Mark chapter 14

Peterís promise

Verses 27-31

If sheep have nobody to lead them, they go in every direction. If someone hits the *shepherd, the sheep run away. Jesus talked about Zechariah 13:7. People would take Jesus away. Then the *disciples would not remain together. Like the sheep, the *disciples would run away.

But after those troubles, Jesus would become alive again. He told the *disciples that he would meet them in Galilee.

Peter promised that he would not leave Jesus. Peter even said that he was ready to die with Jesus.

But Peter did not know how afraid he would be. He would tell people that he did not know Jesus. Peter would do it during that same night. And Peter would do it three times.

Next part: Jesus in Gethsemane
