Preparing the Passover

1 1Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the 2Passover, was approaching. 2 The chief priests and the scribes 3were seeking how they might put Him to death; for they were afraid of the people. 3 4And 5Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, abelonging to the number of the twelve. 4 And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and 6officers how he might betray Him to them. 5 They were glad and agreed to give him money. 6 So he consented, and began seeking a good opportunity to betray Him to them bapart from the crowd. 7 7Then came the first day of Unleavened Bread on which 8the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 8 And Jesus sent 9Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it." 9 They said to Him, "Where do You want us to prepare it?" 10 And He said to them, "When you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters. 11 "And you shall say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"' 12 "And he will show you a large, furnished upper room; prepare it there." 13 And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.

The Lord's Supper

14 10When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and 11the apostles with Him. 15 And He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it 12until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God." 17 13And when He had taken a cup and 14given thanks, He said, "Take this and share it among yourselves; 18 for 15I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes." 19 And when He had taken some bread and 16given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 20 And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is 17poured out for you is the 18new covenant in My blood. 21 "19But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with cMine on the table. 22 "For indeed, the Son of Man is going 20as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!" 23 And they began to discuss among themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing.

Who Is Greatest

24 And there arose also 21a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest. 25 22And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called 'Benefactors.' 26 "But it is not this way with you, 23but the one who is the greatest among you must become like 24the youngest, and the leader like the servant. 27 "For 25who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But 26I am among you as the one who serves. 28 "You are those who have stood by Me in My 27trials; 29 and just as My Father has granted Me a 28kingdom, I grant you 30 that you may 29eat and drink at My table in My 30kingdom, and 31you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 31 "Simon, Simon, behold, 32Satan has ddemanded permission to 33sift you like wheat; 32 but I 34have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, 35strengthen your brothers." 33 36But he said to Him, "Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!" 34 And He said, "I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me." 35 And He said to them, "37When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, "No, nothing." 36 And He said to them, "But now, ewhoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and fwhoever has no sword is to sell his gcoat and buy one. 37 "For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, '38AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH TRANSGRESSORS '; for 39that which refers to Me has its hfulfillment." 38 They said, "Lord, look, here are two 40swords." And He said to them, "It is enough."

The Garden of Gethsemane

39 41And He came out and proceeded 42as was His custom to 43the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. 40 44When He arrived at the place, He said to them, "45Pray that you may not enter into temptation." 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and He 46knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this 47cup from Me; 48yet not My will, but Yours be done." 43 iNow an 49angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And 50being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. 45 When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, 46 and said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up and 51pray that you may not enter into temptation."

Jesus Betrayed by Judas

47 52While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him. 48 But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?" 49 When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, shall we strike with the 53sword?" 50 And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered and said, "jStop! No more of this." And He touched his ear and healed him. 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests and 54officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs 55as you would against a robber? 53 "While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but kthis hour and the power of darkness are yours."

Jesus' Arrest

54 56Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but 57Peter was following at a distance. 55 58After they had kindled a fire in the middle of 59the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them. 56 And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, "This man was with Him too." 57 But he denied it, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him." 58 A little later, 60another saw him and said, "You are one of them too!" But Peter said, "Man, I am not!" 59 After about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, "Certainly this man also was with Him, 61for he is a Galilean too." 60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are talking about." Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 61 62The Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, "63Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times." 62 And he went out and wept bitterly. 63 64Now the men who were holding lJesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him, 64 and they blindfolded Him and were asking Him, saying, "65Prophesy, who is the one who hit You?" 65 And they were saying many other things against Him, 66blaspheming.

Jesus before the Sanhedrin

66 67When it was day, 68the mCouncil of elders of the people assembled, both chief priests and scribes, and they led Him away to their 69council chamber, saying, 67 "70If You are the nChrist, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will not believe; 68 and if I ask a question, you will not answer. 69 "71But from now on 72THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD." 70 And they all said, "Are You 73the Son of God, then?" And He said to them, "o74Yes, I am." 71 Then they said, "What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth."
