Denial – Luke 22:54-62

March 26, 2017

We continue our Passion series with a look at Peter’s 3-fold denial of Jesus in Luke 22:54-62. Peter was the leader of the twelve disciples. He was told by Jesus that he would be the rock on whom the church would be built. At dinner with Jesus on Thursday night Peter boldly proclaimed that he would follow Jesus to prison or even death. And yet, by morning he had denied Jesus three times. Peter’s denial continues the quick descent into chaos and darkness. We will take time to look at the whole of Peter’s life and time with Jesus to see what brought this moment to fruition, and why it’s so important.
