Simon Peter: Flawed but faithful disciple
Peter is the disciple who speaks up boldly and courageously, the one who’s mentioned by name far more in the gospels than any other disciple. Yet he’s also the one who gets it wrong, who falters, who misunderstands, who even denies Jesus. Simon Peter is the one who’s most like you and me, and like everyone else who seeks to follow Jesus. Simon Peter is the flawed, but ultimately faithful, disciple.
