THE DENIALS OF PETER
THE LAST JUDGMENT
ONE IS A DEVIL
 After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him.
 Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also wish to go away?"
 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life;
 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God."
 Jesus answered them, "Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?"
 He spoke of Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the twelve, was to betray him.
YOUR FATHER, THE DEVIL
 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples,
 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
 They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one. How is it that you say, `You will be made free'?"
 Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin.
 The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever.
 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
 I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me, because my word finds no place in you.
 I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father."
 They answered him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do what Abraham did,
 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; this is not what Abraham did.
 You do what your father did." They said to him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God."
 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.
 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.
 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
 But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.
 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?
 He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God."
