While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.
Matthew 4:19 ESV
And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Matthew 14:28 ESV
And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
Matthew 14:29 ESV
He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.
Matthew 14:30 ESV
But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”
Matthew 14:31 ESV
Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Matthew 14:32 ESV
And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
Matthew 15:15 ESV
But Peter said to him, “Explain the parable to us.”
Matthew 16:16 ESV
Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Matthew 16:17 ESV
And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 16:18 ESV
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Matthew 16:19 ESV
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:22 ESV
And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”
Matthew 16:23 ESV
But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”
Matthew 17:1 ESV
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
Matthew 17:2 ESV
And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.
Matthew 17:4 ESV
And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
Matthew 17:5 ESV
He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”
Matthew 17:6 ESV
When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified.
Matthew 17:7 ESV
But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.”
Matthew 17:8 ESV
And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.
Matthew 17:9 ESV
And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.”
Matthew 17:10 ESV
And the disciples asked him, “Then why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?”
Matthew 17:12 ESV
But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man will certainly suffer at their hands.”
Matthew 17:13 ESV
Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.
Matthew 17:24 ESV
When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma tax went up to Peter and said, “Does your teacher not pay the tax?”
Matthew 17:25 ESV
He said, “Yes.” And when he came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tax? From their sons or from others?”
Matthew 17:26 ESV
And when he said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free.
Matthew 17:27 ESV
However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for me and for yourself.”
Matthew 18:13 ESV
And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray.
Matthew 18:16 ESV
But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.
Matthew 18:21 ESV
Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”
Matthew 18:22 ESV
Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 19:27 ESV
Then Peter said in reply, “See, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?”
Matthew 26:33 ESV
Peter answered him, “Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away.”
Matthew 26:34 ESV
Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.”
Matthew 26:35 ESV
Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you!” And all the disciples said the same.
Matthew 26:37 ESV
And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled.
Matthew 26:38 ESV
Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.”
Matthew 26:40 ESV
And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour?
Matthew 26:41 ESV
Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Matthew 26:58 ESV
And Peter was following him at a distance, as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end.
Matthew 26:69 ESV
Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. And a servant girl came up to him and said, “You also were with Jesus the Galilean.”
Matthew 26:70 ESV
But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you mean.”
Matthew 26:71 ESV
And when he went out to the entrance, another servant girl saw him, and she said to the bystanders, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.”
Matthew 26:72 ESV
And again he denied it with an oath: “I do not know the man.”
Matthew 26:73 ESV
After a little while the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Certainly you too are one of them, for your accent betrays you.”
Matthew 26:74 ESV
Then he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know the man.” And immediately the rooster crowed.
Matthew 26:75 ESV
And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.
Mark 1:16 ESV
Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.
Mark 1:17 ESV
And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”
Mark 1:18 ESV
And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
Mark 1:21 ESV
And they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and was teaching.
Mark 1:29 ESV
And immediately he left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
Mark 1:30 ESV
Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him about her.
Mark 1:31 ESV
And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them.
Mark 1:36 ESV
And Simon and those who were with him searched for him,
Mark 1:37 ESV
and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.”
Mark 1:38 ESV
And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.”
Mark 3:16 ESV
He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);
Mark 5:37 ESV
And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.
Mark 5:38 ESV
They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly.
Mark 5:40 ESV
And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was.
Mark 5:42 ESV
And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement.
Mark 8:29 ESV
And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”
Mark 8:32 ESV
And he said this plainly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
Mark 8:33 ESV
But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”
Mark 9:2 ESV
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them,
Mark 9:4 ESV
And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
Mark 9:5 ESV
And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
Mark 9:6 ESV
For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified.
Mark 9:7 ESV
And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.”
Mark 9:8 ESV
And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.
Mark 9:9 ESV
And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
Mark 9:10 ESV
So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead might mean.
Mark 9:11 ESV
And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?”
Mark 9:12 ESV
And he said to them, “Elijah does come first to restore all things. And how is it written of the Son of Man that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt?
Mark 9:13 ESV
But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.”
Mark 9:14 ESV
And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them.
Mark 10:28 ESV
Peter began to say to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you.”
Mark 11:21 ESV
And Peter remembered and said to him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered.”
