SIMON PETER

Simon was a fisherman:

Matthew 4:18
And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

Jesus nicknamed Simon, Peter:

Mark 3:16
And Simon He surnamed Peter ...

Which also means rock (Petros [rock] in Greek). Jesus called Peter to be an Apostle ...

Matthew 4:18-19
And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And He saith unto them,
Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Many are familiar with the story of Jesus walking on water where Peter walked on water for a moment, but began to sink when his faith weakened.

Matthew 14:29-31
And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him,
O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

In one conversation between Jesus and His disciples, Jesus asks, "Who do people say that I am?" The disciples give several answers, but when He asks, "Who do you say that I am?"

Matthew 16:16
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Jesus then says that Peter is blessed because he recognized Jesus' true identity by divine providence and names Peter the "rock" upon which the church would be built and the key holder to the kingdom of heaven.

To give you an idea of how human Simon Peter was (just like us), shortly after this honor was bestowed upon him by Jesus, he rebukes the Lord.

Matthew 16:21-23
From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
But He turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Just as in our own lives, we say things we don't mean, but rather it is Satan speaking through us. Jesus wasn't calling Peter the devil, He was addressing the spirit of Satan who influenced Peter to challenge the TRUTH that Jesus was telling them.

Jesus washed His Apostles' feet at the beginning of the Last Supper. At first, Peter refused to let Jesus wash his feet, but when Jesus said:

John 13:8-9
If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

Also during the Last Supper, Jesus was speaking of His destiny and Peter refused to accept the TRUTH.

Mark 14:27-30
And Jesus saith unto them,
All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.

This indeed came to pass. We all unintentionally hurt the ones we love. At the arrest of Jesus, Peter cut off the ear of the servant of the high priest.

Luke 22:51
And Jesus answered and said,
Suffer ye thus far. (Perhaps this means, excuse Peter) And He touched his ear, and healed him.

Though the women were the first to report the empty tomb, Peter was the first to go check it out for himself. He actually runs to the tomb, and John follows him and outruns him to the tomb site. Peter goes in and sees the grave clothes that Jesus was buried in.

In the last chapter of the Gospel according to John, after the resurrection of Jesus, Peter affirms his love for Jesus three times, reconciling his three denials of the Lord.

John 21:15-17
So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

After Jesus ascended, Peter had the foremost role in the foundation of the early church, gave a moving speech during Pentecost, he also lead in the selection of an apostle to replace Judas Iscariot, twice was arrested with John before the high priests of Israel, and defied them, took missionary journeys, and was rescued from prison by an angel, to name a few events of his service.

Paul relates to us that Peter had the special charge of being Apostle to the Jews, just as he, Paul, was Apostle to the Gentiles.

These are just a few reflections about Simon Peter, who also wrote two epistles of the New Testament.
