Before Balboa…..there was simply…..the “Rock”…..to whom Jesus would build his church

This week, we tackle our first apostle:  Peter.

Many of you already know much about “Peter”….but what do we know about “Simon”?   Simon, according to some scholars was anything but a leader of the church.  Yet, Jesus knew that Simon had potential.  He changed his name to Peter….”Petros” in Greek which translated means “a piece of rock, a stone”.

Peter is always mentioned as the leader of the apostles but you might not know that he was actually selected third when Jesus was walking around with His “follow me” invites!   Homework this week is to concentrate primarily on Chapter 2 of our study.  Supplement your reading with the corresponding workbook sections for Peter as time permits.  Our “rock” this Friday will be Rob Miller, as he introduces Peter to our fellowship.

 

And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon!  Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.  But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”  LUKE 22:31-32

See you this Friday!  Gather starting at 7:30 am.  Rob will begin the lesson at 7:45 am.

Peace!
