(Mt 26:24-25)
The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would be better for that man if he had never been born."

(Jn 13:25-28)
He leaned back against Jesus' chest and said to him, "Master, who is it?"

Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I hand the morsel after I have dipped it." So he dipped the morsel and [took it and] handed it to Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot.

After he took the morsel, Satan entered him. So Jesus said to him, "What you are going to do, do quickly."

[Now] none of those reclining at table realized why he said this to him.

(Jn 12:7-11)
So Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Let her keep this for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me."

(Jn 11:49-53)
But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people, so that the whole nation may not perish."

He did not say this on his own, but since he was high priest for that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, and not only for the nation, but also to gather into one the dispersed children of God.

So from that day on they planned to kill him.

(Jn 10:40-42)

(Jn 8:23,28-30)
He said to them, "You belong to what is below, I belong to what is above. You belong to this world, but I do not belong to this world.

So Jesus said (to them), "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me. The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do what is pleasing to him."

Because he spoke this way, many came to believe in him.

(Jn 8:12)
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

(Jn 8:7-11)
But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.

And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the woman before him.

Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She replied, "No one, sir." Then Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go, [and] from now on do not sin any more."

(Jn 7:45-48)
So the guards went to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why did you not bring him?"

The guards answered, "Never before has anyone spoken like this one."

So the Pharisees answered them, "Have you also been deceived? Have any of the authorities or the Pharisees believed in him?

(Jn 7:30)
So they tried to arrest him, but no one laid a hand upon him, because his hour had not yet come.

(Jn 5:44)
How can you believe, when you accept praise from one another and do not seek the praise that comes from the only God?

(Jn 5:24)
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from death to life.

(Jn 5:14-16)
After this Jesus found him in the temple area and said to him, "Look, you are well; do not sin any more, so that nothing worse may happen to you."

The man went and told the Jews that Jesus was the one who had made him well.

Therefore, the Jews began to persecute Jesus because he did this on a sabbath.

(Jn 4:53)
The father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live," and he and his whole household came to believe.

(Lk 15:20-24)
So he got up and went back to his father. While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him.

His son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.'

But his father ordered his servants, 'Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.' Then the celebration began.

The second is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."
