Background and Family Life

He lived in Capernaum

; He originally came from Bethsaida.

He was a fisherman by trade

Luke 5:10 NASB95
and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not fear, from now on you will be catching men.”

Peter Called to be Christ’s Disciple

He was called by Jesus Christ

; ;

He witnessed Jesus Christ perform many miracles

; ; ;

He was chosen to be with Jesus Christ on certain occasions

at the transfiguration of Jesus Christ; in the Garden of Gethsemane;

He sometimes acted as spokesman for the other disciples

He asked Jesus Christ to teach them:

;

He confessed Jesus as Messiah and Son of God:

;
He asked Jesus Christ to prolong the transfiguration experience; ; ; ;

His impetuous nature interacted with his devotion to Jesus Christ

He wanted to walk to Jesus Christ on the water; He tried to prevent Jesus Christ from going to his death; He vowed that he was willing to die for Jesus Christ; ;

He was the subject of both special commendation and rebuke

He was commended for his confession of faith in Jesus Christ; He was rebuked for his opposition to Jesus Christ’s prediction of his suffering; He was warned that he would disown Jesus Christ; He was rebuked for falling asleep in the Garden of Gethsemane; ;

Peter’s Denial and Jesus’ Restoration

He denied that he knew Jesus Christ

Matthew 26:69–74 NASB95
Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.” But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” And again he denied it with an oath, “I do not know the man.” A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Surely you too are one of them; for even the way you talk gives you away.” Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed.

He repented of his denial

Matthew 26:75 NASB95
And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.

The risen Christ appeared to him on his own

;

He was reinstated by Jesus Christ in front of other disciples

John 21:15–17 NASB95
So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.
