Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The time was near for the Festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover. 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 The chief priests and the teachers of the Law were afraid of the people, and so they were trying to find a way of putting Jesus to death secretly. 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 into Judas, called Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 So Judas went off and spoke with the chief priests and the officers of the Temple guard about how he could betray Jesus to them. 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 offered to pay him money. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 Judas agreed to it and started looking for a good chance to hand Jesus over to them without the people knowing about it. 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 lambs for the Passover meal were 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 with these instructions: "Go and get the Passover meal ready for us to eat." 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 "Where do you want us to get it ready?" they asked him. 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 He answered, "As you go into the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that 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 and say to the owner of the house: "The Teacher says to you, Where is the room where my disciples and I will eat the Passover meal?' 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 show you a large furnished room upstairs, where you will get everything ready." 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 They went off and found everything just as Jesus had told them, and they prepared the Passover meal. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 When the hour came, Jesus took his place at the table with the apostles. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 He said to them, "I have wanted so much to eat this Passover meal 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 For I tell you, I will never eat it until it is given its full meaning 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 Jesus took a cup, gave thanks to God, and said, "Take this and share it among yourselves. 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.
18 I tell you that from now on I will not 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 he took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in memory of 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 In the same way, he gave them the cup after the supper, saying, "This cup is God's new covenant sealed with my blood, which is poured out for you. 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 "But, look! The one who betrays me is here at the table with me! 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 The Son of Man will die as God has decided, but how terrible for that man who betrays him!" 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 Then they began to ask among themselves which one of them it could be who was going to do this. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 An argument broke out among the disciples as to which one of them should be thought of as 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 the pagans have power over their people, and the rulers claim the title "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 this is not the way it is with you; rather, the greatest one among you must be like the youngest, and the leader must be like the 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 is greater, the one who sits down to eat or the one who serves? The one who sits down, of course. But I am among you as one who serves. 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 stayed with me all through my trials; 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 and just as my Father has given me the right to rule, so I will give you the same right. 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, and you will sit on thrones to rule over 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 "Simon, Simon! Listen! Satan has received permission to test all of you, to separate the good from the bad, as a farmer separates the wheat from the chaff. 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. And when you turn back to me, you must strengthen your brothers." 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
33 Peter answered, "Lord, I am 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 "I tell you, Peter," Jesus said, "the rooster will not crow tonight until you have said three times that you do not 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 asked his disciples, "When I sent you out that time without purse, bag, or shoes, did you lack anything?" "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 "But now," Jesus said, "whoever has a purse or a bag must take it; and whoever does not have a sword must 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 For I tell you that the scripture which says, "He shared the fate of criminals,' must come true about me, because what was written about me is coming 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, "Look! Here are two swords, Lord!" "That is enough!" he replied. 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
39 Jesus left the city and went, as he usually did, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples went with him. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 When he arrived at the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation." 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 Then he went off from them about the distance of a stone's throw and knelt down and prayed. 41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,
42 "Father," he said, "if you will, take this cup of suffering away from me. Not my will, however, but your will be done." 42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."
43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
44 In great anguish he prayed even more fervently; his sweat was 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 Rising from his prayer, he went back to the disciples and found them asleep, worn out by their grief. 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 will not fall into temptation." 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
47 Jesus was still speaking when a crowd arrived, led by Judas, one of the twelve disciples. He came up 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 But Jesus said, "Judas, is it with a kiss that you betray the Son of Man?" 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 When the disciples who were with Jesus saw what was going to happen, they asked, "Shall we use our swords, Lord?" 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50 And one of them struck the High Priest's slave and cut off his right ear. 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51 But Jesus said, "Enough of this!" He touched the man'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 and the officers of the Temple guard and the elders who had come there to get him, "Did you have to come with swords and clubs, as though I were an outlaw? 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 every day, and you did not try to arrest me. But this is your hour to act, when the power of 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 They arrested Jesus and took him away into the house of the High Priest; and 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 A fire had been lit in the center of the courtyard, and Peter joined those who were sitting around it. 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 When one of the servant women saw him sitting there at the fire, she looked straight at him and said, "This man too 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, "Woman, I don't even know him!" 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 After a little while a man noticed Peter and said, "You are one of them, too!" But Peter answered, "Man, I am not!" 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
59 And about an hour later another man insisted strongly, "There isn't any doubt that this man was with Jesus, because he also is a Galilean!" 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 But Peter answered, "Man, I don't know what you are talking about!" At once, 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 The Lord turned around and looked straight at Peter, and Peter remembered that the Lord had said to him, "Before the rooster crows tonight, you will say three times that you do not 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 Peter went out and wept bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
63 The men who were guarding Jesus made fun of him and beat him. 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him.
64 They blindfolded him and asked him, "Who hit you? Guess!" 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"
65 And they said many other insulting things to him. 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.
66 When day came, the elders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the Law met together, and Jesus was brought before the Council. 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," they said, "are you the Messiah?" He answered, "If I tell you, you will not 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 a question, you will not answer. 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer.
69 But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right side of Almighty God." 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."
70 They all said, "Are you, then, the Son of God?" He answered them, "You 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 And they said, "We don't need any witnesses! We ourselves have heard what he said!" 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
