▪ Saint Peter was born 1 AD in Bethsaida,


Syria

▪ His original name was Simon, Peter being a


name given to him by Jesus. At this time he
was a grown man.

▪ We know little about his early life except


that he came from the village of Bethsaida
in Galilee and that his father was a
fisherman
▪ By the time he met and joined Jesus, he was
already married and he lacked any
formal education
ROLE IN THE EARLY CHURCH
▪ Peter's role was based around his gifts for
taking care of those in need.

▪ Peter had an authority that superseded that


of the other apostles.
▪ Peter was their spokesman at several events,
he conducted the election of Matthias, his
opinion in the debate over converting
Gentiles was crucial.
▪ Peter is always listed first among the Twelve
Apostles in the gospels and in the Book of Acts.
▪ He is also frequently mentioned in the gospels as
forming with James the Elder and John, which is a
special group within the Twelve Apostles, they
were present at incidents at which the others were
not present, such as at the Transfiguration of Jesus.
▪ Peter often confesses his faith in Jesus as the
Messiah.
▪ Peter is often depicted in the gospels as
the spokesman of all the Apostles. Catholics refer to
Peter as the chief of the Apostles
▪ In John's gospel, Peter is the first person to enter the
empty tomb, although the women and the beloved
disciple saw it before him.
▪ Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians contains a list of
resurrection appearances of Jesus, the first of which is
an appearance to Peter. Here, Paul apparently follows an
early tradition that Peter was the first to see the risen
Christ.
▪ Peter, in one of the resurrection appearances of Jesus,
three times affirmed his love for Jesus, balancing his
threefold denial, and Jesus reconfirmed Peter's position.
The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter on the Sea of
Galilee is seen as the traditional site where Jesus Christ
appeared to his disciples after his resurrection. And,
according to Catholic tradition, established Peter's
supreme jurisdiction over the Christian church.
▪ The Roman Martyrology
assigned the 29th of June
as the feast day of both
Peter and Paul, without
thereby declaring that to
be the day of their deaths.

▪ Before Pope John the


23rd's revision in 1960, the
Roman Calendar also
included on the 18th of
January another feast
for Saint Peter.
CRUCIFIXION AND DEATH
▪ He Died between 64 and 68 AD 62–67 years
old

▪ Peter was Crucified upsidedown because he


felt he wasn't worthy to be crucified the same
way as Jesus Christ.
