Death Plot and Anointing

1 1Now 2the Passover and Unleavened Bread were two days away; and the chief priests and the scribes 3were seeking how to seize Him by stealth and kill Him; 2 for they were saying, "Not during the festival, otherwise there might be a riot of the people." 3 4While He was in 5Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and reclining at the table, there came a woman with an alabaster vial of very 6costly perfume of pure anard; and she broke the vial and poured it over His head. 4 But some were indignantly remarking to one another, "Why has this perfume been wasted? 5 "For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred bdenarii, and the money given to the poor." And they were scolding her. 6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me. 7 "For you always have 7the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. 8 "She has done what she could; 8she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial. 9 "Truly I say to you, 9wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her." 10 10Then Judas Iscariot, 11who was one of the twelve, went off to the chief priests in order to cbetray Him to them. 11 They were glad when they heard this, and promised to give him money. And he began seeking how to betray Him at an opportune time.

The Last Passover

12 12On the first day of 13Unleavened Bread, when dthe Passover lamb was being 14sacrificed, His disciples said to Him, "Where do You want us to go and prepare for You to eat the Passover?" 13 And He sent two of His disciples and said to them, "Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him; 14 and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher says, "Where is My 15guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"' 15 "And he himself will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; prepare for us there." 16 The disciples went out and came to the city, and found it just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover. 17 16When it was evening He came with the twelve. 18 As they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, "Truly I say to you that one of you will ebetray Me-fone who is eating with Me." 19 They began to be grieved and to say to Him one by one, "Surely not I?" 20 And He said to them, "It is one of the twelve, gone who dips with Me in the bowl. 21 "For the Son of Man is to go just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man hby whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good ifor that man if he had not been born."

The Lord's Supper

22 17While they were eating, He took some bread, and jafter a 18blessing He broke it, and gave it to them, and said, "Take it; this is My body." 23 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 And He said to them, "This is My 19blood of the 20covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 "Truly I say to you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God." 26 21After singing a hymn, they went out to 22the Mount of Olives. 27 23And Jesus said to them, "You will all kfall away, because it is written, '24I WILL STRIKE DOWN THE SHEPHERD, AND THE SHEEP SHALL BE SCATTERED.' 28 "But after I have been raised, 25I will go ahead of you to Galilee." 29 But Peter said to Him, "Even though all may lfall away, yet I will not." 30 And Jesus said to him, "Truly I say to you, that m26this very night, before 27a rooster crows twice, you yourself will deny Me three times." 31 But Peter kept saying insistently, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And they all were saying the same thing also.

Jesus in Gethsemane

32 28They came to a place named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, "Sit here until I have prayed." 33 And He took with Him Peter and nJames and John, and began to be very 29distressed and troubled. 34 And He said to them, "30My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch." 35 And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, 31the hour might opass Him by. 36 And He was saying, "32Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; 33yet not what I will, but what You will." 37 And He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? 38 "34Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." 39 Again He went away and prayed, saying the same pwords. 40 And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him. 41 And He came the third time, and said to them, "qAre you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; 35the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being rbetrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 "Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!"

Betrayal and Arrest

43 36Immediately while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, came up saccompanied by a crowd with swords and clubs, who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 Now he who was betraying Him had given them a signal, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him and lead Him away tunder guard." 45 After coming, Judas immediately went to Him, saying, "37Rabbi!" and kissed Him. 46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him. 47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and ucut off his ear. 48 And Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me, as you would against a robber? 49 "Every day I was with you 38in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me; but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures." 50 And they all left Him and fled. 51 A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. 52 But he vpulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked.

Jesus before His Accusers

53 39They led Jesus away to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes gathered together. 54 Peter had followed Him at a distance, 40right into 41the courtyard of the high priest; and he was sitting with the wofficers and 42warming himself at the xfire. 55 Now the chief priests and the whole y43Council kept trying to obtain testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, and they were not finding any. 56 For many were giving false testimony against Him, but their testimony was not consistent. 57 Some stood up and began to give false testimony against Him, saying, 58 "We heard Him say, '44I will destroy this ztemple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.' " 59 Not even in this respect was their testimony consistent. 60 The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, "Do You not answer? aaWhat is it that these men are testifying against You?" 61 45But He kept silent and did not answer. 46Again the high priest was questioning Him, and bbsaying to Him, "Are You ccthe Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?" 62 And Jesus said, "I am; and you shall see 47THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and 48COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN." 63 49Tearing his clothes, the high priest said, "What further need do we have of witnesses? 64 "You have heard the 50blasphemy; how does it seem to you?" And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death. 65 Some began to 51spit at Him, and dd52to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, "53Prophesy!" And the officers eereceived Him with ffslaps in the face.

Peter's Denials

66 54As Peter was below in 55the courtyard, one of the servant-girls of the high priest came, 67 and seeing Peter 56warming himself, she looked at him and said, "You also were with Jesus the 57Nazarene." 68 But he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are talking about." And he 58went out onto the ggporch.hh and a rooster crowed.#2871 69 The servant-girl saw him, and began once more to say to the bystanders, "This is one of them!" 70 But again 59he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders were again saying to Peter, "Surely you are one of them, 60for you are a Galilean too." 71 But he began to iicurse and swear, "I do not know this man you are talking about!" 72 Immediately a rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had made the remark to him, "Before 61a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times." jjAnd he began to weep.
