Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial(A)

31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man(B) is glorified(C) and God is glorified in him.(D) 32 If God is glorified in him,[a] God will glorify the Son in himself,(E) and will glorify him at once.

33 “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.(F)

34 “A new command(G) I give you: Love one another.(H) As I have loved you, so you must love one another.(I) 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”(J)

36 Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”(K)

Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now,(L) but you will follow later.”(M)

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

38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!(N)

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled.(O) You believe(P) in God[b];(Q) believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there(R) to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back(S) and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.(T) You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Jesus the Way to the Father

Thomas(U) said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am(V) the way(W) and the truth(X) and the life.(Y) No one comes to the Father except through me.(Z) If you really know me, you will know[c] my Father as well.(AA) From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip(AB) said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.(AC) How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?(AD) The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority.(AE) Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
