Gospel According to Pop: Episode 9 (How to Save a Life: The Fray)

A meditation where Peter remembers his favorite memories with Jesus and wonders if there was anything else he could have done to prevent his friend from dying. I imagine that this is the emotion that Peter would have had after Jesus' death. Like the feeling of helplessness, doubt and shame many friends feel after the suicide, the steps you are supposed to take to try to prevent suicide match very closely to Peter's sometimes insubordinate interactions with Jesus before his death. They caused me to think of Peter less as a bumbling disciple who always had the wrong answer to Jesus' questions and more as a good friend trying to prevent the eminent death of a loved one.

Take a look and see what you think:
