24The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him.1 But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."25
Then Judas, the one who would betray him,2 said, "Surely not I, Rabbi?"3 Jesus answered, "Yes, it is you."a26
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it,4 and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."27
Then he took the cup,5 gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you.28This is my blood of theb covenant,6 which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.729I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you8 in my Father's kingdom."30
When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.9
Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me,10 for it is written: " 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'c1132But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee."1233
Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will."
34"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."13
