  • We are starting a brand newseries of messages this week
  • 00:02:16.987 --> 00:02:19.623
  • called Up in Smoke--
  • 00:02:19.757 --> 00:02:22.159
  • that's the title of the series.
  • 00:02:22.259 --> 00:02:23.861
  • They say 2017 was the mostexpensive year in firefighting
  • 00:02:23.961 --> 00:02:30.601
  • history, with over$2 billion spent.
  • 00:02:30.701 --> 00:02:34.972
  • That's an estimated costjust in this country.
  • 00:02:35.105 --> 00:02:37.641
  • That number comes fromthe US Forest Service
  • 00:02:37.775 --> 00:02:40.044
  • on fighting fires.
  • 00:02:40.144 --> 00:02:41.612
  • And they say just in thewestern part of our country,
  • 00:02:41.712 --> 00:02:45.549
  • the part of the countrythat's the best obviously.
  • 00:02:45.649 --> 00:02:50.054
  • Sorry church online audience,I mean, anybody with me--
  • 00:02:50.154 --> 00:02:53.691
  • west coast, west side.
  • 00:02:53.791 --> 00:02:57.494
  • I was doing aninterview this week,
  • 00:02:57.628 --> 00:02:59.230
  • they was like, what do youlike about the east coast?
  • 00:02:59.330 --> 00:03:00.731
  • I was like, coming back home.
  • 00:03:00.831 --> 00:03:01.999
  • That's what I likeabout the east coast.
  • 00:03:02.132 --> 00:03:03.734
  • So all the love for the eastcoast, but West Coast for sure.
  • 00:03:03.834 --> 00:03:08.539
  • On the west coast,there were 50.000 fires.
  • 00:03:08.639 --> 00:03:13.143
  • Over 50.000 fires.
  • 00:03:13.244 --> 00:03:14.712
  • Significant fires in Oregon,significant large devastating
  • 00:03:14.812 --> 00:03:17.681
  • fire in Utah, of course,Texas, California.
  • 00:03:17.815 --> 00:03:21.685
  • But the largest fire on recordlast year, 2017, in the country
  • 00:03:21.819 --> 00:03:25.689
  • was in the state of Montana.
  • 00:03:25.823 --> 00:03:27.691
  • So most of us at Fresh Livelocations and those at church
  • 00:03:27.825 --> 00:03:31.328
  • online who were watching, butthey live in the east coast
  • 00:03:31.428 --> 00:03:33.897
  • so they turned itoff out of hatred.
  • 00:03:33.998 --> 00:03:35.499
  • No, I'm joking.
  • 00:03:35.599 --> 00:03:36.533
  • Hopefully you're still with us.
  • 00:03:36.667 --> 00:03:37.701
  • All the love forthe east coast, OK?
  • 00:03:37.835 --> 00:03:39.937
  • Just in the fight between In andOut and Shake Shack, obviously,
  • 00:03:40.037 --> 00:03:42.873
  • In and Out--
  • 00:03:43.007 --> 00:03:43.574
  • that's all I'm saying.
  • 00:03:43.674 --> 00:03:45.175
  • So they say that the fires havegotten hotter and gotten wilder
  • 00:03:45.276 --> 00:03:51.548
  • and whether thisis global warming
  • 00:03:51.682 --> 00:03:53.083
  • or whatever is causingit, one undeniable fact
  • 00:03:53.183 --> 00:03:55.919
  • is that many of ourlives have been impacted
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:58.022
  • in some way or another by fire,if nothing else, just the smoke
  • 00:03:58.122 --> 00:04:02.693
  • that is at times wherethere's fires going on.
  • 00:04:02.760 --> 00:04:06.530
  • And I kind of got theidea for this series
  • 00:04:06.597 --> 00:04:08.966
  • during a time in thepast couple of years
  • 00:04:09.066 --> 00:04:11.535
  • when there was the kindof smoke everywhere
  • 00:04:11.602 --> 00:04:13.370
  • and you can't ignore it.
  • 00:04:13.437 --> 00:04:14.872
  • And of course, your heart'sgoing out and we as a church
  • 00:04:14.972 --> 00:04:16.640
  • are doing what we can tosupport and help those
  • 00:04:16.740 --> 00:04:18.942
  • when they getafflicted by wildfires
  • 00:04:19.043 --> 00:04:21.578
  • and displaced indifficulty and bring
  • 00:04:21.712 --> 00:04:23.814
  • in aid and in all of that.
  • 00:04:23.914 --> 00:04:26.083
  • But just kind of, whenthere's smoke everywhere,
  • 00:04:26.216 --> 00:04:28.752
  • it just affects everything.
  • 00:04:28.886 --> 00:04:31.388
  • There's times whenit's so smoky aside,
  • 00:04:31.488 --> 00:04:32.990
  • you can't exercise outside,or if you're on a sports team,
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:35.993
  • you can't practice oreven play a game outside.
  • 00:04:36.093 --> 00:04:39.563
  • And so just thinkingabout what an impact
  • 00:04:39.630 --> 00:04:41.098
  • it can have on your life wheneverything goes up in smoke.
  • 00:04:41.231 --> 00:04:45.669
  • And of course, itcan be catastrophic.
  • 00:04:45.769 --> 00:04:48.005
  • Probably one of the mostimpacting movies I've
  • 00:04:48.105 --> 00:04:49.940
  • seen recently was the movie--
  • 00:04:50.074 --> 00:04:51.742
  • Only the Brave.
  • 00:04:51.809 --> 00:04:53.177
  • This brave heroic hotshotcrew and that all but one
  • 00:04:53.277 --> 00:04:58.282
  • lost their livesfighting a fire.
  • 00:04:58.415 --> 00:05:00.317
  • And while we're on thesubject, is anybody else just
  • 00:05:00.417 --> 00:05:02.653
  • so thankful forour firefighters,
  • 00:05:02.753 --> 00:05:04.688
  • our first responders?
  • 00:05:04.788 --> 00:05:06.757
  • I mean, especiallythese hot shot crews.
  • 00:05:06.824 --> 00:05:08.926
  • Come on, let'sthank God for them.
  • 00:05:09.026 --> 00:05:10.861
  • I don't think people likethat get thanked enough.
  • 00:05:10.961 --> 00:05:14.598
  • Paramedics, comeon, police officers,
  • 00:05:14.665 --> 00:05:17.534
  • those who servetheir communities
  • 00:05:17.634 --> 00:05:19.603
  • and make life better inthe city that we live in.
  • 00:05:19.703 --> 00:05:22.106
  • We just believe in thework that you're doing
  • 00:05:22.206 --> 00:05:24.308
  • and we believe that you makelife better, so thank you.
