Bible: John 13:33-14:3

13:33 Children, I am still with you for a little while. You will look for me, 1  and just as I said to the Jewish religious leaders, 2 Where I am going you cannot come,’ 3  now I tell you the same. 4 

13:34I give you a new commandment – to love 5  one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 6  13:35 Everyone 7  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, 8 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! 9  13:38 Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? 10  I tell you the solemn truth, 11  the rooster will not crow until you have denied me three times!

Jesus’ Parting Words to His Disciples

14:1Do not let your hearts be distressed. 12  You believe in God; 13  believe also in me. 14:2 There are many dwelling places 14  in my Father’s house. 15  Otherwise, I would have told you, because 16  I am going away to make ready 17  a place for you. 18  14:3 And if I go and make ready 19  a place for you, I will come again and take you 20  to be with me, 21  so that where I am you may be too.
