This radio show is a ministry of Cloverdale United Reformed Church where Russell Herman is the teaching pastor. Today’s teaching begins the discussion of Mark 14:66-72.

Section Text (NIV)

66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by. 67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him.

“You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus,” she said.

68 But he denied it. “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about,” he said, and went out into the entryway.

69 When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, “This fellow is one of them.” 70 Again he denied it.

After a little while, those standing near said to Peter, “Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.”

71 He began to call down curses, and he swore to them, “I don’t know this man you’re talking about.”

72 Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice[i] you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.


Russell Herman has been the Pastor at Cloverdale United Reformed Church since August 2014. He earned degrees from Northwestern College (B.A. with majors in social studies & mathematics), Dordt College (M.Ed.), and Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary (M.Div.).
