MATTHEW 4:18-20- WHILE WALKING BY THE SEA OF GALILEE, HE SAW TWO BROTHERS, SIMON (WHO IS CALLED PETER) AND ANDREW HIS BROTHER, CASTING A NET INTO THE SEA, FOR THEY WERE FISHERMAN.  AND HE SAID TO THEM, FOLLOW ME, AND I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF HUMANS.  IMMEDIATELY THEY LEFT THEIR NETS AND FOLLOWED HIM.  

 

JOHN 1:44- NOW PHILIP WAS FROM BETHSAIDA, THE CITY OF ANDREW AND PETER. 

 

LUKE 4:38- AND HE AROSE AND LEFT THE SYNAGOGUE AND ENTERED SIMON’S HOUSE.  NOW SIMON’S MOTHER-IN-LAW WAS ILL WITH A HIGH FEVER, AND THEY APPEALED TO HIM ON HER BEHALF.  AND HE STOOD OVER HER AND REBUKED THE FEVER, AND IT LEFT HER, IMMEDIATELY SHE ROSE AND BEGAN TO SERVE THEM.  

 

JOHN 1:40-42- ONE OF THE TWO WHO HEARD JOHN SPEAK AND FOLLOWED JESUS WAS ANDREW, SIMON PETER’S BROTHER.  HE FIRST FOUND HIS BROTHER SIMON AND SAID TO HIM, WE HAVE FOUND THE MESSIAH (WHICH MEANS CHRIST).  HE BROUGHT HIM TO JESUS.  JESUS LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID, YOU ARE SIMON THE SON OF JOHN.  YOU SHALL BE CALLED CEPHAS (WHICH MEANS PETER). 

 

LUKE 5:4-8- AND WHEN HE HAD FINISHED SPEAKING, HE SAID TO SIMON, PUT OUT INTO THE DEEP AND LET DOWN YOUR NETS FOR A CATCH.  AND SIMON ANSWERED, MASTER, WE TOILED ALL NIGHT AND TOOK NOTHING!  BUT AT YOUR WORD I WILL LET DOWN THE NETS.  AND WHEN THEY HAD DONE THIS, THEY ENCLOSED A LARGE NUMBER OF FISH, AND THEIR NETS WERE BREAKING.  THEY SIGNALED TO THEIR PARTNERS IN THE OTHER BOAT TO COME AND HELP THEM.  AND THEY CAME AND FILLED BOTH THE BOATS, SO THEY BEGAN TO SINK.  BUT WHEN SIMON PETER SAW IT, HE FELL DOWN AT JESUS’ KNEES, SAYING, DEPART FROM ME, FOR I AM A SINFUL MAN, O LORD.  

 

MATTHEW 14:26-31- BUT WHEN THE DISCIPLES SAW HIM WALKING ON THE SEA, THEY WERE TERRIFIED, AND SAID, IT IS A GHOST!  AND THEY CRIED OUT IN FEAR.  BUT IMMEDIATELY JESUS SPOKE TO THEM, SAYING, TAKE HEART; IT IS I.  DO NOT BE AFRAID.  AND PETER ANSWERED HIM, LORD, IF IT IS YOU, COMMAND ME TO COME TO YOU ON THE WATER.  HE SAID, COME.  SO PETER GOT OUT OF THE BOAT AND WALKED ON THE WATER AND CAME TO JESUS.  BUT WHEN HE SAW THE WIND, HE WAS AFRAID, AND BEGINNING TO SINK HE CRIED OUT, LORD, SAVE ME.  JESUS IMMEDIATELY REACHED OUT HIS HAND AND TOOK HOLD OF HIM, SAYING TO HIM, O YOU OF LITTLE FAITH, WHY DID YOU DOUBT?  

