There’s another famous three: 3 times P D K J.
While Jesus was on trial before the religious leaders, out in the courtyard Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples, was warming his hands by the fire.
A servant girl came up to him and said, “Weren’t you one of Jesus’ followers?” Peter replied, “I don’t know what you are talking about” and walked away. A little later, she said to those standing nearby, “That man was of the disciples” but again Peter denied it.
Not long after, those in the crowd said, “You were with that Jesus. You are one of his followers.” Peter said, “I don’t know Jesus. I’ve never been one of his followers.”
“Immediately the cock crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the cock crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.” (Mark 14:72)
Just as Jesus said he would. Peter denied knowing Jesus 3 times. We’ll find out what happened to Peter later on in the story, but for now, it’s time to leave Peter weeping and join Jesus as He appears before Pilate.