  • 00:05:24.441 --> 00:05:29.146
  • Thank you, thank you forfollowing a passion that God
  • 00:05:29.279 --> 00:05:32.883
  • has put into your heart ingetting into law enforcement
  • 00:05:32.983 --> 00:05:35.219
  • or getting into driving anambulance or being an EMT.
  • 00:05:35.319 --> 00:05:41.291
  • So good.
  • 00:05:41.358 --> 00:05:42.893
  • But what I wasthinking was there
  • 00:05:42.993 --> 00:05:44.628
  • are some amazing smokestories in scripture.
  • 00:05:44.695 --> 00:05:47.197
  • And as I was readingthrough the Bible,
  • 00:05:47.297 --> 00:05:49.032
  • you just kind of withsmoke everywhere,
  • 00:05:49.133 --> 00:05:50.567
  • you couldn't ignore it,you couldn't deny it,
  • 00:05:50.667 --> 00:05:52.403
  • it was everywhere.
  • 00:05:52.503 --> 00:05:53.971
  • I just got to seeing all ofthese powerful stories that
  • 00:05:54.037 --> 00:05:57.641
  • involve smoke in the Bible.
  • 00:05:57.741 --> 00:05:59.543
  • And what I wanted todo was, before we ever
  • 00:05:59.643 --> 00:06:01.812
  • get to the firefightingseason, before we
  • 00:06:01.912 --> 00:06:03.981
  • get to the time of the year whenthere's a kind of smoke hanging
  • 00:06:04.047 --> 00:06:07.017
  • in the air, I wantedto load our hearts up
  • 00:06:07.151 --> 00:06:09.253
  • with some of these smoke storiesif for nothing else, then
  • 00:06:09.353 --> 00:06:12.089
  • we'll be able to believe Godfor power and for something
  • 00:06:12.189 --> 00:06:15.325
  • different when we see smoke.
  • 00:06:15.392 --> 00:06:16.760
  • I was just hoping maybeto get ahead of it
  • 00:06:16.860 --> 00:06:19.997
  • and to change ourassociations with smoke.
  • 00:06:20.063 --> 00:06:23.200
  • Let's see what God can doin smoke filled situations.
  • 00:06:23.333 --> 00:06:27.104
  • And what we'regoing to do is we're
  • 00:06:27.204 --> 00:06:28.672
  • going to start with asmoke story in the Bible
  • 00:06:28.772 --> 00:06:32.176
  • where someone's lifejust fell to pieces.
  • 00:06:32.242 --> 00:06:36.113
  • If anyone's life just went upin smoke right in front of them,
  • 00:06:36.213 --> 00:06:41.351
  • it was the apostle Peter.
  • 00:06:41.418 --> 00:06:42.753
  • And you probably knowa little bit about him,
  • 00:06:42.853 --> 00:06:45.856
  • but we're going to jumparound in some of the gospel
  • 00:06:45.956 --> 00:06:48.892
  • accounts-- three outof the four of them--
  • 00:06:49.026 --> 00:06:50.527
  • to get coverage on kind of onestory, one episode in his life
  • 00:06:50.594 --> 00:06:54.198
  • that happened.
  • 00:06:54.298 --> 00:06:55.365
  • This is literally justone weekend of his life.
  • 00:06:55.432 --> 00:06:56.800
  • And we're going to jump around.
  • 00:06:56.900 --> 00:06:58.068
  • So we're going to reada lot of scripture
  • 00:06:58.202 --> 00:06:59.470
  • and you want to grab thesereferences down, 'cause
  • 00:06:59.570 --> 00:07:01.238
  • we'll be kind of flying fastand you can come back to him.
  • 00:07:01.371 --> 00:07:02.973
  • And you're going tonotice, we're not just
  • 00:07:03.073 --> 00:07:04.775
  • going to stay with one,we're going to jump about.
  • 00:07:04.875 --> 00:07:07.244
  • And that's intentional.
  • 00:07:07.377 --> 00:07:08.579
  • And the reason we'regoing to do that
  • 00:07:08.712 --> 00:07:10.047
  • is because, what you findin the four gospels--
  • 00:07:10.113 --> 00:07:12.149
  • and if you're new to this wholejourney of following Jesus,
  • 00:07:12.249 --> 00:07:15.319
  • what we're reading about whenwe talk about the gospels--
  • 00:07:15.419 --> 00:07:18.222
  • they're not fourdifferent stories,
  • 00:07:18.322 --> 00:07:20.757
  • they're four accountsof the same story.
  • 00:07:20.891 --> 00:07:23.393
  • And as such they represent whatwe get when we watch a movie.
  • 00:07:23.460 --> 00:07:27.097
  • When you watch a movieyou're getting camera angles
  • 00:07:27.231 --> 00:07:29.666
  • covering the same scene.
  • 00:07:29.766 --> 00:07:32.636
  • So it might be like, camera one,and then it's all of a sudden,
  • 00:07:32.736 --> 00:07:35.839
  • it's camera two.
  • 00:07:35.939 --> 00:07:37.107
  • And then you mightgo to the jib camera.
  • 00:07:37.241 --> 00:07:39.076
  • And then after that, you'regoing to jump to the roam cam.
  • 00:07:39.176 --> 00:07:41.612
  • So it's going to be that one.
  • 00:07:41.745 --> 00:07:44.114
  • And then you're back toone and then you're at two
  • 00:07:44.248 --> 00:07:46.950
  • and then you're at roamand then you're at jib.
  • 00:07:47.084 --> 00:07:50.654
  • And meanwhile, mostof our locations
  • 00:07:50.754 --> 00:07:52.589
  • are watching acenter shot-- that
  • 00:07:52.656 --> 00:07:54.124
  • is a shot where I'm head totoe in the center at that one.
  • 00:07:54.258 --> 00:07:58.195
  • And meanwhile, everything'smixing and happening
  • 00:07:58.295 --> 00:08:00.931
  • on the side screens whereit's one or back to one,
  • 00:08:01.031 --> 00:08:04.601
  • and then it's two and thenit's jib and then it's roam--
  • 00:08:04.701 --> 00:08:08.939
  • roam, roam, roam.
  • 00:08:09.039 --> 00:08:12.142
  • So what you're gettingthough is-- back to one,
  • 00:08:12.276 --> 00:08:15.045
  • all right, stay here.
  • 00:08:15.145 --> 00:08:16.513
  • What you're getting thoughis not a different sermon,
  • 00:08:16.613 --> 00:08:18.315
  • you're getting the same sermonfrom different angles-- that's
  • 00:08:18.448 --> 00:08:20.884
  • Matthew, that's Mark,that's Luke, that's John.
  • 00:08:20.984 --> 00:08:22.853
  • Like, why arethere four gospels?
  • 00:08:22.953 --> 00:08:24.354
  • Because a lot happened.
  • 00:08:24.454 --> 00:08:25.355
  • And why do theysometimes contradict?
