Lesson 1: Peter asleep

Readings: Matthew 26: 36-46

Lesson 2: Peter fighting

Readings: Matthew 26: 47-56

Peter had let the Lord Jesus down by sleeping when he had been asked to pray. Judas, however, had done even worse. He promised to tell Jesus’ enemies where Jesus was, if they would pay him some money. We call this ‘betraying’. Judas betrayed Jesus that night by leading a gang of men through the darkness to capture Jesus.

Readings: Matthew 26: 69-75

Lesson 4: Peter loves

Readings: John 21: 1-19

The Lord Jesus had died on the cross. His body had been put in a tomb or cave. On Easter Sunday morning He had come ALIVE! Some of His disciples had seen Him that day!
