Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16) | Craft 2

It’s a really simple craft and the only time consuming part is backing it onto thick card. Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16) | Craft 2

Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16)-Play


This is a passage a lot of people would rather skim, we don’t want to portray the angry Jesus who slings things like calling someone a devil. But this passage is so important to understanding not only Peter but the way the people of God could move from adoring crowds to chanting crucify. At the root of this passage Peter gets it wrong on the back of declaring Jesus the Messiah, his great high and painful low clashing back to back.

Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16) | Craft 1


As we journey through Peter’s ups and downs it’s clear that his bravery to speak from the heart both earns his accolades and dumps him in hot water too. here Peter gets it wrong clearly. This passage is one that really seems odd until you consider the background, Peter knew what a messiah looked like – he’s be a king, a warrior, a savour to his people with the power of God behind him – Jesus decimates that idea pretty quickly. This isn’t a complex craft and lends itself well to groups who like the colouring process or those who want a craft in a hurry. Peter gets it wrong (Matthew 16) | Craft 1

Essential Teachers notes:
A huge part of understanding scripture comes from understanding the context that it’s played out in. In passages like this where Peter challenges Jesus’ planned schedule as absurd, we have to see the wider picture to understand the actions of the characters. This shift in Jesus’ teaching is totally incompatible with the expectations and teachings of a coming Messiah and Peter putting his foot in it is a very predictable response. It’s easy to make Peter look like a fool or a man of weak faith in this conversation but neither is true. By understanding why he had trouble grasping this concept we also shed light on why the religious leaders lead Jesus to his death.
