Luke 22:54-62, Denial!

In the sermon text for this Lord’s Day (Luke 22:54-62), Luke shifts the focus of the story from Jesus to Peter. The one disciple who declared his undying allegiance to Jesus and who was ready to defend Jesus with his life now cowers in fear while Jesus is interrogated and sorely abused. As Jesus foretold, Peter denied his Master three times before the night was over. But Jesus was not through with Peter; he had work for the apostle to do after he repented.