Mark 13:3 ESV
And as he sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
Mark 13:4 ESV
“Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?”
Mark 13:5 ESV
And Jesus began to say to them, “See that no one leads you astray.
Mark 13:7 ESV
And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet.
Mark 13:9 ESV
“But be on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten in synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them.
Mark 13:11 ESV
And when they bring you to trial and deliver you over, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
Mark 13:13 ESV
And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
Mark 13:14 ESV
“But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not to be (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
Mark 13:18 ESV
Pray that it may not happen in winter.
Mark 13:21 ESV
And then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it.
Mark 13:23 ESV
But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand.
Mark 13:28 ESV
“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near.
Mark 13:29 ESV
So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
Mark 13:30 ESV
Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.
Mark 13:33 ESV
Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come.
Mark 13:35 ESV
Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning—
Mark 13:36 ESV
lest he come suddenly and find you asleep.
Mark 13:37 ESV
And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”
Mark 14:29 ESV
Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.”
Mark 14:30 ESV
And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.”
Mark 14:31 ESV
But he said emphatically, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same.
Mark 14:33 ESV
And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled.
Mark 14:34 ESV
And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch.”
Mark 14:37 ESV
And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour?
Mark 14:38 ESV
Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Mark 14:40 ESV
And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy, and they did not know what to answer him.
Mark 14:41 ESV
And he came the third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough; the hour has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Mark 14:42 ESV
Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”
Mark 14:54 ESV
And Peter had followed him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest. And he was sitting with the guards and warming himself at the fire.
Mark 14:66 ESV
And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came,
Mark 14:67 ESV
and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus.”
Mark 14:68 ESV
But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you mean.” And he went out into the gateway and the rooster crowed.
Mark 14:69 ESV
And the servant girl saw him and began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.”
Mark 14:70 ESV
But again he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders again said to Peter, “Certainly you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.”
Mark 14:71 ESV
But he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know this man of whom you speak.”
Mark 14:72 ESV
And immediately the rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had said to him, “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
Mark 16:7 ESV
But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.”
Mark 16:8 ESV
And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Luke 4:38 ESV
And he arose and left the synagogue and entered Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they appealed to him on her behalf.
Luke 5:3 ESV
Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
Luke 5:4 ESV
And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
Luke 5:5 ESV
And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.”
Luke 5:6 ESV
And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking.
Luke 5:7 ESV
They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
Luke 5:8 ESV
But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.”
Luke 5:9 ESV
For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken,
Luke 5:10 ESV
and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”
Luke 5:11 ESV
And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.
Luke 6:14 ESV
Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew,
Luke 8:45 ESV
And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!”
Luke 8:51 ESV
And when he came to the house, he allowed no one to enter with him, except Peter and John and James, and the father and mother of the child.
Luke 9:20 ESV
Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”
Luke 9:28 ESV
Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
Luke 9:32 ESV
Now Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep, but when they became fully awake they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him.
Luke 9:33 ESV
And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah”—not knowing what he said.
Luke 9:34 ESV
As he was saying these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
Luke 9:35 ESV
And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!”
Luke 9:36 ESV
And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
Luke 9:37 ESV
On the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great crowd met him.
Luke 12:41 ESV
Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?”
Luke 18:28 ESV
And Peter said, “See, we have left our homes and followed you.”
Luke 22:8 ESV
So Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it.”
Luke 22:9 ESV
They said to him, “Where will you have us prepare it?”
Luke 22:10 ESV
He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he enters
Luke 22:11 ESV
and tell the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’
Luke 22:12 ESV
And he will show you a large upper room furnished; prepare it there.”
Luke 22:13 ESV
And they went and found it just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.
Luke 22:31 ESV
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat,
Luke 22:32 ESV
but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
Luke 22:33 ESV
Peter said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death.”
Luke 22:34 ESV
Jesus said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.”
Luke 22:54 ESV
Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance.
Luke 22:55 ESV
And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them.
Luke 22:56 ESV
Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.”
Luke 22:57 ESV
But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.”
Luke 22:58 ESV
And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.”
Luke 22:59 ESV
And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.”
Luke 22:60 ESV
But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.
Luke 22:61 ESV
And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.”
Luke 22:62 ESV
And he went out and wept bitterly.
Luke 24:12 ESV
But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
Luke 24:34 ESV
saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!”
