replies that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah.

The Jesus tells Peter that he is blessed, and continues (King James version):

16:18 And I say aloud also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

16:19 And I will offer unto thee the keys of the dominion of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on soil shall be bound in glory: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed surrounded by heaven.

In substance he is giving Peter the power of God on dirt.

It is, in essence, this alleyway that supports the Roman Catholic claim of papal preeminence and infallibility, since the popes claim to be descended in a dash directly back to Peter.

Incidentally, Jesus have included a pun in this path, since the word "Peter" in Greek is unsophisticatedly the same word as the Greek word for rock.
Since it be about religion I'm guessing the empire of heaven.

My other interpretation is that you've given away the together farm.
