“… I don’t know what you’re talking about …” (Matt. 26:70).
Nothing hurts quite like the betrayal of someone you love and trust?
But what if you were the one who had betrayed your closest friend? You turned your back on him in his darkest hour of need.
Jesus had a friend like that–Peter.
I grieved with Peter as I read the account of his betrayal of Jesus? (Matt. 26:69-75) I wondered, Would I betray my closest friend if I thought my life was at risk? What guilt! Would he ever forgive me?
Mindy Ferguson addresses even more of my questions about Peter’s life and his relationship with Jesus in her new Bible study. Eyewitness to Majesty: Abandoning Self for Christ – Peter.
Through the Eyewitness to Majesty Bible study, we walk along with Peter as an eyewitness to the life of Christ. I found the Apostle Peter’s story and perspective encouraging. The former-fisherman and zealous follower of Jesus is mentioned more times in the four gospels than anyone other than Jesus himself. Peter was praised more than any other disciple. He was also rebuked more than any other disciple. His imperfections make him lovable and his victories give us hope. The apostle Peter’s relationship with Jesus reminds us that we serve a merciful, loving God who uses imperfect vessels to accomplish His divine tasks. (Mindy Ferguson)