  • 00:08:25.455 --> 00:08:26.790
  • They don't.
  • 00:08:26.857 --> 00:08:27.958
  • It's just at times,what they saw
  • 00:08:28.025 --> 00:08:29.960
  • is different to whatsomeone else saw,
  • 00:08:30.027 --> 00:08:31.461
  • because what was happeningwas out of the scene for them.
  • 00:08:31.562 --> 00:08:34.031
  • And so you have thecomplimentary accounts.
  • 00:08:34.131 --> 00:08:36.967
  • And even when theyfocus more on one thing,
  • 00:08:37.067 --> 00:08:39.036
  • it just has more to do with whatstuck out to them as they were
  • 00:08:39.136 --> 00:08:41.538
  • talking about it, just likewhen you walk out of church,
  • 00:08:41.638 --> 00:08:44.141
  • we could sent people todo survey and say, what
  • 00:08:44.241 --> 00:08:46.143
  • was the most powerful to you?
  • 00:08:46.209 --> 00:08:47.644
  • And someone might say, man,it was just that one song.
  • 00:08:47.711 --> 00:08:49.179
  • And oh my gosh, every timeit gets me in a hot mess
  • 00:08:49.313 --> 00:08:51.315
  • and I can't wear mascarawhen that song is on.
  • 00:08:51.381 --> 00:08:54.318
  • They should warn us.
  • 00:08:54.384 --> 00:08:55.652
  • And someone else might go, man,that worship experience was
  • 00:08:55.752 --> 00:08:59.156
  • all just about that one momentwhere I gave a significant gift
  • 00:08:59.256 --> 00:09:02.759
  • in the offering.
  • 00:09:02.859 --> 00:09:03.927
  • And because Icarved out something
  • 00:09:04.027 --> 00:09:05.329
  • that was a step of faith,that stuck out to me.
  • 00:09:05.429 --> 00:09:07.331
  • And so they might talk toyou a lot about that moment.
  • 00:09:07.397 --> 00:09:09.266
  • And to the person who'sconducting the survey,
  • 00:09:09.366 --> 00:09:11.201
  • seems like there was just onebig offering or one big song.
  • 00:09:11.335 --> 00:09:13.570
  • And I'm sure there's going tobe one or two at least who're
  • 00:09:13.670 --> 00:09:16.173
  • going to go, it was the message.
  • 00:09:16.239 --> 00:09:17.608
  • I'm just, I'm just--
  • 00:09:17.708 --> 00:09:18.575
  • it's not going to be that,it going to be the song.
  • 00:09:21.511 --> 00:09:23.513
  • But there was point inthe message where God just
  • 00:09:23.580 --> 00:09:27.517
  • spoke to me.
  • 00:09:27.584 --> 00:09:28.852
  • And it was like, no oneelse was in the room,
  • 00:09:28.919 --> 00:09:29.953
  • it was just a wordfrom God for me.
  • 00:09:30.053 --> 00:09:32.189
  • And so the person who'sasking the questions
  • 00:09:32.255 --> 00:09:34.024
  • might be like, wow, it wasjust one big ole preach-athon,
  • 00:09:34.124 --> 00:09:36.526
  • wasn't it?
  • 00:09:36.627 --> 00:09:37.761
  • Which is true, wellthey're all true.
  • 00:09:37.861 --> 00:09:39.029
  • So it was offering,it was a song,
  • 00:09:39.129 --> 00:09:40.430
  • it was a message,that's the gospels.
  • 00:09:40.530 --> 00:09:42.065
  • They're all giving differentperspectives on it.
  • 00:09:42.199 --> 00:09:44.801
  • Luke does thisinterview-- that's
  • 00:09:44.901 --> 00:09:46.203
  • how he got his information,and Matthew and John
  • 00:09:46.303 --> 00:09:48.605
  • were both there.
  • 00:09:48.705 --> 00:09:49.473
  • And what about Mark?
  • 00:09:49.573 --> 00:09:50.907
  • Mark writes down Peter'saccount, the guy whose life
  • 00:09:51.041 --> 00:09:52.909
  • went up in smoke one weekend.
  • 00:09:53.043 --> 00:09:54.878
  • And so Mark is telling us--
  • 00:09:54.945 --> 00:09:56.446
  • Marky Mark and the funky bunch,he got to interview Peter.
  • 00:09:56.546 --> 00:09:59.316
  • And Peter's content is whatprimarily we have in Mark.
  • 00:09:59.416 --> 00:10:01.885
  • All right, so now thatwe're all caught up,
  • 00:10:01.985 --> 00:10:03.720
  • we're going to jump in.
  • 00:10:03.820 --> 00:10:04.988
  • I'm going to tell mysermon title though
  • 00:10:05.088 --> 00:10:06.223
  • and I'm going tobelieve God that even
  • 00:10:06.289 --> 00:10:07.724
  • just the title of my sermonis going to bless somebody.
  • 00:10:07.824 --> 00:10:09.559
  • The title of this messageis this, good night failure,
  • 00:10:09.626 --> 00:10:12.763
  • good morning grace.
  • 00:10:12.896 --> 00:10:14.831
  • Good night failure,good morning grace.
  • 00:10:14.931 --> 00:10:19.670
  • Good night failure.
  • 00:10:19.770 --> 00:10:21.938
  • Are you encouraged evenjust at the sound of that?
  • 00:10:22.072 --> 00:10:25.242
  • Good night failure,good morning grace.
  • 00:10:25.342 --> 00:10:28.245
  • When I say, good night failure,could you say, good morning
  • 00:10:28.311 --> 00:10:30.781
  • grace at the top of your lungs?
  • 00:10:30.914 --> 00:10:32.249
  • Come on.
  • 00:10:32.315 --> 00:10:32.916
  • Good night failure.
  • 00:10:32.983 --> 00:10:33.750
  • Good morning grace.
  • 00:10:33.850 --> 00:10:35.452
  • That's happy.
  • 00:10:35.585 --> 00:10:36.119
  • All right, Mark 14--
  • 00:10:36.253 --> 00:10:37.954
  • this is happeningat the last supper.
  • 00:10:38.088 --> 00:10:39.623
  • It says this, Jesus turned tothem, his disciples and said,
  • 00:10:39.756 --> 00:10:42.859
  • hey guys, all of youwill be made to stumble
  • 00:10:42.959 --> 00:10:45.128
  • because of me this night.
  • 00:10:45.262 --> 00:10:47.664
  • That's a heavy revelation.
  • 00:10:47.764 --> 00:10:49.466
  • So just a FYI--
  • 00:10:49.599 --> 00:10:50.600
  • all of you are going totrip and fall tonight.
  • 00:10:50.701 --> 00:10:52.836
  • All of you are going to falltonight, for it is written,
  • 00:10:52.936 --> 00:10:56.606
  • I will strike the shepherd andthe sheep will be scattered.
