New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, which begins with the Passover celebration, was drawing near. 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 The leading priests and teachers of religious law were actively plotting Jesus' murder. But they wanted to kill him without starting a riot, a possibility they greatly feared. 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 Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples, 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 and he went over to the leading priests and captains of the Temple guard to discuss the best way to 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 delighted that he was ready to help them, and they promised him a reward. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 So he began looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus so they could arrest him quietly when the crowds weren't around. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
7 Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread arrived, when the Passover lambs were sacrificed. 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 Jesus sent Peter and John ahead and said, "Go and prepare the Passover meal, so we can eat it together." 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 "Where do you want us to go?" they asked him. 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 He replied, "As soon as you enter Jerusalem, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. At 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 say to the owner, 'The Teacher asks, Where is the guest 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 to a large room that is already set up. That is the place. Go ahead and prepare our supper there." 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 They went off to the city and found everything just as Jesus had said, and they prepared the Passover supper there. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 Then at the proper time Jesus and the twelve apostles sat down together at the table. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 Jesus said, "I have looked forward to this hour with deep longing, anxious to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
16 For I tell you now that I won't eat it again until it comes to 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 of wine, and when he had given thanks for it, he 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 For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come." 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 loaf of bread; and when he had thanked God for it, he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance 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 After supper he took another cup of wine and said, "This wine is the token of God's new covenant to save you -- an agreement sealed with the blood I will pour 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 here at this table, sitting among us as a friend, is the man who will betray me. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 For I, the Son of Man, must die since it is part of God's plan. But how terrible it will be for my betrayer!" 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 Then the disciples began to ask each other which of them would ever do such a thing. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 And they began to argue among themselves as to who would be the greatest in the coming Kingdom. 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
25 Jesus told them, "In this world the kings and great men order their people around, and yet they are called '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 among you, those who are the greatest should take the lowest rank, and the leader should 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 Normally the master sits at the table and is served by his servants. But not here! For I am your 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 remained true to me in my time of trial. 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 And just as my Father has granted me a Kingdom, I now grant you the right 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
30 to eat and drink at my table in that Kingdom. And you will sit on thrones, judging 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, Satan has asked to have all of you, to sift you like wheat. 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen and build up 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 said, "Lord, I am ready to go to prison with you, and even to die with you." 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."
34 But Jesus said, "Peter, let me tell you something. The rooster will not crow tomorrow morning until you have denied three times that you even 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 them, "When I sent you out to preach the Good News and you did not have money, a traveler's bag, or extra clothing, did you lack anything?" "No," they replied. 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered.
36 "But now," he said, "take your money and a traveler's bag. And if you don't have a sword, sell your clothes 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 the time has come for this prophecy about me to be fulfilled: 'He was counted among those who were rebels.' Yes, everything written about me by the prophets 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 "Lord," they replied, "we have two swords among us." "That's enough," he said. 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
39 Then, accompanied by the disciples, Jesus left the upstairs room and went as usual to the Mount of Olives. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 There he told them, "Pray that you will not be overcome by temptation." 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 He walked away, about 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, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will, 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 and strengthened him. 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
44 He prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
45 At last he stood up again and returned to the disciples, only to find them asleep, exhausted from grief. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked. "Get up and pray. Otherwise temptation will overpower you." 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
47 But even as he said this, a mob approached, led by Judas, one of his twelve disciples. Judas walked over to Jesus and greeted him with a kiss. 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, how can you betray me, the Son of Man, with a kiss?" 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 When the other disciples saw what was about to happen, they exclaimed, "Lord, should we fight? We brought the swords!" 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50 And one of them slashed at the high priest's servant 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, "Don't resist anymore." And he touched the place where the man's ear had been and healed him. 51 But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52 Then Jesus spoke to the leading priests and captains of the Temple guard and the other leaders who headed the mob. "Am I some dangerous criminal," he asked, "that you have come armed with swords and clubs to arrest me? 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 Why didn't you arrest me in the Temple? I was there every day. But this is your moment, the time when the power of darkness reigns." 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 him and led him to the high priest's residence, and Peter was following far behind. 54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance.
55 The guards lit a fire in the courtyard and sat around it, and Peter joined them there. 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 servant girl noticed him in the firelight and began staring at him. Finally she said, "This man was one of Jesus' followers!" 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him."
57 Peter denied it. "Woman," he said, "I don't even know the man!" 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 After a while someone else looked at him and said, "You must be one of them!" "No, man, I'm not!" Peter replied. 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 someone else insisted, "This must be one of Jesus' disciples because he is a Galilean, too." 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 But Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you are talking about." And as soon as he said these words, the rooster crowed. 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.
61 At that moment the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered that the Lord had said, "Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny me three times." 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 And Peter left the courtyard, crying bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
63 Now the guards in charge of Jesus began mocking and beating him. 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him.
64 They blindfolded him; then they hit him and asked, "Who hit you that time, you prophet?" 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"
65 And they threw all sorts of terrible insults at him. 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.
66 At daybreak all the leaders of the people assembled, including the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. Jesus was led before this high 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 and they said, "Tell us if you are the Messiah." But he replied, "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 a question, you won't answer. 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer.
69 But the time is soon coming when I, the Son of Man, will be sitting at God's right hand in the place of power." 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."
70 They all shouted, "Then you claim you are the Son of God?" And he replied, "You are right in saying that I am." 70 They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."
71 "What need do we have for other witnesses?" they shouted. "We ourselves heard him say it." 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
