….the disciple Peter buckled at this point. Peter was tough, spontaneous, and took no bullshit from anyone…yet after the crucifixion, when the mob was really pumped up, Peter denied being a follower—three times. His belief became too much of a liability. But, I like Peter because he had flaws just like the rest of us. He was really just a blue-collar, neighborhood leader. He was the Bruce Springsteen of Galilee, a denim-wearing factory worker. He wore a robe with his bowling league embroidered on the back. They don’t mention that in the Bible.