  • 00:10:56.673 --> 00:11:00.343
  • Saying, when I getarrested, you all
  • 00:11:00.444 --> 00:11:02.312
  • are going to run around like asnake wriggling in the ground
  • 00:11:02.446 --> 00:11:05.682
  • with his head cut off.
  • 00:11:05.782 --> 00:11:08.185
  • But after I've been raised,I'll go before you to Galilee.
  • 00:11:08.285 --> 00:11:11.621
  • Peter said to him, Lord,even if all these idiots
  • 00:11:11.722 --> 00:11:16.293
  • are made to stumble, not me.
  • 00:11:16.393 --> 00:11:20.063
  • I will not be.
  • 00:11:20.163 --> 00:11:22.065
  • Jesus said to him, gladyou brought that up Peter,
  • 00:11:22.165 --> 00:11:24.134
  • because as surely Isay to you that today,
  • 00:11:24.234 --> 00:11:26.069
  • even this night, beforethe rooster crows twice,
  • 00:11:26.169 --> 00:11:28.572
  • you will actuallydeny me three times.
  • 00:11:28.672 --> 00:11:31.007
  • So just so you know.
  • 00:11:31.141 --> 00:11:33.977
  • Just put that on your calendar.
  • 00:11:34.044 --> 00:11:35.579
  • Siri-- add to my schedule,colossal mistake coming
  • 00:11:35.679 --> 00:11:39.583
  • in the wee morning hours.
  • 00:11:39.683 --> 00:11:42.319
  • Verse 31-- but he spoke, Peter,more vehemently saying, no,
  • 00:11:42.385 --> 00:11:46.056
  • if I have to die withyou, I will not deny you.
  • 00:11:46.156 --> 00:11:50.494
  • And once the disciples heardit, they all chimed in likewise.
  • 00:11:50.560 --> 00:11:53.563
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, we're withPeter, you don't know us.
  • 00:11:53.663 --> 00:11:55.999
  • We're legit, too legit to quit.
  • 00:11:56.066 --> 00:11:58.902
  • We're not going to deny you.
  • 00:11:59.002 --> 00:12:01.271
  • So they go on from there,Jesus let's it ride.
  • 00:12:01.371 --> 00:12:05.075
  • Peter, all the disciplesare taken with Jesus
  • 00:12:05.175 --> 00:12:07.844
  • to the Garden of Gethsemanewhere Jesus is arrested.
  • 00:12:07.911 --> 00:12:12.349
  • And he gets takento face his trials.
  • 00:12:12.449 --> 00:12:16.186
  • But first, we know Peter--
  • 00:12:16.253 --> 00:12:19.022
  • Peter made the promise.
  • 00:12:19.089 --> 00:12:19.956
  • What was the promise?
  • 00:12:20.056 --> 00:12:20.791
  • Anybody remember?
  • 00:12:20.891 --> 00:12:22.192
  • Peter's promise was-- evenif all these guys deny,
  • 00:12:22.292 --> 00:12:25.195
  • I'm ride or die, weare together in this.
  • 00:12:25.295 --> 00:12:27.931
  • And if I have to die, so be it.
  • 00:12:28.031 --> 00:12:31.201
  • So when the arrestparty comes, there's
  • 00:12:31.301 --> 00:12:33.270
  • hundreds of peopleinvolved-- soldiers,
  • 00:12:33.370 --> 00:12:36.206
  • there's religiousleaders, there's
  • 00:12:36.306 --> 00:12:39.709
  • of course, Judas Iscariotbetraying Jesus with a kiss.
  • 00:12:39.776 --> 00:12:42.779
  • And we know that the highpriest sent his servant, who had
  • 00:12:42.879 --> 00:12:47.083
  • been unarmed, who had been--
  • 00:12:47.217 --> 00:12:48.485
  • it's the kid, thisis the guy who
  • 00:12:48.585 --> 00:12:49.986
  • pours water on thehigh priest' hands.
  • 00:12:50.086 --> 00:12:52.589
  • So you got soldiers,you got the SWAT team,
  • 00:12:52.722 --> 00:12:57.160
  • you have adults everywhere.
  • 00:12:57.260 --> 00:12:58.995
  • Peter pulls his swordout, because he promised
  • 00:12:59.095 --> 00:13:01.231
  • he was going to diedefending Jesus,
  • 00:13:01.298 --> 00:13:02.833
  • and he attacked the one personwho we know for a fact was not
  • 00:13:02.933 --> 00:13:06.303
  • armed, the only onewho probably was
  • 00:13:06.403 --> 00:13:08.672
  • a child there thatday, he attacked a kid
  • 00:13:08.772 --> 00:13:11.942
  • and cut his ear off, OK?
  • 00:13:12.075 --> 00:13:13.610
  • That's what Peter did.
  • 00:13:13.743 --> 00:13:14.678
  • I'm going to die withyou Jesus, right?
  • 00:13:14.778 --> 00:13:16.413
  • And he cut the ear off ofa little kid named Malchus.
  • 00:13:16.513 --> 00:13:19.149
  • Jesus wasn't impressed.
  • 00:13:19.249 --> 00:13:20.617
  • Jesus is in chains,he's been taken away
  • 00:13:23.320 --> 00:13:25.755
  • and he sees Peter do this and hegoes, no, no, not so much that.
  • 00:13:25.822 --> 00:13:31.928
  • He says, Peter, I could callfor 12 legions of angels
  • 00:13:31.995 --> 00:13:35.599
  • and they would comeand devour these
  • 00:13:35.665 --> 00:13:37.334
  • and incinerate these soldierswith light from their eyes.
  • 00:13:37.434 --> 00:13:42.272
  • I don't need you to cut hisear off, that is not helpful
  • 00:13:42.372 --> 00:13:45.342
  • and you made a mess.
  • 00:13:45.442 --> 00:13:46.610
  • So just, could youjust give me a minute?
  • 00:13:46.710 --> 00:13:48.378
  • So they unlock him and Jesusgoes and touches the guy's ear
  • 00:13:48.478 --> 00:13:50.814
  • and it heals.
  • 00:13:50.947 --> 00:13:51.815
  • And He says, OK, very good.
  • 00:13:51.948 --> 00:13:53.116
  • And please, go rightahead with your chains,
  • 00:13:53.216 --> 00:13:54.885
  • please put them back on me.
  • 00:13:54.985 --> 00:13:56.486
  • And Peter's just standing therewith a bloody hand and flecks
  • 00:13:56.620 --> 00:14:02.392
  • of the guy's ear on his wrist.
  • 00:14:02.492 --> 00:14:03.960
  • And Jesus getstaken to the first
  • 00:14:07.697 --> 00:14:09.699
  • of six trials that will allhappen throughout the night.
