      And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that thou to-day, even this night, before the cock crow twice, shalt deny me thrice. AMP Jesus said to him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this very night, before a rooster crows twice, you will deny [that you even know] Me three times.”. Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. GW Jesus replied to Peter, “I can guarantee this truth: Before a rooster crows tonight, you will say three times that you don’t know me.”.

      This is a compilation of short stories, poems and drama. This is aimed at encouraging the habit of reading especially amongst JHS students and beyond. The cock would crow around midnight. Then the cock would crow at daybreak. Matthew and Luke could have been referring to the fact that before this time period was up, Peter would have denied Christ three times, or perhaps we should say at least three times.

        So, did the rooster crow once or twice? First, let’s look at what Jesus originally told Peter: Matthew – Peter replied, “Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will.” “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.”.   Inasmuch as the crow of a cock signifies the dawn of a new day, how bright the day becomes is a resolution of the efforts invested before the cock crows, hence before Nigeria becomes the great nation we all envisage to witness, efforts must be invested by the current trend of young people scrambling to join the political train.
