Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture/Principles are Aims for each Division):

1.Judas guides soldiers to Jesus, Peter cuts off the High Priest’s servant’s ear and Jesus is taken to Annas (1-14)

Principle: Obedience to God’s plan, though sometimes painful, glorifies God and is best for us.

2.Peter and another disciple follow Jesus, where Peter denies being His disciple (15-18)

Principle: Following Jesus is a challenge that draws us closer to Christ.

3.The High Priest questions Jesus then sends Him, bound to Caiaphas (19-24)

Principle: Jesus handles interrogation and abuse with grace and dignity – an example believers should prepare to follow.

4.Peter denies being Christ’s disciple and being with Him in the garden then the rooster begins to crow (25-27)

Principle: Denying Christ can be tempting when we’re afraid, so believers must prepare to answer for the hope we have in Jesus.


Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure showing exactly where you are in Scripture):

Arrested Jesus is questioned and Peter denies Him three times.


Aim (“To Cause My Audience To…” Know, See, etc.):

TCMATK Following Jesus is surprising, costly and challenging, resulting in a deeply meaningful and fulfilling relationship with Christ.

Jesus calls believers to follow Him…


Application (not yes or no question.  Meant to bring about life change):

1.Where do you turn and what do you do when things don’t go as you planned?

2.How have you followed Jesus so far and what preparations have you made/will you make so you don’t give up following Him when the path is difficult and may cost you much?

3.What questions do you have about Jesus’ teaching and what path will you take to resolve those questions?

How have you prepared yourself to respond to interrogation and abuse heaped on you because of your faith?

4.In what areas of your life are you not a “sold out” disciple of Christ and what will you do today to change that?

How would you counsel a Christian friend who fears she has disappointed Christ?
