Betrayal, Command, Betrayal

After receiving the morsel of bread, Judas went out. And it was night.

When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.

“My children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will see me, and just as I told the Judeans, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.

“A new commandment I give to you: that you love one another. As I have loved you, so must you love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”

Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you are not now able to follow, but you will follow later.”

Peter asked, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”

Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Amen, amen, I say to you: The rooster will not crow before you have thrice disowned me."

(John 13:30-38)