 

MARK 8:27-29- AND JESUS WENT ON WITH HIS DISCIPLES TO THE VILLAGES OF CAESAREA PHILIPPI.  AND ON THE WAY HE ASKED HIS DISCIPLES, WHO DO PEOPLE SAY THAT I AM?  AND THEY TOLD HIM, JOHN THE BAPTIST; AND OTHERS SAY, ELIJAH; AND OTHERS, ONE OF THE PROPHETS.  AND HE ASKED THEM, BUT WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?  PETER ANSWERED HIM, YOU ARE THE CHRIST.  

 

MARK 8:31-33- AND HE BEGAN TO TEACH THEM THAT THE SON OF MAN MUST SUFFER MANY THINGS AND BE REJECTED BY THE ELDERS AND THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND THE SCRIBES AND BE KILLED, AND AFTER THREE DAYS RISE AGAIN.  AND HE SAID THIS PLAINLY.  AND PETER TOOK HIM ASIDE AND BEGAN TO REBUKE HIM.  BUT TURNING AND SEEING HIS DISCIPLES, HE REBUKED PETER AND SAID, GET BEHIND ME, SATAN!  FOR YOU ARE NOT SETTING YOUR MIND ON THE THINGS OF GOD, BUT ON THE THINGS OF HUMANS.  

 

MATTHEW 17:1-8- AND AFTER SIX DAYS JESUS TOOK WITH HIM PETER AND JAMES, AND JOHN HIS BROTHER, AND LED THEM UP A HIGH MOUNTAIN BY THEMSELVES.  AND HE WAS TRANSFIGURED BEFORE THEM, AND HIS FACE SHONE LIKE THE SUN, AND HIS CLOTHES BECAME WHITE AS LIGHT.  AND BEHOLD, THERE APPEARED TO THEM MOSESE AND ELIJAH, TALKING WITH HIM.  AND PETER SAID TO JESUS, LORD, IT IS GOOD THAT WE ARE HERE.  IF YOU WISH, I WILL MAKE THREE TENTS HERE, ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR MOSES AND ONE FOR ELIJAH.  HE WAS STILL SPEAKING WHEN, BEHOLD, A BRIGHT CLOUD OVERSHADOWED THEM, AND A VOICE FROM THE CLOUD SAID, THIS IS MY BELOVED SON, WITH WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED; LISTEN TO HIM.  WHEN THE DISCIPLES HEARD THIS, THEY FELL ON THEIR FACES  AND WERE TERRIFIED.  BUT JESUS CAME AND TOUCHED THEM, SAYING, RISE, AND HAVE NO FEAR.  AND WHEN THEY LIFTED UP THEIR EYES, THEY SAW NO ONE BUT JESUS ONLY.  

 

MARK 14:26-31- AND WHEN THEY HAD SUNG A HYMN, THEY WENT OUT TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.  AND JESUS SAID TO THEM, YOU WILL ALL FALL AWAY, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, I WILL STRIKE THE SHEPHERD, AND THE SHEEP WILL BE SCATTERED.  BUT AFTER I AM RAISED UP, I WILL GO BEFORE YOU TO GALILEE.  PETER SAID TO HIM, EVEN THOUGH THEY ALL FALL AWAY, I WILL NOT.  AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, TRULY, I TELL YOU, THIS VERY NIGHT, BEFORE THE ROOSTER CROWS TWICE, YOU WILL DENY ME THREE TIMES.  BUT HE SAID EMPHATICALLY, IF I MUST DIE WITH YOU, I WILL NOT DENY YOU.  AND THEY ALL SAID THE SAME.  

 

