Lesson 26: “To This End Was I Born”

New Testament Class Member Study Guide, (1997), 15


  • What did Peter do when people outside Caiaphas’s palace said that he knew Jesus? (See Matthew 26:69–75; see also verse Matthew 26:34.) How do some of us, like Peter, sometimes deny our faith? What can we learn from Peter’s life after he denied the Lord?

  • How do you feel when you ponder the Savior’s suffering in your behalf? How can you show your gratitude for the Atonement? (As you ponder these questions, you may want to record your thoughts in your journal.)
