Bible: John 13:31-38

The Prediction of Peter’s Denial

13:31 When 1  Judas 2  had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in him. 13:32 If God is glorified in him, 3  God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him right away. 4  13:33 Children, I am still with you for a little while. You will look for me, 5  and just as I said to the Jewish religious leaders, 6 Where I am going you cannot come,’ 7  now I tell you the same. 8 

13:34I give you a new commandment – to love 9  one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 10  13:35 Everyone 11  will know by this that you are my disciples – if you have love for one another.”

13:36 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied, 12 Where I am going, you cannot follow me now, but you will follow later.” 13:37 Peter said to him, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you! 13  13:38 Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? 14  I tell you the solemn truth, 15  the rooster will not crow until you have denied me three times!