John 1:40 ESV
One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
John 1:41 ESV
He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ).
John 1:42 ESV
He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter).
John 1:44 ESV
Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
John 6:8 ESV
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him,
John 6:68 ESV
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life,
John 13:6 ESV
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?”
John 13:7 ESV
Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.”
John 13:8 ESV
Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.”
John 13:9 ESV
Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!”
John 13:10 ESV
Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.”
John 13:24 ESV
so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus of whom he was speaking.
John 13:36 ESV
Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus answered him, “Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterward.”
John 13:37 ESV
Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”
John 13:38 ESV
Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times.
John 18:10 ESV
Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear. (The servant’s name was Malchus.)
John 18:11 ESV
So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?”
John 18:15 ESV
Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Since that disciple was known to the high priest, he entered with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest,
John 18:16 ESV
but Peter stood outside at the door. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the servant girl who kept watch at the door, and brought Peter in.
John 18:17 ESV
The servant girl at the door said to Peter, “You also are not one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.”
John 18:18 ESV
Now the servants and officers had made a charcoal fire, because it was cold, and they were standing and warming themselves. Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.
John 18:25 ESV
Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. So they said to him, “You also are not one of his disciples, are you?” He denied it and said, “I am not.”
John 18:26 ESV
One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, asked, “Did I not see you in the garden with him?”
John 18:27 ESV
Peter again denied it, and at once a rooster crowed.
John 20:2 ESV
So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”
John 20:3 ESV
So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb.
John 20:4 ESV
Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.
John 20:6 ESV
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there,
John 20:9 ESV
for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
John 21:2 ESV
Simon Peter, Thomas (called the Twin), Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together.
John 21:3 ESV
Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
John 21:7 ESV
That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the sea.
John 21:11 ESV
So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn.
John 21:15 ESV
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, “Feed my lambs.”
John 21:16 ESV
He said to him 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, “Tend my sheep.”
John 21:17 ESV
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 everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
John 21:18 ESV
Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.”
John 21:19 ESV
(This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”
John 21:20 ESV
Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned back against him during the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?”
John 21:21 ESV
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?”
John 21:22 ESV
Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!”
John 21:23 ESV
So the saying spread abroad among the brothers that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?”
Acts 1:13 ESV
And when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas the son of James.
Acts 1:15 ESV
In those days Peter stood up among the brothers (the company of persons was in all about 120) and said,
Acts 2:14 ESV
But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words.
Acts 2:29 ESV
“Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
Acts 2:37 ESV
Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
Acts 2:38 ESV
And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:40 ESV
And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”
Acts 2:41 ESV
So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.
Acts 3:1 ESV
Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
Acts 3:3 ESV
Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms.
Acts 3:4 ESV
And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.”
Acts 3:5 ESV
And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them.
Acts 3:6 ESV
But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”
Acts 3:7 ESV
And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong.
Acts 3:8 ESV
And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.
Acts 3:11 ESV
While he clung to Peter and John, all the people, utterly astounded, ran together to them in the portico called Solomon’s.
Acts 3:12 ESV
And when Peter saw it he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we have made him walk?
Acts 3:13 ESV
The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him.
Acts 3:15 ESV
and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.
Acts 3:17 ESV
“And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.
Acts 4:1 ESV
And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them,
Acts 4:2 ESV
greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
Acts 4:3 ESV
And they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening.
Acts 4:7 ESV
And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, “By what power or by what name did you do this?”
Acts 4:8 ESV
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders,
Acts 4:9 ESV
if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed,
Acts 4:13 ESV
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
Acts 4:14 ESV
But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition.
Acts 4:15 ESV
But when they had commanded them to leave the council, they conferred with one another,
Acts 4:16 ESV
saying, “What shall we do with these men? For that a notable sign has been performed through them is evident to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.
Acts 4:17 ESV
But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name.”
Acts 4:18 ESV
So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
Acts 4:19 ESV
But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge,
Acts 4:20 ESV
for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.”
Acts 4:21 ESV
And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people, for all were praising God for what had happened.
Acts 4:23 ESV
When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them.
Acts 5:3 ESV
But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land?
Acts 5:8 ESV
And Peter said to her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much.” And she said, “Yes, for so much.”
