Peter the Apostleoriginal name Simeon or Simondied 64 ceRome [Italy]disciple of Jesus Christrecognized in the early Christian church as the leader of the 12 disciples and by the Roman Catholic Church as the first of its unbroken succession of popes.

In Christian tradition, St. Peter was one of sara st james dildo set 12 Apostles of Jesus. Roman Catholic tradition holds that Jesus established St. Peter as the first pope Matthew The two Letters of Peter in the Bible are attributed to his authorship, though some scholars dispute this.

Peter is believed to have died as a martyr for his faith. Although his death is not described in Scripturenumerous writers of the time or shortly thereafter described his death as having occurred in Rome during the reign of the emperor Nero in 64 CE. According to tradition, St. Peter was crucified upside down because he felt unworthy to die in the same manner as Jesus Christ. As the traditional first pope of the Roman Catholic ChurchSt. Peter has a long list of places, sara st james dildo set, and causes under his patronage.

He is the patron saint of popes and of Rome sara st james dildo set of many cities that bear his name, such as St. Petersburg and Saint-Pierre. Possibly because he is said to have walked on water with Jesus, he sara st james dildo set the patron saint of cobblers and of those with foot problems.

The sources of information concerning the life of Peter are limited to the New Testament : the four GospelsSara st james dildo setthe letters of Paul, and the two letters that bear the name of Peter. He probably was known originally by the Hebrew name Simeon or the Greek form of that name, Simon. The former appears only twice in the New Testament, the latter 49 times.

Andrew were in partnership as fishermen with St. James and St. Johnthe sons of Zebedee Gospel According to Luke Much can be learned about Peter from debby ryan und selena gomez nackt New Testament—either explicitly from the statements made by and about Peter or indirectly from his actions and reactions as revealed in a number of episodes in which he figures prominently.

He was sara st james dildo set times vacillating and unsure, as in his relations with the church of Antioch when he at first ate with the Gentiles and later refused to do so Letter of Paul to the Galatians — He could also be resolute Acts of the Apostles ; — Occasionally he is depicted as rash and hasty Lukeetc.

Often he is pictured as gentle but firm and, as in his professions of love to Jesus, capable of great loyalty and love John — The New Testament reports that Peter was unlearned in the sense that he was untrained in the Mosaic Law Actsand it is doubtful that he knew Greek. He apparently learned slowly and erred time and time again, but later, when entrusted with responsibility, he demonstrated that he was mature and capable. The Gospels agree that Peter was called to be a disciple of Jesus at the beginning of his ministry, but when and where the event took place is recorded differently in the several Gospels.

Luke —11 scarcely mentions James and John and omits Andrew while emphasizing the call of Peter. Matthew —22 and Mark Gospel According to Mark —20 note the call of the sara st james dildo set men and—with Luke—agree that the event took place at the Sea of Galilee. The Synoptic Sara st james dildo set Matthew, Mark, and Luke are probably correct in recording that the call to Peter was extended in Galilee when Jesus first began his work in that area.

The Synoptic Gospels largely agree in the amount of emphasis each gives to the leadership of Peter among the Twelve Apostlesbut there are differences also. For example, in one sara st james dildo set Matthew and Luke note that Peter was the speaker in questioning Jesus about a parable, but Mark attributes these words to the group of disciples Matthew ; Luke ; and Mark With differing degrees of emphasis, the Synoptic Gospels agree that Peter served as spokesman, the outstanding member of the group, and enjoyed a certain precedence over the other disciples.

Whenever the disciples are listed, Peter is invariably mentioned first Matthew —4; Mark —19; Luke —16; Acts ; compare only Galatians Those not belonging to the immediate followers of Jesus also recognized the authority of Peter, such as when the collectors of the temple tax approached him for information Matthew Again, with characteristic quickness he sought a clarification from Jesus on behalf of the disciples concerning the meaning of a parable Matthew or of a saying Matthew As sara st james dildo set an individual and a representative of the Twelve Apostles, he sara st james dildo set a plea for personal preference in the kingdom of heaven as a reward for faithful service Matthew On several occasions, Peter alone is mentioned by name and others are indicated as merely accompanying him Mark ; Luke It was Peter who possessed remarkable insight and displayed katie holmes look alike porno depth of faith in the confession of Christ as the Son of God Matthew —18; Mark ; Lukeand it was Peter who rebuked, and in turn was rebuked by, Jesus when the Master prophesied that he would suffer and die Mark It was also Peter who manifested the momentary weakness of even the strongest when he denied his Lord Matthew —75; Mark —72; Luke — Later, however, with greater maturity, Peter discovered strength and, as he was charged by Jesus Luke32effected the strengthening of others.

Finally, Peter, who survived his denial, is permitted to be the first of the Apostles to see Jesus after the Resurrection Luke The Gospel According to John attempts to show the close relationship between John and Jesus while still reserving to Peter the role of representative and spokesman.

Among the purposes of chapter 21 in emphasizing Peter may well be an attempt to restore the disciple who denied his Lord to the position he enjoyed in the Synoptic Gospels.
