"You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve.2
Simon Peter answered him,3 "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.4
We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."5
Then Jesus replied, "Have I not chosen you,6 the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!"7
(He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot,8 who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)9