  • 00:14:09.799 --> 00:14:12.369

  • 00:15:08.725 --> 00:15:11.895
  • Now notice in John 18--
  • 00:15:12.429 --> 00:15:13.863
  • next camera angle-- it says,and Simon Peter follow Jesus
  • 00:15:13.930 --> 00:15:17.934
  • and so did another disciple.
  • 00:15:18.034 --> 00:15:20.070
  • Now that disciple wasknown to the high priest
  • 00:15:20.203 --> 00:15:23.406
  • and went with Jesus into thecourtyard of the high priest.
  • 00:15:23.540 --> 00:15:25.742
  • This is funny to me, becausethis is John writing.
  • 00:15:25.875 --> 00:15:28.311
  • And you know which disciplewe're talking about?
  • 00:15:28.411 --> 00:15:30.814
  • John.
  • 00:15:30.914 --> 00:15:31.982
  • But he describeshimself so low key.
  • 00:15:32.082 --> 00:15:33.717
  • He's like, the disciple thatwas hanging out with Peter
  • 00:15:33.817 --> 00:15:36.886
  • had connections.
  • 00:15:36.987 --> 00:15:38.388
  • I don't want to brag, it wasme and I had connections,
  • 00:15:38.488 --> 00:15:42.058
  • so I got us in.
  • 00:15:42.158 --> 00:15:44.494
  • The bouncer knew John, butnot Peter, so John's kind
  • 00:15:44.594 --> 00:15:47.297
  • of trying to rub it intohis face a little bit.
  • 00:15:47.397 --> 00:15:49.265
  • This is this John, Peterthing that always goes down.
  • 00:15:49.399 --> 00:15:53.169
  • But Peter stood at the dooroutside, couldn't get in.
  • 00:15:53.269 --> 00:15:56.606
  • The other disciple-- notmentioning any names,
  • 00:15:56.740 --> 00:16:00.510
  • but it was me--
  • 00:16:00.610 --> 00:16:01.411
  • who was known tothe high priest,
  • 00:16:01.511 --> 00:16:02.746
  • went out and spoke toher who kept the door
  • 00:16:02.846 --> 00:16:05.081
  • and brought Peter in.
  • 00:16:05.181 --> 00:16:07.650
  • I'm with John.
  • 00:16:07.751 --> 00:16:08.752
  • He gave him a shirt thatsaid, I'm with John,
  • 00:16:08.852 --> 00:16:10.653
  • and that's what he did.
  • 00:16:10.754 --> 00:16:11.755
  • So verse 17 says,then the servant girl
  • 00:16:11.821 --> 00:16:13.757
  • who kept the door said toPeter, you are not also
  • 00:16:13.857 --> 00:16:17.193
  • one of this man'sdisciples are you?
  • 00:16:17.293 --> 00:16:19.829
  • He said, I am not.
  • 00:16:19.929 --> 00:16:22.632
  • Now the question is, aren'tyou a Jesus disciple?
  • 00:16:22.766 --> 00:16:26.002
  • And Peter says,never met the guy.
  • 00:16:26.102 --> 00:16:28.938
  • Jesus who?
  • 00:16:29.039 --> 00:16:30.040
  • I don't know any Jesus'.
  • 00:16:30.140 --> 00:16:31.608
  • You sure you don't mean, Jes s,'cause I know a guy named
  • 00:16:31.674 --> 00:16:33.343
  • Jes s, but I don'tknow any Jesus'.
  • 00:16:33.443 --> 00:16:35.278
  • Verse 18-- now theservants and officers
  • 00:16:38.481 --> 00:16:41.618
  • who had made a fire of coalstood there, for it was cold
  • 00:16:41.718 --> 00:16:46.122
  • and they warmed themselves.
  • 00:16:46.222 --> 00:16:48.324
  • And Peter stood withthem and warmed himself.
  • 00:16:48.458 --> 00:16:52.195
  • And then if we jump toverse 25, they said to him--
  • 00:16:52.295 --> 00:16:54.864
  • people at the fire now--
  • 00:16:54.964 --> 00:16:56.699
  • you are not also one ofhis disciples, are you?
  • 00:16:56.800 --> 00:17:00.003
  • He denied it and said, no.
  • 00:17:00.136 --> 00:17:05.141
  • Did I see you withJesus one time
  • 00:17:05.208 --> 00:17:06.709
  • when he was preachingthat one sermon?
  • 00:17:06.810 --> 00:17:08.578
  • No.
  • 00:17:08.678 --> 00:17:09.579
  • No.
  • 00:17:09.679 --> 00:17:10.180
  • Verse 26-- one of theservants of the high priest,
  • 00:17:14.484 --> 00:17:19.422
  • a relative of him whoseear Peter cut off,
  • 00:17:19.522 --> 00:17:27.230
  • said, did I not see youin the garden with him?
  • 00:17:27.330 --> 00:17:32.502
  • I never forget a face,especially the face of somebody
  • 00:17:32.569 --> 00:17:36.906
  • who cut my cousin's ear off.
  • 00:17:37.006 --> 00:17:39.275
  • It's like, this is really funny.
  • 00:17:39.375 --> 00:17:42.679
  • Weren't you in thegarden with him?
  • 00:17:42.745 --> 00:17:44.214
  • Verse 26.
  • 00:17:44.347 --> 00:17:45.849
  • Peter then denied again andimmediately, a rooster crowed.
  • 00:17:45.915 --> 00:17:51.621
  • Now if we jumpedover to Mark's POV,
  • 00:17:54.390 --> 00:17:56.526
  • we don't have time to get intoit, but Peter at this point
  • 00:17:56.593 --> 00:17:59.229
  • began to curse thathe didn't know Jesus.
  • 00:17:59.362 --> 00:18:01.564
  • And the Bible says thathe began to swear oaths.
  • 00:18:01.698 --> 00:18:04.734
  • And if you really look into thelanguage of what he was saying,
  • 00:18:04.868 --> 00:18:07.604
  • it's different than justthe equivalent of us
  • 00:18:07.704 --> 00:18:10.974
  • swearing up and down, or Iswear to my mother's grave,
  • 00:18:11.074 --> 00:18:14.377
  • or I swear to God.
  • 00:18:14.477 --> 00:18:15.712
  • Basically, what he wasdoing was he was trying
  • 00:18:15.812 --> 00:18:17.213
  • to prove to them hewouldn't know Jesus,
  • 00:18:17.280 --> 00:18:19.315
  • because he began to curseJesus as though to say,
  • 00:18:19.415 --> 00:18:23.386
  • would a disciple of Hiscurse him like this?
  • 00:18:23.453 --> 00:18:26.422
  • Would a disciple ofJesus talk like this?
