Matthew 26:57-75

The Jewish leaders did not, apparently, stop for one moment to consider whether the claim they asked Jesus about and that he admitted to might have been actually true. They were so blinded by their anger that the killed the one who claimed to be the Messiah. That is a big, big mistake, if you are wrong and He is right. The verse Jesus chose for support was interesting.

Never noticed before that the servants understood Jesus to be both from Galilee and from Nazareth. And, Peter was linked to Jesus who was from both places.

The courtyard is a haunting place. It's not outside where you would never be spotted. It's not inside with Jesus. It is the in between place of perceived safety where denial lurks right around the corner!
