Eyewitnesses to Jesus’ life, Peter among them, verified what really happened. We see Jesus through the eyes of Peter and other disciples who testify to the truth through stories such as the Transfiguration, where God declares Jesus to be His true Son, Peter spent three years with Jesus, observing His miracles and ingesting His teaching. When Jesus asked,  “Who do you say that I am?” Peter confessed that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Peter was in the center of the action the days just before Jesus’ arrest and death. Peter’s denial was the low point of his life, yet Jesus forgave him and chose him to be a missionary of the Good News. God used this flawed men, Peter, to establish the credibility of Jesus for future generations. Peter gives specific and clear testimony about Jesus’ life and teachings. Add Peter’s testimony to other Bible writers and we have detailed eyewitness accounts that serve as the foundation of our faith.

2 Peter 1:16

For we have not been telling you fairy tales when we explained to you the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and his coming again. My own eyes have seen his splendor and his glory (KAB)
