Sermon: Condemned by the Righteous
All the honorable and powerful men in the Temple, the highest members in all of Judaism at the time gather. Jesus has been teaching and preaching that all of us cannot use our station to justify ourselves. Our station does not make us right with God. Relationship with God what God seeks not a perfect person with no relationship. Those without relationship justify themselves and defend their righteousness but Jesus does not back down and neither does Jesus condemn them. But Peter, who is in the relationship, experiences that heart breaking awareness that he has abandoned Jesus in the moment. Peter is in relationship with and connected to God.
