√ Denied even knowing JESUS.
(Matthew 26:31-35 NLT) On the way, Jesus told them, "Tonight all of you will desert me. . . . . "Peter declared, "Even if everyone else deserts you, I will neverdesert you." Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, Peter--this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me." "No!" Peter insisted. "Even if I have to die with you, I will never deny you!" And all the other disciples vowed the same.
