Peter's Denial -
Original painting: unavailableāsold
Artist Commentary: Simon Bar Jonah loves Jesus, but does not understand himself. He is often brave and considers himself to be very strong. The Lord has renamed him "Peter", "Kepha", meaning "rock." When the time of ultimate testing comes, however, he is astonished and horrified to find himself ruled by fear, denying that he knows Jesus. Yet he repents....and in this repentance are the seeds of the man who will become the rock on which the Church is built.
