JESUS PREDICTS PETER’S DENIAL [MATT.26:31-35; L K. 22:31-34; JOHN13:36-38]
After supper was over, Jesus wanted to prepare them [the disciples] for what was going to happen that very night, but they were slow to understand what he said. Jesus said to them, “All of you will run away and leave me, for the scripture says, “I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.” After I am raised, I will go before you into Galilee.
Peter answered, “I will never leave you, even though all the rest do!”
Jesus said to Peter, “I tell you that before the cock crows twice
Tonight, you will say three times that you do not know me.”
Peter answered, even more strongly, “I will never say that to you or deny you, even if I have to die with you!” and all the other disciples said the same thing.
After the discussion, Jesus went to Gethsemane to pray. He went with Peter, James and John. It was after the prayer that he was arrested and the disciples escaped for their lives, but Peter followed at a distance. Jesus was taken to the High Priest, house, where all the chief priests, the elders and the teachers of the Law were gathering. Peter also followed them to the courtyard of the High Priest’s house; there he sat down with the guards, keeping himself warm by the fire. The chief priests and the whole council tried to find some evidence against Jesus in order to put him to death, but they could not find any.
What does it mean to deny someone?
THE BETRAYAL AND ARREST OF JESUS
Mark 14:27-52, Matt 27:32-52
Jesus Christ went with his disciples to mount olives to pray after the last supper. He went to the garden of Gethsemane with Peter, James and John. He told them to wait while He prayed, after sometime, He came back and met them sleeping, He rebuked them and told them that they cannot even watch with him for one hour.
When he came the third time, He told them it was certain that he would soon be handed over to his detractors. While he was still speaking Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples came in the company of crowd from the chief priest, scribes and elders carrying swords and clubs. He addressed Jesus as master and kissed him. Jesus was arrested and taken away. He did not resist the arrest because he wanted the prophecy to be fulfilled.
Explain the consequences of betrayal
PETER DENIES JESUS [MATT. 26:75, L K. 22:56-62; JOHN 18:15, 25-27]
Peter was still down in the courtyard when one of the High Priest’s servant’s women came by. When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked straight at him and sad, “You, too, were with Jesus of Nazareth.” Peter denied it, “I don’t know I don’t understand what you are talking about”, he answered, and went out into the passage, just then a cock crowed. The servant woman saw him there and began to repeat to the bystanders, “He is one of them!” Peter denied it again. A little while later the by standers accused Peter again, “You can’t deny that you are one of them, because you, too, are from Galilee.” Then Peter said, “I swear that I am telling the truth! May God punish me if I am not! I do not know the man you are talking about!” Just then a cock crowed a second time, and Peter remembered how Jesus had said to him, “Before the cock crows twice, you will say three times that you do not know me.” Peter broke down and repented of his sin, as he cried to God for forgiveness.