Acts 5:9 ESV
But Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.”
Acts 5:10 ESV
Immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. When the young men came in they found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.
Acts 5:15 ESV
so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them.
Acts 5:29 ESV
But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.
Acts 8:14 ESV
Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John,
Acts 8:15 ESV
who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit,
Acts 8:17 ESV
Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:18 ESV
Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money,
Acts 8:19 ESV
saying, “Give me this power also, so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 8:20 ESV
But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!
Acts 8:23 ESV
For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.”
Acts 8:24 ESV
And Simon answered, “Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may come upon me.”
Acts 8:25 ESV
Now when they had testified and spoken the word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans.
Acts 9:32 ESV
Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda.
Acts 9:33 ESV
There he found a man named Aeneas, bedridden for eight years, who was paralyzed.
Acts 9:34 ESV
And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed.” And immediately he rose.
Acts 9:38 ESV
Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him, urging him, “Please come to us without delay.”
Acts 9:39 ESV
So Peter rose and went with them. And when he arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping and showing tunics and other garments that Dorcas made while she was with them.
Acts 9:40 ESV
But Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.
Acts 9:41 ESV
And he gave her his hand and raised her up. Then, calling the saints and widows, he presented her alive.
Acts 9:43 ESV
And he stayed in Joppa for many days with one Simon, a tanner.
Acts 10:5 ESV
And now send men to Joppa and bring one Simon who is called Peter.
Acts 10:6 ESV
He is lodging with one Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea.”
Acts 10:9 ESV
The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray.
Acts 10:10 ESV
And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance
Acts 10:11 ESV
and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth.
Acts 10:13 ESV
And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.”
Acts 10:14 ESV
But Peter said, “By no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.”
Acts 10:15 ESV
And the voice came to him again a second time, “What God has made clean, do not call common.”
Acts 10:17 ESV
Now while Peter was inwardly perplexed as to what the vision that he had seen might mean, behold, the men who were sent by Cornelius, having made inquiry for Simon’s house, stood at the gate
Acts 10:18 ESV
and called out to ask whether Simon who was called Peter was lodging there.
Acts 10:19 ESV
And while Peter was pondering the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Behold, three men are looking for you.
Acts 10:20 ESV
Rise and go down and accompany them without hesitation, for I have sent them.”
Acts 10:21 ESV
And Peter went down to the men and said, “I am the one you are looking for. What is the reason for your coming?”
Acts 10:22 ESV
And they said, “Cornelius, a centurion, an upright and God-fearing man, who is well spoken of by the whole Jewish nation, was directed by a holy angel to send for you to come to his house and to hear what you have to say.”
Acts 10:23 ESV
So he invited them in to be his guests. The next day he rose and went away with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him.
Acts 10:24 ESV
And on the following day they entered Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends.
Acts 10:25 ESV
When Peter entered, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him.
Acts 10:26 ESV
But Peter lifted him up, saying, “Stand up; I too am a man.”
Acts 10:27 ESV
And as he talked with him, he went in and found many persons gathered.
Acts 10:28 ESV
And he said to them, “You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or to visit anyone of another nation, but God has shown me that I should not call any person common or unclean.
Acts 10:29 ESV
So when I was sent for, I came without objection. I ask then why you sent for me.”
Acts 10:32 ESV
Send therefore to Joppa and ask for Simon who is called Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea.’
Acts 10:33 ESV
So I sent for you at once, and you have been kind enough to come. Now therefore we are all here in the presence of God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord.”
Acts 10:34 ESV
So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality,
Acts 10:39 ESV
And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree,
Acts 10:44 ESV
While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word.
Acts 10:45 ESV
And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles.
Acts 10:46 ESV
For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared,
Acts 10:48 ESV
And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days.
Acts 11:2 ESV
So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcision party criticized him, saying,
Acts 11:3 ESV
“You went to uncircumcised men and ate with them.”
Acts 11:4 ESV
But Peter began and explained it to them in order:
Acts 11:5 ESV
“I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision, something like a great sheet descending, being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came down to me.
Acts 11:6 ESV
Looking at it closely, I observed animals and beasts of prey and reptiles and birds of the air.
Acts 11:7 ESV
And I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Rise, Peter; kill and eat.’
