“After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. So Jesus said to the Twelve, ‘Do you want to go away as well?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God’” – John 6:66-69.
PETER’S WORDS IN the last verse are as striking and revelatory as when he declared who Jesus is – “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16).
