SUMMARY OF MATTHEW 26:31-35
Jesus says that they will all fall away (desert him) because of him (who he is) this very night. But after he has risen, he will go ahead of them to Galilee. Peter says he never will, which is when Jesus says he will deny him 3 times before the rooster crows. Peter says no, as do the other disciples.

9a) Peter tells Jesus he won’t fall away.
b) They are all in denial. It’s ironic how they know it will happen, but they do it anyway.
c) I don’t overestimate my own strength because I know I can’t do anything without God, His strength, and His power.

I love how the rooster crows! We now own chickens, and we have one rooster. Although I have to say, he never stops crowing except at night.

End Notes BSF Study Questions Matthew Lesson 26, Day 4: Matthew 26:31-35
Jesus tells the disciples they will desert him in order to show them that Scripture must be fulfilled. Peter, like most of us, is in denial of wrongdoings and reliant on his own strength rather than God’s. Peter would falter, but Christ never does.
Peter was smug and self-assured. He will soon be humbled beyond belief. I’d be embarrassed and feel extremely guilty. This would definitely be hard to forgive myself for this one.
