Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”
Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.”
37 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”
38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial
There is something comforting about seeing how slow the disciples were to understand Jesus’ teaching and how reluctant they were to own their brokenness. If Jesus could care for such as these, then there is hope for frail and faulty people such as we. Jesus is a patient teacher, and a most wonderful and merciful Savior. As in Peter’s life, Jesus not only foresees our betrayals; he also foresees our restoration.
