This is an 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Apostles of Jesus – Peter. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
We find the names of the 12 apostles of Jesus the Christ in: Matthew 10:2-4, Mark 3:14-19 and Luke 6:13-16. “And when day came, he called his disciples and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas [also called Thaddeus or Jude] the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.” (ESV)
Each of these men sacrificed everything to follow the Lord. In Luke 18:28, their spokesman Peter said, "We have left all we had to follow you!" (NIV) They gave up family, friends, homes, jobs, and all things familiar to answer Christ's call. They formed the foundation of the Christian church, initiating a movement that steadily spread across the face of the earth.
Without question, Peter (or Simon) was the leader of the group. Often the spokesman for the 12, he stands out in the Gospels. Whenever the men are listed, Peter's name is first. He is the only Peter mentioned in the New Testament. Peter was a rough and tumble man whose emotions often got him into trouble, and yet he was clearly one of the favorites of Jesus Christ, who loved him for his big heart. One minute he was walking on water by faith, and the next he was sinking in doubts. Impulsive and emotional, Peter is best known for denying Jesus when on the eve of Jesus crucifixion. As a disciple, he was dearly loved by Christ, holding a special place among the 12.
Passionate until the end, historians record that when Peter was sentenced to death by crucifixion, he requested that his head be turned toward the ground because he did not feel worthy to die in the same manner as his Savior. Peter was crucified head down by request, in Rome and both Peter and Paul, died on the same day.
