Peter of Jerusalem was the Patriarch of Jerusalem from 524 to 552. He held to the Orthodox belief.

Patriarch Peter, as John III's successor and following in his Orthodox position, convened a synod in September 536 in which he proclaimed his orthodoxy and adherence to the Council of Chalcedon. He agreed in the deposition of Anthimus I, the Monophysite patriarch of Constantinople who was deposed that year.
