Lesson Review – Matthew 26:69-75 – Peter Denies Jesus


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 26:69-75 – Peter Denies Jesus.

This is lesson 36 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 114 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 36 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

So often we, like Peter, think we can follow Jesus in our own strength. The truth is, even though we think we would do better, we are just like Peter. Like Peter, we need God to open our eyes to our sinful condition. What an amazing display of love, that Jesus would go to the cross willingly even while those closest to him disowned him.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

Jesus was arrested and put on trial. During Jesus’ trial, Peter was confronted about his connection to Jesus and he denied him three times.

Questions For You Kids

Who arrested Jesus?

Jesus was arrested by the chief priests and the teachers of the law.

What was the Lord’s warning to Peter?

Jesus told Peter that he would deny him three times that night. It was a warning to Peter not to be too confident in his own strength.

Why did Peter deny Jesus?

Peter was afraid of getting into trouble for being Jesus’ friend, so he said he didn’t know Jesus.

What does it tell us about Jesus that he could tell what was going to happen before it happened?

Jesus is all-knowing. He is God. He knows all things and controls all things [Colossians 1:15– 19].

Praying Together

Take a moment to pray together. Thank God for sending his Son to die for us, even though we are a lot like Peter. Ask God to strengthen us to be his witnesses in the world.
