[Peter is drunk] Andrew. Andrew, I'm not like you. I'm not a follower of priests and prophets; I'm a fisherman. I've got my family to think of. You followed the Baptist, now follow this one...
[grabbing Peter's Arm] Peter!
[wresting free] Just leave me alone! Why did you bring Him here to me? [grabbing his net] *This* is my life! My nets... my boat. [shouting] Go on! Follow Him! But leave me!
Come on, you can't talk to him when he's like this. [motioning the others to leave] Come on, Philip.
What is the heart of the law?
Joseph of Arimathea:
"Hear, O Israel, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy strength." This is the greatest commandment.
You have said well. You are not far from the Kingdom of God, Joseph of Arimathea. But there is another commandment, no less greater: you must love your neighbor as yourself.
I denied him because I was a coward. We are all cowards. We accused Judas of being a traitor but we ALL betrayed Him. We ALL abandoned him. At least our brothers in the Sanhedrin who condemned him didn't know him. The Romans, they did not know HIM. But we... we ate with Him. We lived with Him. We knew He was the Christ! And still we betrayed Him. Brothers can't you see? You ask if I believe He's risen? Yes I do. For I know in my heart He will not abandon us. I know in my heart He has forgiven me... us... Forgiven all of us.
