11.19 Then Jesus said, “Now the Son of man is glorified,1 and God is glorified in him, and soon God will glorify me in Himself. Dear children, Ill be with you a little longer. Then you will seek me, and as I told the religious populace, I repeat, Where Im going you cannot come.2

A new commandment I give you: Love one another! If you love one another as I have loved you, all men will know that you are my disciples.”

Oct 25 “Where are you going, Lord?” Peter asked.

Jesus replied, “You cannot follow me now, but you will later.” Peter asked, “Why cant I, Lord? Ill lay down my life for you.”

Jesus said, “All of you will fall this very night, for it is written, I will strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered. When I resurrect, Ill go ahead of you to Galilee”3

“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. But I have prayed4 that your faith will not fail. When you repent, strengthen your brethren.”

Peter replied, “Lord, Im ready for both prison and death with you!” The other disciples said the same.

Oct 26 Jesus answered, “Truly, Peter, before the cock crows twice tonight, you will deny me three times.”5

Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “No,” they replied.

He said, “But now if you have a purse or bag take it; if you have no sword, sell your garment and buy one. For this scripture must be fulfilled, He was identified with sinners. Everything written6 about me is being fulfilled.” They said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.” He replied, “Its enough.”
