John 18:27 ” Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.”

Several Chapters earlier in John, Jesus had rebuked Peter’s  declaration of  solidarity  –  even to the point of dying with Jesus, by saying,  “Will you really lay down your life for Me?  I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown Me three times.”  The moment that rooster crowed,  Peter realized just how fickle the human race could be.  And as the sound of the crowing continued, Peter began to sink deeply into fear and grief as  tears fell…for he profoundly  realized – he had disowned the Lord.
