The Great Escape

Have you ever wondered what it would’ve been like to walk alongside Jesus when he was on earth? To see sick people made whole again, to eat with Jesus and talk with Him, to glimpse His full glory and then to see Him die the death of a criminal.  That’s exactly what Peter did.  Peter’s faith was forged in these first-hand experiences. 

2 Peter is Peter’s parting words before his own death.  Amazingly, Peter says that our faith is every bit as precious as his.  We, along with Peter, are participants in the greatest escape ever.  And Jesus, the one Peter walked beside, is the hero in our story too. 

(1) Imagine what it was like to be Peter. Read through some of these incredible moments:

(2) Read through 2 Peter. What is the 'Great Escape'?
