Jesus Denied

March 27, 2022

Bible Text: Mark 14: 66-72 |


As we continue in our journey with Jesus to the hill of Golgotha, Mark puts Simon Peter front and center, just long enough to record Peter’s three-fold denial of even knowing Christ. In the middle of all the physical pain Jesus had already endured, that pain was nothing like the pain of this moment. Luke’s gospel adds to what Mark records with this: “Peter replied, ‘Man, I don’t know what you are talking about!’ Just as he was speaking the rooster crowed. The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: ‘Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.’ And he went out and wept bitterly.” (Luke 22:60-62)
