Jesus Demands Peter’s Sinful Denials

31 Then Jesus said to them, “You will all become deserters because of me this night; for it is written,

‘I will strike the shepherd,
and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’

32 But after I am raised up, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.” 33 Peter said to him, “Though all become deserters because of you, I will never desert you.” 34 Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you, this very night, before the cock crows, you will deny me three times.” 35 Peter said to him, “Even though I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And so said all the disciples.

It is interesting that what was written long ago leads to future actions.

Peter didn’t write that the sheep would be scattered. But he was held to this story in advance and had no trouble fulfilling his destiny.
