Nothing will stop the scriptures from being fulfilled. The shepherd will be smitten, and the sheep scattered.
It begins with betrayal; a mere thirty pieces of silver. The sword cannot stop God’s plan. Priests will believe they are doing God’s work. The hour will come, the cock will crow. The disciples will disappear, hiding as cowards. False witnesses will appear, twisting words. Peter will deny and weep.
It is a dismal night of despair. The scriptures will be fulfilled.
