Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

Matthew 26:30–35

In the second volume of his commentary on Matthew, James Boice says that today’s passage is encouraging because it affirms that Christianity is for weak people (p. 563). Zechariah 13 says that though believers may sinfully abandon their master, He will not abandon them and will present them as a holy people to His Father. If you have sinned this day, it is not too late to seek God’s favor. Repent and return to Him and in so doing prove that you are one of His sheep.
