The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – The First Response to Betrayal (26:69-75)
The First Response to Betrayal (26:69-75)

By including the denial account, Matthew warns disciples against apostasy in the face of persecution. By placing two responses to betrayal side by side, Matthew also points out how disciples should respond to failures of their discipleship. Peter wept with remorse (v. 75); Judas killed himself (27:5). Only the former was able to return to Jesus.
