The pace intensifies as Jesus enters the last few days of his life on earth. He eats his last Passover meal with his disciples and announces both a betrayal and a denial. The disciples' anxiety levels had probably reached an all-time high.

Jesus gives this same promise of peace today to troubled hearts and a troubled world.
