Peter imitated Jesus in other ways too. The church tradition tells us that he took on his own disciple, John Mark, and it was Peter’s stories to John Mark that make up the Gospel according to Mark. Our church tradition also tells us that Peter followed Jesus all the way to his death- being martyred for his faith on a cross. The church historian tells us that Peter decided that he was unfit to die like his Master should die, and asked that his cross be placed upside down- and the Roman centurions honored his request.
Jesus invites you and me: will you respond to His invitation?
