Looking at the entry in BAGD, I see that this term is also used to describe
Peter denying Jesus, someone denying a former occupation as a potter, etc., but
it isn't very clear on the precise meaning in the context of denying one's self.
Little Kittel is also less than helpful to me here. Is there anything that will
help me get more of a handle on this extremely important term?
P.S. why don't 11-year-old daughters ever ask questions I can answer?
