Jesus, Denied

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 10

Luke 22:54 (ID: 2353)

When all the disciples deserted Jesus and fled, Peter remained at a distance, watching. Earlier, he had told Jesus that he would never desert him—yet when he was questioned under pressure, he denied Him. Alistair Begg points out that Peter’s bitter disappointment under Jesus’ gaze may have been the first time he had seen himself clearly. Having recognized his weakness, he could now be made strong; having faced his sorrow, he could know the joy of forgiveness.
