Peter says he does not know Jesus

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from Luke's Good News

The guards took Jesus to the Leader's house.

Jesus' friend Peter followed them.

He stayed at the back of the crowd.

He waited in the yard to see what would happen.

A fire was lit so he sat beside it.

A servant girl saw Peter.

"This man was with Jesus", she said.

Peter said, "I do not know him."

Later someone else said,

"You are one of them."

"Man, I am not", replied Peter.

About an hour later another man said,

"Certainly this man was with Jesus."

Peter said, "I don't know what you are talking about."

As he was speaking, he heard a cock crowing.

Jesus turned and looked straight at Peter.

Peter remembered what Jesus had said to him.

"In the morning before the cock crows you will say

three times that you do not know me."



Peter went outside and wept.



Luke 22:54-62 No. 48.
