John 13:37 ” Peter asked, ‘ Lord, why can’t I follow You now? I will lay down my life for You.’ “

Jesus had just told the Disciples that where He was going, they couldn’t go with.  Was Simon Peter hurt, or smugly contending that he would proudly die along side Jesus when he asked why?  Peter was one of Jesus’ closest Disciples, a big, loud man who had a habit of speaking first and thinking later.  Was his outburst a show of hurt feelings, or brash vibrato…of concerned protection, or a foot in the mouth quip?
