13 Aposol Peter hem wanfala elder wea staka Christian long first century savve gud long hem. Hem gudfala fren bilong Jesus and Jesus markem hem for duim olketa important waka. (Matt. 16:19) Olsem example, long 36 C.E., Peter preach long Cornelius and olketa wea stap long haos bilong hem.

Long mek-tu leta bilong hem, hem sei Paul hem ‘brata bilong iumi wea iumi lovem.’ (2 Pet. 3:15) Masbi wanem Peter duim hem mekem olketa Christian wea no Jew for feel nogud tumas.

(Eph. 1:22) Samting wea happen mekem olketa brata and sista garem chance for showimaot olketa followim example bilong Jesus and Dadi bilong hem for forgivim Peter. Iumi hope olketa Christian no stambol long samting wea Peter duim.