JOHN 18:15-18, 25-27- SIMON PETER FOLLOWED JESUS, AND SO DID ANOTHER DISCIPLE, SINCE THAT DISCIPLE WAS KNOWN TO THE HIGH PRIEST, HE ENTERED WITH JESUS INTO THE COURTYARD OF THE HIGH PRIEST.  BUT PETER STOOD OUTSIDE AT THE DOOR.  SO THE OTHER DISCIPLE, WHO WAS KNOWN TO THE HIGH PRIEST, WENT OUT AND SPOKE TO THE SERVANT GIRL WHO KEPT WATCH AT THE DOOR, AND BROUGHT PETER IN.  THE SERVANT GIRL AT THE DOOR SAID TO PETER, YOU ALSO ARE NOT ONE OF THIS MAN’S DISCIPLES, ARE YOU?  HE SAID, I AM NOT.  NOW THE SERVANTS AND OFFICERS HAD MADE A CHARCOAL FIRE, BECAUSE IT WAS COLD, AND THEY WERE STANDING AND WARMING THEMSELVES.  PETER ALSO WAS WITH THEM, STANDING AND WARMING HIMSELF.  NOW SIMON PETER WAS STANDING AND WARMING HIMSELF.  SO THEY SAID TO HIM, YOU ALSO ARE NOT ONE OF HIS DISCIPLES, ARE YOU?  HE DENIED IT AND SAID, I AM NOT.  ONE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE HIGH PRIEST, A RELATIVE OF THE MAN WHOSE EAR PETER HAD CUT OFF, ASKED, DID I NOT SEE YOU IN THE GARDEN WITH HIM?  PETER AGAIN DENIED IT, AND AT ONCE THE ROOSTER CROWED. 

 

JOHN 21:15-23- WHEN THEY HAD FINISHED BREAKFAST, JESUS SAID TO SIMON PETER, SIMON, SON OF JOHN, DO YOU LOVE ME MORE THAN THESE?  HE SAID TO HIM, YES, LORD; YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU.  HE SAID TO HIM, FEED MY LAMBS.  HE SAID TO HIM A SECOND TIME, SIMON, SON OF JOHN, DO YOU LOVE ME?  HE SAID TO HIM, YES, LORD; YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU.  HE SAID TO HIM, TEND MY SHEEP.  HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, SIMON, SON OF JOHN, DO YOU LOVE ME?  PETER WAS GRIEVED BECAUSE HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, DO YOU LOVE ME?  AND HE SAID TO HIM, LORD, YOU KNOW EVERYTHING; YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU.  JESUS SAID TO HIM, FEED MY SHEEP.  TRULY, TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG, YOU USED TO DRESS YOURSELF AND WALK WHEREVER YOU WANTED, BUT WHEN YOU ARE OLD, YOU WILL STRETCH OUR YOUR HANDS, AND ANOTHER WILL DRESS YOU AND CARRY YOU WHERE YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO.  (THIS HE SAID TO SHOW BY WHAT KIND OF DEATH HE WAS TO GLORIFY GOD.) AND AFTER SAYING THIS HE SAID TO HIM, FOLLOW ME.  PETER TURNED AND SAW THE DISCIPLE WHOM JESUS LOVED FOLLOWING THEM, THE ONE WHO ALSO HAD LEANED BACK AGAINST HIM DURING THE SUPPER AND HAD SAID, LORD, WHO IS IT THAT IS GOING TO BETRAY YOU?  WHEN PETER SAW HIM, HE SAID TO JESUS, LORD, WHAT ABOUT THIS MAN?  JESUS SAID TO HIM, IF IT IS MY WILL THAT HE REMAIN UNTIL I COME, WHAT IS THAT TO YOU?  YOU FOLLOW ME!  SO THE SAYING SPREAD ABROAD AMONG THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAT THIS DISCIPLE WAS NOT TO DIE, YET JESUS DID NOT SAY TO THEM THAT HE WAS NOT TO DIE, BUT, IF IT IS MY WILL THAT HE REMAIN UNTIL I COME, WHAT IS THAT TO YOU?

