When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve.
While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me--one who is eating with me."19
They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, "Surely not I?"
20"It is one of the Twelve," he replied, "one who dips bread into the bowl with me.121The Son of Man2 will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."22
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it,3 and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take it; this is my body."23
Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it.424"This is my blood of thea covenant,5 which is poured out for many," he said to them.
25"I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God."626
When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.7
