Everyone deserted him and fled. —Mark 14:50
The Bible includes many stories in which God’s people start out well but end up forsaking the way of life and truth.
Jesus calls twelve followers to be his disciples. They learn from him and follow his ways. They even go out two by two to spread the good-news message and do miracles. But in the end Judas betrays Jesus, Peter denies him, and all the other disciples flee and hide.
