Peter learns to follow Jesus
One of the most vivid characters in the gospels is that of Peter, with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John writing their accounts in a manner that gives us a great deal of insight into his personality. Mark is probably based on the testimony and teaching of Peter himself. The result of this is a huge amount of detail about how this particular man learnt to follow Jesus through a whole set of varied situations. As much through his mistakes as his successes, studying Peter can help us a great deal as we seek to learn more about how to follow Jesus.
