BETRAYAL

Bible betrayals:

Isaac betrayed by Jacob, Samson betrayed by Delilah, Uriah betrayed by David, David betrayed by Ahithophel, Judas betrayed Jesus, Peter betrayed Jesus.

When David was betrayed by Ahithophel, he said, “Even my friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me.”

Two close friends, Judas and Peter, betrayed Jesus. Their reactions were opposite. This post will look more closely at Peter.

Ask Peter how he felt about betraying Jesus. When his eyes were opened to what he had done, he went out and wept bitterly. Don’t you think he thought Jesus would never trust him again? That now he was the least of the disciples? He had tried to prove his worth even to cutting off the ear of a Roman soldier. That turned out to be a bummer also. Jesus even had rebuked Satan through him.

How did Jesus react to that? After he arose, he said, ““But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goes before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.” What a precious way to reach out to Peter, the one who denied him.

Do you know Peter used the word “precious” seven times in his epistles? Simon Peter. The stone turned into a Teddy bear. 😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
