Peter The Apostle
Peter was among the first disciples whom Jesus called to follow Him. By profession a Galilean fisherman, he was promised that Jesus would make him a fisher of men, a prediction amply fulfilled in subsequent events. He possessed natural gifts of leadership and appears both in the gospels and the Acts as the leader among the twelve apostles. He is consistently portrayed as a man of impulse who could rise to the heights or be plunged to the depths.
