Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial

36Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” (A)Jesus answered him, “Where I am going (B)you cannot follow me now, (C)but you will follow afterward.” 37(D)Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” 38Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, (E)the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times.

I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

14(F)“Let not your hearts be troubled. (G)Believe in God;[a] believe also in me. 2In (H)my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that (I)I go to prepare a place for you?[b] 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you (J)to myself, that (K)where I am you may be also. 4And you know the way to where I am going.”[c] 5(L)Thomas said to him, “Lord, (M)we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am (N)the way, and (O)the truth, and (P)the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7(Q)If you had known me, you would have (R)known my Father also.[d] From now on you do know him and (S)have seen him.”

8(T)Philip said to him, “Lord, (U)show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? (V)Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

37Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

38Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The co*ck shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.

14Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
