And they all left him…


   Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.” And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” But he said emphatically, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same.     ……..And they all left him and fled.
Mark 14:29-31 and 50 ESV

How many times have I read this passage and how many times have I thought to myself, “Peter was such a wimp…I wouldn’t have denied Jesus…?”  Well, the comment at the end of this passage speaks volumes, ...“and they all said the same..”

As much as I would like to think that I would be the strong, brave defender of Jesus, this verse seems to indicate that the disciples ALL felt this way, and yet Jesus was denied, betrayed and forsaken by His disciples, and that would include ME!
