Good News According To Peter

Peter is considered the founder of the Catholic Church headquartered in Rome (although he grew up in Israel).

Saint Peter was one of Twelve Apostles, chosen by Jesus from his first disciples. He was a Jewish fisherman assigned a leadership role by Jesus (Matthew 16:18).

Peter was from “Beth saida”, this means home of the fisherman.

Several letters in the New Testament bear his name and he discipled Mark. The Gospel According to Mark was influenced by Peter.

See 1 Peter, 2 Peter and the Gospel According to Mark.

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

1 Peter 3:15-16