  • 00:18:26.556 --> 00:18:28.458
  • And though he begins to justrail on Jesus and curses
  • 00:18:28.558 --> 00:18:31.494
  • about what Jesus isn't andwho he isn't to say to them,
  • 00:18:31.594 --> 00:18:34.964
  • a disciple of Jesus wouldnever talk like this.
  • 00:18:35.064 --> 00:18:37.901
  • Now here's what's soheartbreaking about this.
  • 00:18:37.967 --> 00:18:40.737
  • Jesus went to sixdifferent trials,
  • 00:18:40.837 --> 00:18:42.472
  • but they were not allin the same locations.
  • 00:18:42.572 --> 00:18:44.741
  • And he would get takenfrom trial to trial
  • 00:18:44.841 --> 00:18:46.576
  • throughout the night asthe religious leaders
  • 00:18:46.676 --> 00:18:48.745
  • would make it a pretenseof it all being legal.
  • 00:18:48.811 --> 00:18:51.181
  • And certain protocolshad to be observed
  • 00:18:51.281 --> 00:18:53.416
  • in order for an executionto actually take place.
  • 00:18:53.483 --> 00:18:56.586
  • And so as Peteris standing there,
  • 00:18:56.653 --> 00:18:58.521
  • according to Mark'sgospel, literally
  • 00:18:58.621 --> 00:19:00.190
  • in the middle of showingand demonstrating
  • 00:19:00.290 --> 00:19:02.425
  • how he was willing to talkso that they would know,
  • 00:19:02.492 --> 00:19:05.295
  • there is no way thisguy's a follower of Jesus,
  • 00:19:05.428 --> 00:19:07.463
  • because look how he'sspeaking about him.
  • 00:19:07.597 --> 00:19:10.500
  • Luke 22 says, the Lordturned at that moment
  • 00:19:10.600 --> 00:19:13.670
  • being taken across thecourtyard and looked at Peter.
  • 00:19:13.770 --> 00:19:18.942
  • And Peter remembered theword of the Lord, how
  • 00:19:19.042 --> 00:19:22.445
  • he had said to him,before the rooster crows,
  • 00:19:22.512 --> 00:19:26.049
  • you will deny me three times.
  • 00:19:26.149 --> 00:19:29.886
  • So Peter went out and didn'tjust weep, he wept bitterly.
  • 00:19:29.986 --> 00:19:38.962
  • That look in Jesus' eyes.
  • 00:19:39.028 --> 00:19:40.663
  • I once had a boss who wastelling a great story.
  • 00:19:43.032 --> 00:19:45.802
  • And the story wasthat he was informed
  • 00:19:45.902 --> 00:19:52.242
  • of the power of amicrophone in a very
  • 00:19:52.342 --> 00:19:54.911
  • difficult way to his ego.
  • 00:19:55.011 --> 00:19:57.714
  • He like myself waswearing a microphone that
  • 00:19:57.814 --> 00:20:02.719
  • gives a receiverin the back pocket,
  • 00:20:02.819 --> 00:20:04.587
  • or a transmitter in theback pocket and then
  • 00:20:04.687 --> 00:20:06.723
  • a microphone that you wear onyour face or on your shirt,
  • 00:20:06.823 --> 00:20:09.759
  • and he was wearingit at church and they
  • 00:20:09.859 --> 00:20:13.696
  • had a guest band in that day.
  • 00:20:13.830 --> 00:20:15.498
  • They had brought a bandin to do some music.
  • 00:20:15.565 --> 00:20:17.934
  • And the band was upplaying and the pastor
  • 00:20:18.034 --> 00:20:20.903
  • had to introduce them.
  • 00:20:21.004 --> 00:20:21.871
  • And so he got upon platform to say,
  • 00:20:22.005 --> 00:20:23.773
  • hey, this band is whatever,whatever, from wherever,
  • 00:20:23.873 --> 00:20:27.677
  • wherever and did that andthen went off stage and was
  • 00:20:27.744 --> 00:20:30.546
  • listening to them and theyweren't playing so great.
  • 00:20:30.680 --> 00:20:32.682
  • And so he kind of turned to hiscoworker and was just saying,
  • 00:20:32.782 --> 00:20:36.619
  • this band is terrible, we'renever bringing them back,
  • 00:20:36.719 --> 00:20:39.022
  • I don't know what in the world.
  • 00:20:39.122 --> 00:20:40.356
  • It's just, blah, blah,blah and just went on
  • 00:20:40.456 --> 00:20:41.591
  • and on and on and on and on.
  • 00:20:41.691 --> 00:20:43.192
  • Now you think I'm going to tellyou that their speakers were
  • 00:20:43.259 --> 00:20:46.296
  • broadcasting what he wassaying, but that's not
  • 00:20:46.396 --> 00:20:48.364
  • what was happening, praise God.
  • 00:20:48.431 --> 00:20:50.867
  • But the band waswearing in-ear monitors.
  • 00:20:50.967 --> 00:20:53.569
  • And the in-ear monitors allowedthem to hear themselves,
  • 00:20:53.703 --> 00:20:56.539
  • but also the sound guy hadmixed in the pastor's voice
  • 00:20:56.606 --> 00:20:59.375
  • so that they could hearhim introducing them.
  • 00:20:59.475 --> 00:21:01.477
  • The problem was, thechannel wasn't muted,
  • 00:21:01.577 --> 00:21:03.112
  • so as he was offstage rantingand raving about how bad they
  • 00:21:03.212 --> 00:21:06.883
  • were performing, thatwas what they were
  • 00:21:06.949 --> 00:21:09.218
  • hearing as they were playing.
  • 00:21:09.285 --> 00:21:10.953
  • You'd almost rather havethe mic on in the bathroom.
  • 00:21:15.625 --> 00:21:19.295
  • And when he told me that story,of course, the good on it
  • 00:21:19.395 --> 00:21:22.565
  • was him saying,and that was when
  • 00:21:22.632 --> 00:21:24.567
  • I learned thepower of the tongue
  • 00:21:24.667 --> 00:21:26.169
  • and we always are being heardby somebody even if it's by God
  • 00:21:26.269 --> 00:21:29.405
  • and we always have tobe careful what we say.
  • 00:21:29.505 --> 00:21:31.307
  • What a great lesson, right?
  • 00:21:31.407 --> 00:21:33.643
  • So Peter here in this momentas he's captured like a deer
  • 00:21:33.743 --> 00:21:36.112
  • in the headlights, havinga conversation about how
  • 00:21:36.245 --> 00:21:39.282
  • terrible Jesus is,and there of course,
  • 00:21:39.415 --> 00:21:41.651
  • Jesus comes walkingby just as the rooster
  • 00:21:41.751 --> 00:21:44.087
  • starts crowing, whichis exactly what had
  • 00:21:44.153 --> 00:21:46.589
  • been said by Jesus justhours before as to what
  • 00:21:46.656 --> 00:21:50.326
  • would take place.
