Jesus: I have a question for the 12 of you, and, Peter, shameful. Why are you humming, I’m number one? When I send you out where are you not to go? The Gentiles, which I’d like to talk to you after  class. NO GENTILES PETER. CASE CLOSED!

  1. The Apostles, including Paul, were debating what the Gentiles must do to become Christians. Exercising his Christ-given authority to decide, to bind and to loose (Matt.16:17-19) “Peter rose and said, “Brothers, you know that at an earlier time God made a choice among you, that by MY mouth the GENTILES should hear the word of the Gospel and believe.” (Acts 15:2-7) Case closed!

  2. Acts 9. Where Peter, whom you say Jesus did not forgive, raised Tabitha from the dead in Jesus’ Name?.. That Acts 9?
    Or how about Acts 10 where God chastises Peter for speaking only to the Jews and then sends him to be the first to speak to the Gentiles..Cornelius and his group? – “Cornelius told us how he had seen an Angel standing in this house and saying, “Send to Joppa and bring Simon called Peter: and he will declare to you a message by which you will be saved, you and all your household.” Acts 10:13-14
    Dave. Peter AND Paul and all the rest of the Apostles eventually spoke to the Gentiles after most of the Jews had rejected Jesus, their prophesied messiah and King.. “First he came unto His own but His own people received Him not. But to ALL who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave the power to become children of God.” (Jn.1:11-12)

  3. Sure there is! – Jesus not only foretold Peter’s sins before he committed them, He forgave Simon/Peter..as he does to ALL of us who repent! The word “repent” means – To turn back.
    And Jesus told Peter what He was to do for his Brother Apostles after he repented..turned back to Christ. – “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, BUT I have prayed for you that your faith may NOT fail; and WHEN you have turned again, strengthen your Brothers.” (lk.22:31-32)

  4. No. Peter was grateful for Jesus forgiveness but asked to be crucified upside down as he did not feel worthy to be crucified as His Lord was.

    But someone who is Anti..Christ would be anti..Christ’s teachings! Like.. “Jesus blest the bread and said, “Take and eat. This IS my body.” So an anti..Christ would say.. “The blest bread is NOT the body of Christ..not true food! Just a symbol.” Jesus knew those anti..Christ teachers would come and so He warned.. “Unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man you will not have life in you. My flesh is TRUE FOOD..” (John 6:53-54)

  5. Peter, whom Jesus prayed for so that Satan would NOT have him (Lk.22:32) asked to be crucified upside down because he did not feel worthy to die as his Savior Jesus Christ had died! That is called..humility..Dave.
    You say Peter did not go to the Gentiles? – “And Peter opened his mouth..” and witnessed to the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and, “While Peter was still saying this the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the Word. And the believers from among the circumcised who came with Peter were amazed because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the GENTILES.” (Acts 10:34-45)
