GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, called Passover, was near. 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 The chief priests and the scribes were looking for some way to kill Jesus. However, they were afraid of the people. 2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people.
3 Then Satan entered Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve apostles. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 Judas went to the chief priests and the temple guards and discussed with them how he could betray Jesus. 4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.
5 They were pleased and agreed to give him some money. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 So Judas promised to do it. He kept looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus to them when there was no crowd. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
7 The day came during the Festival of Unleavened Bread when the Passover lamb had to be killed. 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 Jesus sent Peter and John and told them, "Go, prepare the Passover lamb for us to eat." 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 They asked him, "Where do you want us to prepare it?" 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 He told them, "Go into the city, and you will meet a man carrying a jug of water. Follow him into the house he enters. 10 He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters,
11 Tell the owner of the house that the teacher asks, 'Where is the room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?' 11 and say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
12 He will take you upstairs and show you a large furnished room. Get things ready there." 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 The disciples left. They found everything as Jesus had told them and prepared the Passover. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 When it was time to eat the Passover meal, Jesus and the apostles were at the table. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 Jesus said to them, "I've had a deep desire to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
16 I can guarantee that I won't eat it again until it finds its fulfillment in the kingdom of God." 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God."
17 Then he took a cup and spoke a prayer of thanksgiving. He said, "Take this, and share it. 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.
18 I can guarantee that from now on I won't drink this wine until the kingdom of God comes." 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
19 Then Jesus took bread and spoke a prayer of thanksgiving. He broke the bread, gave it to them, and said, "This is my body, which is given up for you. Do this to remember me." 19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
20 When supper was over, he did the same with the cup. He said, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new promise made with my blood." 20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
21 "The hand of the one who will betray me is with me on the table. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 The Son of Man is going to die the way it has been planned for him. But how horrible it will be for that person who betrays him." 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 So they began to discuss with each other who could do such a thing. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 Then a quarrel broke out among the disciples. They argued about who should be considered the greatest. 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of nations have power over their people, and those in authority call themselves friends of the people. 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors.
26 But you're not going to be that way! Rather, the greatest among you must be like the youngest, and your leader must be like a servant. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.
27 Who's the greatest, the person who sits at the table or the servant? Isn't it really the person who sits at the table? But I'm among you as a servant. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
28 "You have stood by me in the troubles that have tested me. 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 So as my Father has given me a kingdom, I'm giving it to you. 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
30 You will eat and drink at my table in my kingdom. You will also sit on thrones and judge the twelve tribes of Israel." 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 [Then the Lord said,] "Simon, Simon, listen! Satan has demanded to have you apostles for himself. He wants to separate you from me as a farmer separates wheat from husks. 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith will not fail. So when you recover, strengthen the other disciples." 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
33 But Peter said to him, "Lord, I'm ready to go to prison with you and to die with you." 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."
34 Jesus replied, "Peter, I can guarantee that the rooster won't crow tonight until you say three times that you don't know me." 34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me."
35 Then Jesus said to them, "When I sent you out without a wallet, traveling bag, or sandals, you didn't lack anything, did you?" "Not a thing!" they answered. 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered.
36 Then he said to them, "But now, the person who has a wallet and a traveling bag should take them along. The person who doesn't have a sword should sell his coat and buy one. 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
37 I can guarantee that the Scripture passage which says, 'He was counted with criminals,' must find its fulfillment in me. Indeed, whatever is written about me will come true." 37 It is written: 'And he was numbered with the transgressors'; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment."
38 The disciples said, "Lord, look! Here are two swords!" Then Jesus said to them, "That's enough!" 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
39 Jesus went out [of the city] to the Mount of Olives as he usually did. His disciples followed him. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 When he arrived, he said to them, "Pray that you won't be tempted." 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 Then he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, knelt down, and prayed, 41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,
42 "Father, if it is your will, take this cup [of suffering] away from me. However, your will must be done, not mine." 42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."
43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength. 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
44 So he prayed very hard in anguish. His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
45 When Jesus ended his prayer, he got up and went to the disciples. He found them asleep and overcome with sadness. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 He said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up, and pray that you won't be tempted." 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
47 While he was still speaking to the disciples, a crowd arrived. The man called Judas, one of the twelve apostles, was leading them. He came close to Jesus to kiss him. 47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him,
48 Jesus said to him, "Judas, do you intend to betray the Son of Man with a kiss?" 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 The men who were with Jesus saw what was going to happen. So they asked him, "Lord, should we use our swords to fight?" 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50 One of the disciples cut off the right ear of the chief priest's servant. 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51 But Jesus said, "Stop! That's enough of this." Then he touched the servant's ear and healed him. 51 But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, temple guards, and leaders who had come for him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs as if I were a criminal? 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs?
53 I was with you in the temple courtyard every day and you didn't try to arrest me. But this is your time, when darkness rules." 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour--when darkness reigns."
54 So they arrested Jesus and led him away to the chief priest's house. Peter followed at a distance. 54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance.
55 Some men had lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard. As they sat together, Peter sat among them. 55 But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them.
56 A female servant saw him as he sat facing the glow of the fire. She stared at him and said, "This man was with Jesus." 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him."
57 But Peter denied it by saying, "I don't know him, woman." 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 A little later someone else saw Peter and said, "You are one of them." But Peter said, "Not me!" 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
59 About an hour later another person insisted, "It's obvious that this man was with him. He's a Galilean!" 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 But Peter said, "I don't know what you're talking about!" Just then, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.
61 Then the Lord turned and looked directly at Peter. Peter remembered what the Lord had said: "Before a rooster crows today, you will say three times that you don't know me." 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times."
62 Then Peter went outside and cried bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
63 The men who were guarding Jesus made fun of him as they beat him. 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him.
64 They blindfolded him and said to him, "Tell us who hit you." 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"
65 They also insulted him in many other ways. 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.
66 In the morning the council of the people's leaders, the chief priests and the scribes, gathered together. They brought Jesus in front of their highest court and asked him, 66 At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them.
67 "Tell us, are you the Messiah?" Jesus said to them, "If I tell you, you won't believe me. 67 "If you are the Christ, " they said, "tell us." Jesus answered, "If I tell you, you will not believe me,
68 And if I ask you, you won't answer. 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer.
69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be in the highest position in heaven." 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."
70 Then all of them said, "So you're the Son of God?" Jesus answered them, "You're right to say that I am." 70 They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."
71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We've heard him say it ourselves." 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