 

ACTS 2:1-40- BUT PETER, STANDING WITH THE ELEVEN, LIFTED UP HIS VOICE AND ADDRESSED THEM: MEN AND WOMEN OF JUDEA AND ALL WHO WHO DWELL IN JERUSALEM, LET THIS BE KNOWN TO YOU, AND GIVE EAR TO MY WORDS.  FOR THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT DRUNK, AS YOU SUPPOSE, SINCE IT IS ONLY THE THIRD HOUR OF THE DAY.  BUT THIS IS WHAT WAS UTTERED THROUGH THE PROPHET JOEL: AND IN THE LAST DAYS IT SHALL BE, GOD DECLARES, THAT I WILL POUR OUT MY HOLY SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH, AND YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS; EVEN ON MY MALE AND FEMALE SERVANTS IN THOSE DAYS I WILL POUR OUT MY HOLY SPIRIT, AND THEY SHALL PROPHESY.  AND I WILL SHOW WONDERS IN THE HEAVENS ABOVE AND SIGNS IN THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE; THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED TO DARKNESS AND THE MOON TO BLOOD, BEFORE THE DAY OF THE LORD COMES, THE GREAT AND MAGNIFICENT DAY.  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.  MEN AND WOMEN OF ISRAEL, HEAR THESE WORDS: JESUS OF NAZARETH, A MAN ATTESTED TO YOU BY GOD WITH MIGHTY WORKS AND WONDERS  AND SIGNS THAT GOD DID THROUGH HIM IN YOUR MIDST, AS YOU YOURSELVES KNOW- THIS JESUS, DELIVERED UP ACCORDING TO THE DEFINITE PLAN AND FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD, YOU CRUCIFIED AND KILLED BY THE HANDS OF LAWLESS MEN.  GOD RAISED HIM UP, LOOSING THE PANGS OF DEATH, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE FOR HIM TO BE HELD BY IT.  FOR DAVID SAYS CONCERNING HIM, I SAW THE LORD ALWAYS BEFORE ME, FOR HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND THAT I MAY BE SHAKEN; THEREFORE MY HEART IS GLAD, AND MY TONGUE REJOICED; MY FLESH ALSO WILL DWELL IN HOPE.  FOR YOU WILL NOT ABANDON MY SOUL TO HADES, OR LET YOUR HOLY ONE SEE CORRUPTION.  YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO ME THE PATH OF LIFE; YOU WILL MAKE ME FULL OF GLADNESS WITH YOUR PRESENCE.  BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I MAY SAY TO YOU WITH CONFIDENCE ABOUT THE PATRIARCH DAVID THAT HE BOTH DIED AND WAS BURIED, AND HIS TOMB IS WITH US THIS DAY.  BEING THEREFORE A PROPHET, AND KNOWING THAT GOD HAD SWORN WITH AN OATH TO HIM THAT HE WOULD SET ONE OF HIS DESCENDANTS ON HIS THRONE, HE FORESAW AND SPOKE ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF THE CHRIST, THAT HE WAS NOT ABANDONED TO HADES, NOR DID HIS FLESH SEE CORRUPTION.  THIS JESUS GOD RAISED UP, AND OF THAT WE ARE ALL WITNESSES.  BEING THEREFORE EXALTED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, AND HAVING RECEIVED FROM THE FATHER THE PROMISE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, HE WAS POURED OUT THIS THAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE SEEING AND HEARING.  FOR DAVID DID NOT ASCEND INTO THE HEAVENS, BUT HE HIMSELF SAYS, THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES YOUR FOOTSTOOL.  LET ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL THEREFORE KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT GOD HAS MADE HIM BOTH LORD AND CHRIST, THIS JESUS WHOM YOU CRUCIFIED.  NOW WHEN THEY HEARD THIS THEY WERE CUT TO THE HEART, AND SAID TO PETER AND THE REST OF THE APOSTLES, BROTHERS, WHAT SHALL WE DO?  AND PETER SAID TO THEM, REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  FOR THE PROMISE IS FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR CHILDREN AND FOR ALL WHO ARE FAR OFF, EVERYONE WHOM THE LORD OUR GOD CALLS TO HIMSELF.  AND WITH MANY OTHER WORDS HE BORE WITNESS AND CONTINUED TO EXHORT THEM, SAYING, SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THIS CROOKED GENERATION.  SO THOSE WHO RECEIVED HIS WORD WERE BAPTIZED, AND THERE WERE ADDED THAT DAY ABOUT THREE THOUSAND SOULS.  

