27 And Jesus said to them, "You will all fall away , because it is written , ' I WILL STRIKE DOWN THE SHEPHERD , AND THE SHEEP SHALL BE SCATTERED .' 28 "But after I have been raised , I will go ahead of you to Galilee ." 29 But Peter said to Him, "Even though all may fall away , yet I will not." 30 And Jesus said to him, "Truly I say to you, that this very night , before a rooster crows twice , you yourself will deny Me three times ." 31 But Peter kept saying insistently , "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And they all were saying the same thing also .
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
32 They came to a place named Gethsemane ; and He said to His disciples , "Sit here until I have prayed ." 33 And He took with Him Peter and James and John , and began to be very distressed and troubled . 34 And He said to them, " My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death ; remain here and keep watch ." 35 And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible , the hour might pass Him by. 36 And He was saying , " Abba ! Father ! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will , but what You will." 37 And He came and found them sleeping , and said to Peter , "Simon , are you asleep ? Could you not keep watch for one hour ? 38 " Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation ; the spirit is willing , but the flesh is weak ." 39 Again He went away and prayed , saying the same words . 40 And again He came and found them sleeping , for their eyes were very heavy ; and they did not know what to answer Him. 41 And He came the third time , and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting ? It is enough ; the hour has come ; behold , the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners . 42 "Get up, let us be going ; behold , the one who betrays Me is at hand !"
The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
43 Immediately while He was still speaking , Judas , one of the twelve , came up accompanied e by a crowd with swords and clubs , who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders . 44 Now he who was betraying Him had given them a signal , saying , "Whomever e I kiss , He is the one; seize Him and lead Him away under guard ." 45 After coming , Judas immediately went to Him, saying , " Rabbi !" and kissed Him. 46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him. 47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword , and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear . 48 And Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me, as you would against a robber ? 49 "Every day I was with you in the temple teaching , and you did not seize Me; but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures ." 50 And they all left Him and fled .