Acts 11:8 ESV
But I said, ‘By no means, Lord; for nothing common or unclean has ever entered my mouth.’
Acts 11:9 ESV
But the voice answered a second time from heaven, ‘What God has made clean, do not call common.’
Acts 11:11 ESV
And behold, at that very moment three men arrived at the house in which we were, sent to me from Caesarea.
Acts 11:12 ESV
And the Spirit told me to go with them, making no distinction. These six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered the man’s house.
Acts 11:13 ESV
And he told us how he had seen the angel stand in his house and say, ‘Send to Joppa and bring Simon who is called Peter;
Acts 11:14 ESV
he will declare to you a message by which you will be saved, you and all your household.’
Acts 11:15 ESV
As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as on us at the beginning.
Acts 11:16 ESV
And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he said, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’
Acts 11:17 ESV
If then God gave the same gift to them as he gave to us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God’s way?”
Acts 12:3 ESV
and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread.
Acts 12:4 ESV
And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.
Acts 12:5 ESV
So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.
Acts 12:6 ESV
Now when Herod was about to bring him out, on that very night, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison.
Acts 12:7 ESV
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And the chains fell off his hands.
Acts 12:8 ESV
And the angel said to him, “Dress yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.”
Acts 12:9 ESV
And he went out and followed him. He did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.
Acts 12:10 ESV
When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened for them of its own accord, and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel left him.
Acts 12:11 ESV
When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I am sure that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.”
Acts 12:12 ESV
When he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose other name was Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying.
Acts 12:13 ESV
And when he knocked at the door of the gateway, a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer.
Acts 12:14 ESV
Recognizing Peter’s voice, in her joy she did not open the gate but ran in and reported that Peter was standing at the gate.
Acts 12:15 ESV
They said to her, “You are out of your mind.” But she kept insisting that it was so, and they kept saying, “It is his angel!”
Acts 12:16 ESV
But Peter continued knocking, and when they opened, they saw him and were amazed.
Acts 12:17 ESV
But motioning to them with his hand to be silent, he described to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, “Tell these things to James and to the brothers.” Then he departed and went to another place.
Acts 12:18 ESV
Now when day came, there was no little disturbance among the soldiers over what had become of Peter.
Acts 12:19 ESV
And after Herod searched for him and did not find him, he examined the sentries and ordered that they should be put to death. Then he went down from Judea to Caesarea and spent time there.
Acts 15:7 ESV
And after there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.
Acts 15:14 ESV
Simeon has related how God first visited the Gentiles, to take from them a people for his name.
1 Corinthians 1:12 ESV
What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.”
1 Corinthians 3:22 ESV
whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours,
1 Corinthians 9:5 ESV
Do we not have the right to take along a believing wife, as do the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?
1 Corinthians 15:5 ESV
and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
Galatians 1:18 ESV
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas and remained with him fifteen days.
Galatians 2:7 ESV
On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised
Galatians 2:8 ESV
(for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles),
Galatians 2:9 ESV
and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.
Galatians 2:11 ESV
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.
Galatians 2:12 ESV
For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party.
Galatians 2:13 ESV
And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy.
Galatians 2:14 ESV
But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
Galatians 2:15 ESV
We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners;
1 Peter 1:1 ESV
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
1 Peter 1:3 ESV
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 2:11 ESV
Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
1 Peter 2:24 ESV
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
1 Peter 4:17 ESV
For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
1 Peter 5:1 ESV
So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed:
1 Peter 5:12 ESV
By Silvanus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it.
1 Peter 5:13 ESV
She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings, and so does Mark, my son.

2 Peter 1:2 ESV
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 1:3 ESV
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
2 Peter 1:4 ESV
by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
2 Peter 1:8 ESV
For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:11 ESV
For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:12 ESV
Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have.
2 Peter 1:13 ESV
I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder,
2 Peter 1:14 ESV
since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me.
2 Peter 1:15 ESV
And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.
2 Peter 1:16 ESV
For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
2 Peter 1:18 ESV
we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.
2 Peter 1:19 ESV
And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,
2 Peter 3:1 ESV
This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder,
2 Peter 3:13 ESV
But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
2 Peter 3:15 ESV
And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,
2 Peter 3:18 ESV
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
