C+ Disciples

The Disciple of Jesus that is often regarded as the number one Disciple is Simon Peter and yet on the night when Jesus was betrayed by Judas Peter denied knowing Jesus not once but three times. He and the other disciples seemed to have a difficult time grasping the message Jesus was teaching. Sometimes they seemed to understand and then it was like they missed a day of classes and failed the test/ 

Peter gives me a lot of comfort. He was a C+ student of the Rabbi Jesus and yet he has a place of honor. We see him with all his questions, weaknesses and foibles and he was just like us.

So there is hope for you and I as well.