 

ACTS 3:11-26- WHILE HE CLUNG TO PETER AND JOHN, ALL THE PEOPLE, UTTERLY ASTOUNDED, RAN TOGETHER TO THEM IN THE PORTICO CALLED SOLOMON’S.  AND WHEN PETER SAW IT HE ADDRESSED THE PEOPLE: PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, WHY DO YOU WONDER AT THIS, OR WHY DO YOU STARE AT US, AS THOUGH BY OUR OWN POWER OR PIETY WE HAVE MADE HIM WALK?  THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB, THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS, GLORIFIED HIS SERVANT JESUS, WHOM YOU DELIVERED OVER AND DENIED IN THE PRESENCE OF PILATE, WHEN HE HAD DECIDED TO RELEASE HIM.  BUT YOU DENIED THE HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS ONE, AND ASKED FOR A MURDERER TO BE GRANTED TO YOU, AND YOU KILLED THE AUTHOR OF LIFE, WHOM GOD RAISED FROM THE DEAD.  TO THIS WE ARE WITNESSES.  AND HIS NAME- BY FAITH IN HIS NAME- HAS MADE THIS MAN STRONG WHOM YOU SEE AND KNOW, AND THE FAITH THAT IS THROUGH JESUS HAS GIVEN THE MAN THIS PERFECT HEALTH IN THE PRESENCE OF YOU ALL.  AND NOW, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I KNOW THAT YOU ACTED IN IGNORANCE, AS DID YOUR RULERS.  BUT WHAT GOD FORETOLD BY THE MOUTH OF ALL THE PROPHETS, THAT HIS CHRIST WOULD SUFFER, HE THUS FULFILLED.  REPENT THEREFORE, AND TURN BACK, THAT YOUR SINS MAY BE BLOTTED OUT, THAT TIMES OF REFRESHING MAY COME FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AND THAT HE MAY SEND THE CHRIST APPOINTED FOR YOU, JESUS, WHOM HEAVEN MUST RECEIVE UNTIL THE TIME FOR RESTORING ALL THE THINGS ABOUT WHICH GOD SPOKE BY THE MOUTH OF HIS HOLY PROPHETS LONG AGO.  MOSES SAID, THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR BROTHERS.  YOU SHALL LISTEN TO HIM IN WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU.  AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERY SOUL WHO DOES NOT LISTEN TO THAT PROPHET SHALL BE DESTROYED FROM THE PEOPLE.  AND ALL THE PROPHETS WHO HAVE SPOKEN, FROM SAMUEL AND THOSE WHO CAME AFTER HIM, ALSO PROCLAIMED THESE DAYS.  YOU ARE THE SONS OF PROPHETS AND OF THE COVENANT THAT GOD MADE WITH YOUR FATHERS, SAYING TO ABRAHAM, AND IN YOUR OFFSPRING SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.  GOD, HAVING RAISED UP HIS SERVANT, SENT HIM TO YOU FIRST, TO BLESS YOU BY TURNING EVERY ONE OF YOU FROM YOUR WICKEDNESS.  

 