  • 00:21:50.426 --> 00:21:51.761
  • I think all of us canfeel the battery acid that
  • 00:21:51.828 --> 00:21:53.629
  • would be churning and thehopelessness and the despair
  • 00:21:53.763 --> 00:21:56.199
  • and the, I'll never get back.
  • 00:21:56.299 --> 00:21:58.101
  • Now fortunately, just a few dayslater, just a few days later,
  • 00:21:58.201 --> 00:22:03.005
  • another story takesplace where Peter
  • 00:22:03.106 --> 00:22:05.708
  • who felt so low after this,he for sure was thinking,
  • 00:22:05.808 --> 00:22:11.114
  • even if God could ever finda way to overlook this,
  • 00:22:11.180 --> 00:22:13.950
  • there's no way I'mever preaching again.
  • 00:22:14.050 --> 00:22:16.452
  • There's no way I'm ever--
  • 00:22:16.552 --> 00:22:17.620
  • I mean, I can'timagine a life where
  • 00:22:17.720 --> 00:22:20.056
  • I could get throughwhat I've gone through.
  • 00:22:20.156 --> 00:22:23.159
  • So he turns to his friends andsays, I'm going to go fish,
  • 00:22:23.292 --> 00:22:27.497
  • I'm going to go fish.
  • 00:22:27.630 --> 00:22:28.798
  • And that was, if youdon't know, not just
  • 00:22:28.865 --> 00:22:30.800
  • a leisure thing for him, thatwas a commercial occupation
  • 00:22:30.867 --> 00:22:33.302
  • for him and moresignificantly, it
  • 00:22:33.369 --> 00:22:34.837
  • was something Jesuscalled him away
  • 00:22:34.971 --> 00:22:36.406
  • from when he was called to comepreach the gospel full time.
  • 00:22:36.506 --> 00:22:39.842
  • And so for Peter to say, I'mgoing fishing was basically
  • 00:22:39.976 --> 00:22:42.145
  • saying, I'm returningto my former life,
  • 00:22:42.211 --> 00:22:44.147
  • I'm returning to mylife, because there's
  • 00:22:44.213 --> 00:22:45.882
  • no way I could ever showmy face around here again.
  • 00:22:45.982 --> 00:22:48.818
  • You have to let that sink in.
  • 00:22:48.885 --> 00:22:50.319
  • As we now find Jesus showingup, look at this, verse 4--
  • 00:22:50.420 --> 00:22:55.324
  • when the morning had now come,Jesus stood on the shore,
  • 00:22:55.391 --> 00:22:59.929
  • yet the disciples did not knowthat it was Jesus, because he
  • 00:23:00.029 --> 00:23:02.665
  • was trixie like that.
  • 00:23:02.732 --> 00:23:04.200
  • Verse 5-- Jesus said to them,children, have you any food?
  • 00:23:04.333 --> 00:23:08.771
  • They answered him and said, no,and thanks for bringing it up.
  • 00:23:08.871 --> 00:23:11.441
  • We have not caught anyfish even though we
  • 00:23:11.541 --> 00:23:14.010
  • have fished all night.
  • 00:23:14.110 --> 00:23:15.745
  • And the more Ifished, the more I
  • 00:23:15.845 --> 00:23:17.346
  • realized they call it fishingfor a reason, not catching,
  • 00:23:17.413 --> 00:23:19.749
  • because it seems like it'spredominantly a fishing
  • 00:23:19.849 --> 00:23:22.418
  • thing, not a catching thing.
  • 00:23:22.518 --> 00:23:23.853
  • But that's how their night went.
  • 00:23:23.920 --> 00:23:25.087
  • It was just all fishingand no catching.
  • 00:23:25.188 --> 00:23:28.191
  • And he said to them,verse 6-- cast the net
  • 00:23:28.291 --> 00:23:30.526
  • on the right side of theboat and you'll find some.
  • 00:23:30.626 --> 00:23:33.763
  • Now the funny thing aboutthis is that this is literally
  • 00:23:33.863 --> 00:23:36.299
  • a situation that took placebefore Jesus called Peter
  • 00:23:36.399 --> 00:23:39.202
  • to preach.
  • 00:23:39.302 --> 00:23:40.703
  • He did the exact same thingand Peter argued with him.
  • 00:23:40.803 --> 00:23:42.238
  • Basically, it was like, I'mthe pro, you're the pastor.
  • 00:23:42.371 --> 00:23:45.141
  • I don't tell you howto read your sermons,
  • 00:23:45.241 --> 00:23:46.943
  • you don't tell mewhich bait to use.
  • 00:23:47.043 --> 00:23:48.878
  • But nevertheless, becauseyou're like the Son of God,
  • 00:23:48.978 --> 00:23:51.113
  • I'll humor you, and did itand caught the biggest catch
  • 00:23:51.214 --> 00:23:54.317
  • of his life and literally,the nets began to break
  • 00:23:54.417 --> 00:23:56.586
  • and he almost drowned todeath because of this.
  • 00:23:56.719 --> 00:23:58.554
  • So this is veryfunny that Jesus is
  • 00:23:58.654 --> 00:24:00.456
  • replicating the call of Peter.
  • 00:24:00.556 --> 00:24:04.160
  • So they cast and now theywere not able to draw it
  • 00:24:04.260 --> 00:24:06.429
  • in because of themultitude of fish.
  • 00:24:06.562 --> 00:24:08.498
  • That was when thatdisciple whom Jesus loved,
  • 00:24:08.598 --> 00:24:11.067
  • that's how Johndescribes himself--
  • 00:24:11.167 --> 00:24:13.736
  • Marcia, Marcia, Marcia, right?
  • 00:24:13.803 --> 00:24:15.838
  • He said to Peter, it's the Lord.
  • 00:24:15.938 --> 00:24:18.774
  • Now here's how you knowthat this is not made up,
  • 00:24:18.908 --> 00:24:21.344
  • this is how it happened.
  • 00:24:21.444 --> 00:24:23.346
  • It's the Lord.
  • 00:24:23.446 --> 00:24:24.480
  • When Simon Peterheard it was Lord,
  • 00:24:24.580 --> 00:24:25.948
  • he put on his outergarment for he
  • 00:24:26.082 --> 00:24:27.650
  • had removed it-- onetranslation says,
  • 00:24:27.750 --> 00:24:29.318
  • 'cause he was fishing naked.
  • 00:24:29.418 --> 00:24:30.653
  • I don't know how theyroll back in that day,
  • 00:24:30.753 --> 00:24:32.455
  • but man, that wouldbe weird today.
  • 00:24:32.588 --> 00:24:34.790
  • For he was naked and--
  • 00:24:34.924 --> 00:24:36.759
  • look at this-- and thenplunged into the sea.
