Then Jesus said to them “All of you will falter because of me tonight, because it is written ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep and his flock will be scattered.’ But after I have been resurrected, I will travel ahead of you to Galilee.”
Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where you going?” Jesus answered him, “You cannot follow me where I am going right now, but you will go there later.”
Then he added “Simon Simon, be on your guard! Satan has asked to be able to sift all of you like wheat. But I have prayed for you personally that your faith will be strong. I hope that when you have turned back, you will strengthen your brothers.”
Peter said “I will not run away even if everyone else does! Lord, I am ready to follow you to prison and even to death!”
Jesus replied “Will you die for me? Truly, you will deny that you know me three times before the rooster crows this very day!”
Peter told him “Even if I have to lay down my life for you, I will never deny that I know you.”
And all the disciples repeated his words.
