Peter and Paul, apostles of Jesus

Today we celebrate Peter and Paul, the greatest leaders of the early Jesus movement.  They sacrificed assumptions, religious prejudices, and even their lives, to be true to their experience of Jesus. We celebrate them still, though they would not have wanted anyone to speak well of them, only to be true. Why do people accept falsehood?  Peter and Paul would probably say it’s because they haven’t found the truth yet.  Peter and Paul died to share the truth about life, as they had heard it from Jesus, and as they had experienced it in him.  I’m glad they did.
