Jesus & Peter – Important Things To Know To Build Great Relationships
Mark 1:16-18 NLT
One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. (17) Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” (18) And they left their nets at once and followed him.
Matthew 16:13-16 ERV
Jesus went to the area of Caesarea Philippi. He said to his followers, “Who do people say I am?” (14) They answered, “Some people say you are John the Baptizer. Others say you are Elijah. And some say you are Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” (15) Then Jesus said to his followers, “And who do you say I am?” (16) Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Luke 5:4-6 NLT
When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” (5) “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” (6) And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear!
Matthew 8:14-16 NLT
When Jesus arrived at Peter’s house, Peter’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. (15) But when Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her. Then she got up and prepared a meal for him. (16) That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. He cast out the evil spirits with a simple command, and he healed all the sick.
The Way Jesus Loves
Matthew 26:31-35 NLT
On the way, Jesus told them, “Tonight all of you will desert me. For the Scriptures say, ‘God will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ (32) But after I have been raised from the dead, I will go ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there.” (33) Peter declared, “Even if everyone else deserts you, I will never desert you.” (34) Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, Peter—this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.” (35) “No!” Peter insisted. “Even if I have to die with you, I will never deny you!” And all the other disciples vowed the same.
Luke 22:54-62 NLT
So they arrested him and led him to the high priest’s home. And Peter followed at a distance. (55) The guards lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat around it, and Peter joined them there. (56) A servant girl noticed him in the firelight and began staring at him. Finally she said, “This man was one of Jesus’ followers!” (57) But Peter denied it. “Woman,” he said, “I don’t even know him!” (58) After a while someone else looked at him and said, “You must be one of them!” “No, man, I’m not!” Peter retorted. (59) About an hour later someone else insisted, “This must be one of them, because he is a Galilean, too.” (60) But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. (61) At that moment the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Suddenly, the Lord’s words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me.” (62) And Peter left the courtyard, weeping bitterly.
John 21:15-18 NLT
After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. (16) Jesus repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “you know I love you.” “Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. (17) A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep. (18) “I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.”
