“I DON’T KNOW THE MAN”
When Peter was confronted by a servant girl in the courtyard, he denied that he knew Jesus.
“It was a denial, but it was also the truth. Peter really did not know who Jesus was, did not really know, and neither do any of us really know who Jesus is either. Beyond all we can find to say about him and believe about him, he remains always beyond our grasp, except maybe once in a while the hem of his garment. We should never forget that. We can love him, we can learn from him, but we can come to know him only by following him — by searching for him in his church, in his Gospels, in each other.” – Frederick Buechner
