Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will run away, because it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.
But after I have been resurrected, I will go ahead of you to Galilee."
Peter told Him, "Even if everyone runs away, I will certainly not!"
"I assure you," Jesus said to him, "today, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times!"
But he kept insisting, "If I have to die with You, I will never deny You!" And they all said the same thing.
Then they came to a place named Gethsemane, and He told His disciples, "Sit here while I pray."
He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be deeply distressed and horrified.
Then He said to them, "My soul is swallowed up in sorrow -to the point of death. Remain here and stay awake."
Then He went a little farther, fell to the ground, and began to pray that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
And He said, " Abba , Father! All things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me. Nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."
Then He came and found them sleeping. "Simon, are you sleeping?" He asked Peter. "Couldn't you stay awake one hour?
Stay awake and pray so that you won't enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
Once again He went away and prayed, saying the same thing.
And He came again and found them sleeping, because they could not keep their eyes open. They did not know what to say to Him.
Then He came a third time and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The time has come. Look, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Get up; let's go! See-My betrayer is near."
While He was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, suddenly arrived. With him was a mob, with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders.
His betrayer had given them a signal. "The One I kiss," he said, "He's the One; arrest Him and take Him away under guard."
So when he came, he went right up to Him and said, "Rabbi!"-and kissed Him.
Then they took hold of Him and arrested Him.
And one of those who stood by drew his sword, struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his ear.
But Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as though I were a criminal, to capture Me?
Every day I was among you, teaching in the temple complex, and you didn't arrest Me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."
Then they all deserted Him and ran away.
Now a certain young man, having a linen cloth wrapped around his naked body, was following Him. They caught hold of him,
but he left the linen cloth behind and ran away naked.
They led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes convened.
