Peter Denies Jesus

Matthew 26:36-75
  • Beginning in verse 58, it’s apparent that Peter is close to Jesus during His trial before Caiaphas, witnesses the entire event, and hears the false testimony against Jesus.  Why doesn’t Peter defend Jesus when false accusations are made? Why don’t we defend Jesus when false accusations about Him are made?
  • Peter doesn’t have to be an accuser to harm Jesus.  How can silence cause as much damage as lies?
  • What role does fear play in preventing action? In what way is fear an effective tactic of the Enemy? What practical steps can believers take to combat fear and prevent silence and inaction?
