Peter, James, and John


Peter, James, and John were the inner circle of Jesus. They had the privilege of being with Jesus on special occasions when the other apostles missed such events.
1. When Jesus raised Jairus’ daughter, “He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James” (Mk 5:37; Lk 8:51).
2. Jesus allowed only Peter, James, and John to experience his
transfiguration on a mountain (Mt 17:1; Mk 9:2; Lk 9:28).
3. When Jesus prayed at Gethsemane before his passion, “He took along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to feel sorrow and distress” (Mt 26:37).
