This whole book is about the Good News about Jesus. Remember as we read those inspired words that they are the words written by John Mark recording the experience Peter had walking with Jesus for 3 plus years.
Peter's life is synonymous with the Gospel.
* Peter was called by Jesus to join the Gospel Team of Twelve. * Peter watched Jesus minister the Gospel for over three years. * Peter learned first hand and up close what the Gospel was and what he was to proclaim as Christ's messenger. * Peter learned it, lived it, and preached it.
That total devotion to the Gospel changed his life forever. His world based on the shore line of Galilee was expanded by Jesus to embrace all peoples every where â€“ and through the Gospels, the Book of Acts and I and II Peter all people throughout all of time on Earth. That is why we can say Peter's life was perhaps the greatest life ever lived for the Glory of God.
Powerful Sermon! I never realized how important Peter was as an Apostle and I thank Dr. Barnett for pointing this out. I will always look at the Apostle Peter with a grateful heart and read him more closely and try to be more like him.
Praise God for the Holy Bible.