  • 00:24:36.826 --> 00:24:39.262
  • Like how do you know thatthe Bible wasn't made up?
  • 00:24:39.328 --> 00:24:42.965
  • He got dressed and you justsee him in such a frenzy.
  • 00:24:43.099 --> 00:24:45.601
  • He's like, I got toget my clothes on,
  • 00:24:45.668 --> 00:24:46.669
  • I can't talk to Jesus naked.
  • 00:24:46.769 --> 00:24:47.970
  • But then he jumps inthe lake, like the boat
  • 00:24:48.104 --> 00:24:50.540
  • is like heading tothe edge of the lake.
  • 00:24:50.640 --> 00:24:52.475
  • And you almost get the picturethat he's swimming furiously.
  • 00:24:52.608 --> 00:24:55.278
  • But then look at this, as soonas they had come to land--
  • 00:24:55.344 --> 00:24:58.147
  • oh no, verse 8, rather,the other disciples
  • 00:24:58.281 --> 00:24:59.982
  • came in a littleboat though, for they
  • 00:25:00.116 --> 00:25:01.651
  • were not far from land.
  • 00:25:01.784 --> 00:25:04.120
  • So you get this picture ofPeter swimming and the boat
  • 00:25:04.186 --> 00:25:06.722
  • beats him there.
  • 00:25:06.822 --> 00:25:08.190
  • They're like, dude,why didn't you stay?
  • 00:25:08.291 --> 00:25:09.959
  • And he's like, well, youput your clothes on to jump
  • 00:25:10.026 --> 00:25:12.295
  • in to swim.
  • 00:25:12.361 --> 00:25:13.462
  • See what I'm saying?
  • 00:25:13.563 --> 00:25:14.497
  • This is a ridiculous sequence.
  • 00:25:14.630 --> 00:25:16.832
  • Why did it get written this way?
  • 00:25:16.966 --> 00:25:18.467
  • Because that's how it happenedand John's making fun of him.
  • 00:25:18.534 --> 00:25:20.202
  • John's going to make sureand include in his account
  • 00:25:20.303 --> 00:25:22.572
  • Peter looking likea moron if he can.
  • 00:25:22.672 --> 00:25:24.240
  • For they were not far fromland, just 200 cubits.
  • 00:25:27.376 --> 00:25:29.979
  • And they came draggingthe net with fish.
  • 00:25:30.079 --> 00:25:32.081
  • Verse 9-- then as soonas they had come to land,
  • 00:25:32.181 --> 00:25:34.083
  • they saw a fire of coals thereand fish laid on it and bread.
  • 00:25:34.183 --> 00:25:38.154
  • Jesus said to them, bringme some of the fish,
  • 00:25:38.254 --> 00:25:41.324
  • which you have just caught.
  • 00:25:41.390 --> 00:25:43.059
  • Simon Peter went upand dragged the net
  • 00:25:43.159 --> 00:25:44.760
  • to land full of large fish.
  • 00:25:44.860 --> 00:25:46.329
  • You're probably wonderinghow many fish there were.
  • 00:25:46.395 --> 00:25:48.598
  • There were 153 of them.
  • 00:25:48.698 --> 00:25:51.534
  • Thanks for the details boys.
  • 00:25:51.667 --> 00:25:53.502
  • And although there were somany, the net was not broken.
  • 00:25:53.603 --> 00:25:57.006
  • Jesus said to them, comeand eat some breakfast,
  • 00:25:57.073 --> 00:26:00.943
  • yet none of thedisciples dared ask
  • 00:26:01.043 --> 00:26:02.411
  • him, who are you, becausethey knew it was the Lord.
  • 00:26:02.511 --> 00:26:05.281
  • Jesus then came and took thebread and gave it to them,
  • 00:26:05.381 --> 00:26:08.851
  • serves them breakfastand likewise, the fish.
  • 00:26:08.918 --> 00:26:12.355
  • This is now the third time Jesusshowed himself to his disciples
  • 00:26:12.421 --> 00:26:15.124
  • after he was raisedfrom the dead.
  • 00:26:15.224 --> 00:26:17.593
  • So when they hadeaten breakfast,
  • 00:26:17.693 --> 00:26:19.128
  • Jesus said to Simon Peter,Simon, son of Jonah,
  • 00:26:19.228 --> 00:26:24.033
  • do you love me more than these?
  • 00:26:24.133 --> 00:26:26.869
  • Do you love me more than these.
  • 00:26:26.936 --> 00:26:29.572
  • Now there's beensermons preached
  • 00:26:29.705 --> 00:26:32.241
  • about how he wastalking about the fish.
  • 00:26:32.375 --> 00:26:34.043
  • Do you love me morethan these fish?
  • 00:26:34.110 --> 00:26:35.878
  • But the context isconnection to Peter's bravado
  • 00:26:35.978 --> 00:26:40.816
  • at the Last Supper.
  • 00:26:40.916 --> 00:26:42.118
  • Even if all these moronsbetray you, I won't.
  • 00:26:42.218 --> 00:26:44.987
  • So I think he'sgiving him a chance
  • 00:26:45.087 --> 00:26:46.555
  • to set the record straight.
  • 00:26:46.656 --> 00:26:48.157
  • Peter, you still think you loveme more than anybody else does.
  • 00:26:48.257 --> 00:26:50.893
  • You love me more than these.
  • 00:26:50.993 --> 00:26:54.163
  • And he said to Him, yes Lord,you know that I love you.
  • 00:26:54.263 --> 00:26:57.733
  • He said to him, feed my lambs.
  • 00:26:57.800 --> 00:27:00.569
  • He said to him again, a secondtime, Simon, son of Jonah,
  • 00:27:00.636 --> 00:27:03.305
  • do you love me?
  • 00:27:03.406 --> 00:27:04.907
  • He said to Him, yes Lord,you know that I love you.
  • 00:27:04.974 --> 00:27:08.911
  • He said to him, tend my sheep.
  • 00:27:08.978 --> 00:27:12.081
  • He said to him the thirdtime, Simon, son of Jonah,
  • 00:27:12.181 --> 00:27:15.251
  • do you love me.
  • 00:27:15.351 --> 00:27:16.619
  • Peter was grieved, because hesaid to him the third time,
  • 00:27:16.752 --> 00:27:19.789
  • do you love me?
  • 00:27:19.922 --> 00:27:21.157
  • And he said to Him, Lord,you know all things,
  • 00:27:21.257 --> 00:27:23.793
  • you know that I love you.
  • 00:27:23.926 --> 00:27:25.795
  • Jesus said to him,feed my sheep.
  • 00:27:25.928 --> 00:27:28.097
  • MUSIC
  • 00:27:28.164 --> 00:27:30.000
