who owned the cock

Bible quiz answer:

In the Bible we find three descriptions of this event. The account of it is found in the Gospels of Mark 14, John 18 and Luke 8. All this happened at the culmination of Jesus’ life, when He came to the Holy City to celebrate the Passover. Annually all religious Jews would come to this city to revere God and make ransoms during this very special fest. It was time for Christ to be the Passover Lamb of God and to amend for the sins of humans.
Peter denied Jesus

By their custom the disciples have prepared the food and they had supper together. Jesus talked to them, taught them and even warned them. During that supper He disclosed the one who would give Him away and the Lord and never ever betrays Him.    

That is when Jesus prophesied and predicted the proceedings in the priest’s court, when Peter betrayed His master thrice. The follower could not trust the words of His teacher and friend. He adored Jesus so much and honestly thought such a thing would never happen.

Peter denied Jesus 2Later on Jesus and the twelve headed to the Gethsemane to stay the night over. Jesus prayed earnestly, while the apostles were asleep. One of them went out to go about his dirty business and betrayed the Lord. Jesus was captured by the priests’ guards and the disciples fled and got scattered.

Back then there were two high priests in Jerusalem. The name of the first one was Annas and the other one was Caiaphas. Annas was a relative (father in law) of Caiaphas. He was an elderly person and at first they took Christ to his house.

Two disciples followed Jesus, as one of them had acquaintances in the Annas house, he went in and Peter (the second one) remained outdoors. So, we can surely say that Annas was not the owner of that rooster, because Peter never visited his house.

cock that crowedNext Jesus was brought to Caiaphas house. Peter followed the Lord there and hoisted in the yard at the fire, warming his hands.

At that time someone approached him and ask if he was the Messiah’s disciple, but Peter denied His master for the first time. Then it happened two more times and the cock crowed.

Then Jesus was taken before the Pilate, judged, rejected by His own nation and crucified. He paid the price for our transgressions and was resurrected again. His prophecy on Peter’s denial came true. Peter cried bitterly and went out of the priest’s house. Why did peter deny Jesus?

Bible quiz questionHe was scared and upset. At that time there was no will of God for him to die and divide the destiny of the Son of God.

Anyways, who owned that noted bird that cried when Peter denied the Lord for the third time? It is a notable cock indeed, as he was mentioned by the Christ Himself in the prophecy.

There is no name to be given, however, we can suppose that the fowl was owned by the high priest Caiaphas, as these events took place in his house.
It is our best bet and the logical one, too. So, now you know who owned the rooster and how to answer this Bible quiz question.
