A Trial of Our Own Making
Chronological Life of Jesus - 146 (with reference to Matthew 26:57-75; Mark 14:53-72; Luke 22:54-71). While Jesus was being dragged into an illegal and unfair trial designed to condemn an innocent man, Peter was entering a trial of his own making. It wasn't that he failed so much as what he did to set himself up for failure. Sometimes what we think we are doing for God we are doing for ourselves.
