1 Following Jesus, Part 10

2 Pray about ONE thing to take to from todays lesson.

3 When do you find it hardest to be open about your faith?

4 32 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, Sit here while I pray. 33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. 34 My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death, he said to them. Stay here and keep watch.

5 35 Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him. 36 Abba, [a] Father, he said, everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.a

6 37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. Simon, he said to Peter, are you asleep? Couldnt you keep watch for one hour? 38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. 39 Once more he went away and prayed the same thing.

7 40 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him. 41 Returning the third time, he said to them, Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!

8 1.It was Jesus final night before the cross. What was He feeling? 2. What did Jesus spend most of his time doing and what does that teach us? 3.What did the disciples spend most of their time doing and what does that teach us?

9 54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. 55 And when some there had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, This man was with him.

10 57 But he denied it. Woman, I dont know him, he said. 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, You also are one of them. Man, I am not! Peter replied.

11 59 About an hour later another asserted, Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean. 60 Peter replied, Man, I dont know what youre talking about! Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.

12 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

13 1.What do you think motivated Peter to follow Jesus to the courtyard? 2.Why do you think he followed at a distance? 3.How did Peters responses reflect changes in his heart as the night progressed?

14 1.As the rooster crowed, Jesus and Peter locked eyes. What do you think Jesus and Peter felt at that moment? 2.Peter vowed to die for Jesus but snoozed in the garden and denied Jesus in the courtyard. In what ways do we struggle like Peter for consistent followership?

15 1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

16 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among the dead?

17 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again. 8 Then they remembered his words.

18 9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. 11 But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.

19 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.

20 1.If you had been a disciple, what would you have felt (a) on the way to the tomb, (b) after finding it empty, (c) as the angels told you what happened, (d) returning to tell the other and (e) when the others didnt believe you? 2.How was Peters response different from the other disciples reaction? 3.What does that say about Peters attitude toward Jesus – and himself – since his denials?
