Jesus Stories

What Peter Did

Jesus was arrested in the garden.

The soldiers took him away.

Peter followed them.

He followed them far behind.

He didn't want the soldiers to see him.

They took Jesus to the place where they take prisoners.

Peter hid in a safe place.

A girl passing by saw Peter.

She asked Peter, "Aren't you one of Jesus' followers?"

Peter answered, "I don't know what you're talking about."

Someone else asked, "You were with him, weren't you?"

Peter said, "I don't even know the man."

Someone else said, "You sound just like him."

Peter was afraid.

Peter shouted, "I don't know Him!"

Peter heard the rooster crow.

Peter remembered what Jesus had said.

Jesus had told him, "Before the rooster crows you will say, three times, that you don't know me."

This made Peter very sad.

He cried and ran away.

What do you think?

Did you think Peter would do that?

Was it just like Jesus had said?

Write and tell me what you think , BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for giving me a guide to live by.
Thank you for telling me exactly how I should behave.
Help me to behave properly.
Help me to never have to be ashamed.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
