Matthew: Week 52
1.Read Jesus' experience before Caiaphas in Matthew 26:57-68 and Peter's experience outside in the courtyard in Matthew 26:69-75. What do they have in common? How are they different?
2.Now compare Jesus and Peter through Matthew 26:36-56. Make as many observations as you can about how they responded to the circumstances around them. What did they have in common and how were they different?
3.Consider your own perspective about what constitutes a godly response to trial and opportunity. Honestly appraise whether your perspective is closer to that of Jesus or that of Peter? What changes would you like to make in the way you think and how do you intend to pursue that sort of change?
