Jesus' Encounter with Peter
Jesus' Encounter with Peter
John 21:15-23
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  November 26, 2017

To fully understand Peter's restoration, we need to understand Peter's fall. Peter was self-confident and had repeatedly asserted that he was ready to follow Jesus even to death. He even asserted that although everyone should abandon Jesus, he would never do so. And yet, just as Jesus prophesied, Peter denied the Lord three times. The event devastated Peter and left him weeping bitterly. Jesus encounter with Peter in John 21 re-established his love relationship with him but also prepares Peter for a life of service and sacrifice.
