In Pursuit of Peter is a six-part series that visits the places Peter lived and traveled, exploring how Jesus slowly transformed this uneducated fisherman's life.
Part 1: The Man and the Sea
A fisherman from the Sea of Galilee has his world disrupted when he meets Jesus. Immediately Jesus changes the man's name from Simon to Peter, meaning "Rock." But Peter doesn't understand why. The answer would be revealed over the next few years.
Part 2: Who Is This Man?
As a disciple, Peter had a front row seat to Jesus's teaching and miracles. They altered Peter's paradigm of who Jesus is and the kingdom He came to build.
Part 3: Hope of Messiah
Knowing Jesus is the Messiah, Peter anticipates a Jewish kingdom and the conquest of Roman occupiers. But when Jesus is arrested, Peter panics: he denies knowing the Lord. Flooded with grief, his hope is renewed when Jesus restores him.
Part 4: Hope for the Nations
After Jesus departs for heaven and the Spirit arrives to indwell all who believe in Him, Peter's rocklike boldness emerges. Three thousand people from around the Roman world respond in faith, and Peter becomes the foundational leader of the new "Jesus movement."
Part 5: New Horizons
After Peter leads the church in Jerusalem for a decade, his role changes. As an eyewitness to Jesus's life, he moves across the Mediterranean world reminding troubled followers that this world is not their home.
Part 6: Veneration
Peter's final destination is Rome, the center of world influence. From there he writes his last words-words to live by and words to die by. Crucified by Emperor Nero, Peter leaves an incalculable contribution to the Christian faith.
