Mark 14: 66-72
66While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by. 67When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him. “You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus,” she said. 68But he denied it. “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about,” he said, and went out into the entryway. 69When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, “This fellow is one of them.” 70Again he denied it. After a little while, those standing near said to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.” 71He began to call down curses, and he swore to them, “I don’t know this man you’re talking about.” 72Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
Peter made a bad decision (he denied knowing his friend, Jesus) because of all the distractions and difficulties in the world around him. People and their criticisms, threats, opinions, etc. caused most of this fear for Peter. The same fear is still with us today. We want everyone to think the best of us, but all of the influences of people in our lives affect this.
In my station, I have tried to show people and events thru the ages that can cause us to make bad decisions. The silhouette of Peter’s head stands out from the misted background, as do the three roosters. The words of denial (No, No, No) are in red to emphasize the fear in them.
I had never worked with collage before, and am very happy with the results. I hope everyone will enjoy it.
