Previous StationNext Station

James Jacques Tissot (French painter and illustrator, 1836-1902), "The Third Denial of Peter. Jesus' Look of Reproach (Le troisième reniement de Saint Pierre. Le regard de reproche de Jésus)" (1884-1896), Opaque watercolor over graphite on gray wove paper, 
23.2 x 19.7 cm, Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY.
Matthew 26:69-75 (NIV)

"69 Now Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, and a servant girl came to him. 'You also were with Jesus of Galilee,' she said.

70 But he denied it before them all. 'I don't know what you're talking about,' he said.

71 Then he went out to the gateway, where another girl saw him and said to the people there, 'This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth.'

72 He denied it again, with an oath: 'I don't know the man!'

73 After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, 'Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away.'

74 Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, 'I don't know the man!'

Immediately a rooster crowed. 75 Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: 'Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.' And he went outside and wept bitterly."
