Peter grew up Jewish. Since the time he was a little boy, he knew that God would someday fulfill the Old Testament's greatest prophesy - the Messiah who would come to deliver His people. No doubt, Peter, along with most other Jewish people, hoped it would happen in his lifetime. Peter was fishing when Jesus came and extended an invitation to follow Him. Peter accepted, but somehow, I don't think he was prepared for this calling that would turn his ordinary life into an extraordinary adventure.
Peter is one of those biblical characters we can relate to. Peter was real and he made plenty of mistakes, but in the end, his love and devotion to Jesus was unsurpassed.

"What priceless treasures can be found within these pages! Never has a Bible study caused my heart to leap in the presence of God as this one. Working through this study with Sheryl Pellatiro is like traveling the world with your most trusted and beloved friend. I laugh, ponder, and cry, but most importantly, I've fallen more in love with God's Word as I've discovered how significant Peter's life is to my own."
