On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and said, "Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover meal?"
He replied, "Go into the city, to a certain man, and say, ‘The teacher says, My time is near. I'm going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house. '"
The disciples did just as Jesus instructed them. They prepared the Passover.
That evening he took his place at the table with the twelve disciples.
As they were eating he said, "I assure you that one of you will betray me."
Deeply saddened, each one said to him, "I'm not the one, am I, Lord?"
He replied, "The one who will betray me is the one who dips his hand with me into this bowl.24 The Human Onea goes to his death just as it is written about him. But how terrible it is for that person who betrays the Human One!b It would have been better for him if he had never been born."
Now Judas, who would betray him, replied, "It's not me, is it, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "You said it."
