We walked towards the Garden of Gethsemane, listening to Jesus teach as we walked. He stopped at one point, turned, and looked at us. We waited, sensing he was about to say something, but it was weighing on him. Then Jesus told us, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: "' I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will." That was a bit insulting, Peter, I thought. "Truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "this very night before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." But Peter declared, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." "I'll never leave you," I said.
We stopped at the edge of the crowd. The people were still debating and arguing about what happened. John said, "Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him."
Jesus replied, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly, I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
Continuing on Jesus led us straight towards the temple. Jesus entered the temple courts, looking around at the tables set up, and walked up to the nearest one. The man seated looked up at Jesus.