ACTS 10:9-21- THE NEXT DAY, AS THEY WERE ON THEIR JOURNEY AND APPROACHING THE CITY, PETER WENT UP ON THE HOUSETOP ABOUT THE SIXTH HOUR TO PRAY.  AND HE BECAME HUNGRY AND WANTED SOMETHING TO EAT, BUT WHILE THEY WERE PREPARING IT, HE FELL INTO A TRANCE AND SAW THE HEAVENS OPENED AND SOMETHING LIKE A GREAT SHEET DESCENDING, BEING LET DOWN BY ITS FOUR CORNERS UPON THE EARTH.  IN IT WERE ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS AND REPTILES AND BIRDS OF THE AIR.  AND THERE CAME A VOICE TO HIM: RISE, PETER; KILL AND EAT.  BUT PETER SAID, BY NO MEANS, LORD; FOR I HAVE NEVER EATEN ANYTHING THAT IS COMMON OR UNCLEAN.  AND THE VOICE CAME TO HIM AGAIN A SECOND TIME, WHAT GOD HAS MADE CLEAN, DO NOT CALL COMMON.  THIS HAPPENED THREE TIMES, AND THE THING WAS TAKEN UP AT ONCE TO HEAVEN.  NOW WHILE PETER WAS INWARDLY PERPLEXED AS TO WHAT THE VISION THAT HE HAD SEEN MIGHT MEAN, BEHOLD, THE MEN WHO WERE SENT BY CORNELIUS, HAVING MADE INQUIRY FOR SIMON’S HOUSE, STOOD AT THE GATE AND CALLED OUT TO ASK WHETHER SIMON WHO WAS CALLED PETER WAS LODGING THERE.  AND WHILE PETER WAS PONDERING THE VISION, THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID TO HIM, BEHOLD, THREE MEN ARE LOOKING FOR YOU.  RISE AND GO DOWN AND ACCOMPANY THEM WITHOUT HESITATION, FOR I HAVE SENT THEM.  AND PETER WENT DOWN TO THE MEN AND SAID, I AM THE ONE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.  WHAT IS THE REASON FOR YOUR COMING?

 

ACTS 12:6-11- NOW WHEN HEROD WAS ABOUT TO BRING HIM OUT, ON THAT VERY NIGHT, PETER WAS SLEEPING BETWEEN TWO SOLDIERS, BOUND WITH TWO CHAINS, AND SENTRIES BEFORE THE DOOR WERE GUARDING THE PRISON.  AND BEHOLD, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD STOOD NEXT TO HIM, AND A LIGHT SHONE IN THE CELL.  HE STRUCK PETER ON THE SIDE AND WOKE HIM, SAYING, GET UP QUICKLY.  AND THE CHAINS FELL OFF HIS HANDS.  AND THE ANGEL SAID TO HIM, DRESS YOURSELF AND PUT ON YOUR SANDALS.  AND HE DID SO.  AND HE SAID TO HIM, WRAP YOUR CLOAK AROUND YOU AND FOLLOW ME.  AND HE WENT OUT AND FOLLOWED HIM.  HE DID NOT KNOW THAT WHAT WAS BEING DONE BY THE ANGEL WAS REAL, BUT THOUGHT HE WAS SEEING A VISION.  WHEN THEY HAD PASSED THE FIRST AND SECOND GUARD, THEY CAME TO THE IRON GATE LEADING INTO THE CITY.  IT OPEDED FOR THEM OF ITS OWN ACCORD, AND THEY WENT OUT AND WENT ALONG THE STREET, AND IMMEDIATELY THE ANGEL LEFT HIM.  WHEN PETER CAME TO HIMSELF HE SAID, NOW I AM SURE THAT THE LORD HAS SENT HIS ANGEL AND RESCUED ME FROM THE HAND OF HEROD AND FROM ALL THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE EXPECTING.  

 

GALATIANS 2:11-14- BUT WHEN CEPHAS CAME TO ANTIOCH, I OPPOSED HIM TO HIS FACE, BECAUSE HE STOOD CONDEMNED.  FOR BEFORE CERTAIN MEN CAME FROM JAMES, HE WAS SITTING WITH THE GENTILES, BUT WHEN THEY CAME HE DREW BACK AND SEPARATED HIMSELF, FEARING THE CIRCUMCISION PARTY.  AND THE REST OF THE JEWS ACTED HYPOCRITICALLY ALONG WITH HIM, SO THAT EVEN BARNABAS WAS LED ASTRAY BY THEIR HYPOCRISY,  BUT WHEN I SAW THAT THEIR CONDUCT WAS NOT IN STEP WITH THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL, I SAID TO CEPHAS BEFORE THEM ALL, IF YOU, THOUGH A JEW, LIVE LIKE A GENTILE AND NOT LIKE A JEW, HOW CAN YOU FORCE GENTILES TO LIVE LIKE YOU.
