John 20 (NIV) The Empty Tomb 1 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

Apostles of Jesus: Images of Jesus' 12 Apostles, Paul, and Constantine: Saint Peter the Apostle
Apostle Peter. A common man. Just a fisherman. Wanted to be where Jesus was so much that whenever the Lord stopped ... Peter must have bumped into the back of him. Peter denied Jesus. 3 Times. Thanks Peter for reminding me to listen for the cock's crowing in my life. Peter said in his first epistle (paraphrasing) "don't remember me ... remember Christ in me". That's a High Bar Peter. Thanks for the example.
The spiritual power emanating from the Apostle Peter was so strong that even his shadow moved to those lying on the street sick and healed them. This message was written shortly before the martyrdom of the Apostle Peter: "I know that soon I must leave off this my tabernacle (body), as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me." At the end of his life, the Apostle Peter went back to Rome where he was martyred in '67 by crucifixion upside down.
St. John the Evangelist. St. John, a fisherman, the son of Zebedee, and the brother of St. James the Great, was called to be an Apostle by our Lord in the first year of His public ministry, and he travelled everywhere with Him. At the Last Supper, Jesus allowed John to rest upon His breast. John is the one apostle who never abandoned Jesus, but stayed by Him to the very end.
