Peter's Denial

Sermon Text: John 18:15-27

Dr. Sproul starts this section by discussing betrayal and includes Peter in that category and then continues by detailing Peter's changing devotion to Jesus. As he continues with the passage Dr. Sproul relates that he believes the unnamed disciple who is able to get Peter admitted to the high priest's courtyard is John and this admittance brings about Peter's first denial of Jesus. Jesus undergoes his illegal trial with Annas and is then sent on to Caiaphas and Peter warming himself by the courtyard fire denies Jesus two more times. Dr. Sproul discusses Peter's failure to keep his allegiance oath of laying down his life for Jesus sake in 13:37b.
