Tree of Life Day 59: Luke 22-23

As the historian, Luke was most concerned with getting all the facts and all the right pieces into the right places.  The thing that haunts me from Luke 22 is v.61.
The Lord turned and looked at Peter.
What did that look hold?  What did it mean to Jesus?  To Peter?

It came on the heels of betrayal.  We know that Peter went and wept bitterly.  We know that Jesus went to the cross.  He went to the cross because of denials just like Peter.  Because He sees every sin and knows everything and looks at us in our sin - and still went to the cross.
