22 Deeply saddened, each one said to him, "I'm not the one, am I, Lord?" 22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?"
23 He replied, "The one who will betray me is the one who dips his hand with me into this bowl. 23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me.
24 The Human One goes to his death just as it is written about him. But how terrible it is for that person who betrays the Human One!

It would be better for him if he had not been born."
25 Now Judas, who would betray him, replied, "It's not me, is it, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "You said it." 25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, "Surely not I, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "Yes, it is you."

31 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Tonight you will all fall away because of me. This is because it is written, I will hit the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will go off in all directions. 31 Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: " 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'

34 Jesus said to him, "I assure you that, before the rooster crows tonight, you will deny me three times." 34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."

39 Then he went a short distance farther and fell on his face and prayed, "My Father, if it's possible, take this cup of suffering away from me. However—not what I want but what you want." 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will."
40 He came back to the disciples and found them sleeping. He said to Peter, "Couldn't you stay alert one hour with me? 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?" he asked Peter.
41 Stay alert and pray so that you won't give in to temptation. The spirit is eager, but the flesh is weak." 41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
42 A second time he went away and prayed, "My Father, if it's not possible that this cup be taken away unless I drink it, then let it be what you want." 42 He went away a second time and prayed, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done."
43 Again he came and found them sleeping. Their eyes were heavy with sleep. 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.
44 But he left them and again went and prayed the same words for the third time. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.
45 Then he came to his disciples and said to them, "Will you sleep and rest all night?

Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

They had been sent by the chief priests and elders of the people. 47 While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people.
48 His betrayer had given them a sign: "Arrest the man I kiss." 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him."
49 Just then he came to Jesus and said, "Hello, Rabbi." Then he kissed him. 49 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him.
50 But Jesus said to him, "Friend, do what you came to do." Then they came and grabbed Jesus and arrested him. 50 Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for." Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him.
51 One of those with Jesus reached for his sword. Striking the high priest's slave, he cut off his ear. 51 With that, one of Jesus' companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.
52 Then Jesus said to him, "Put the sword back into its place. All those who use the sword will die by the sword. 52 "Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.
53 Or do you think that I'm not able to ask my Father and he will send to me more than twelve battle groups of angels right away? 53 Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?
54 But if I did that, how would the scriptures be fulfilled that say this must happen?" 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?"
55 Then Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come with swords and clubs to arrest me, like a thief? Day after day, I sat in the temple teaching, but you didn't arrest me. 55 At that time Jesus said to the crowd, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Every day I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me.
56 But all this has happened so that what the prophets said in the scriptures might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples left Jesus and ran away. 56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.
57 Those who arrested Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest. The legal experts and the elders had gathered there. 57 Those who had arrested Jesus took him to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the teachers of the law and the elders had assembled.
58 Peter followed him from a distance until he came to the high priest's courtyard. He entered that area and sat outside with the officers to see how it would turn out. 58 But Peter followed him at a distance, right up to the courtyard of the high priest. He entered and sat down with the guards to see the outcome.

61 who said, "This man said, ‘I can destroy God's temple and rebuild it in three days.'" 61 and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' "
62 Then the high priest stood and said to Jesus, "Aren't you going to respond to the testimony these people have brought against you?" 62 Then the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?"
63 But Jesus was silent. The high priest said, "By the living God, I demand that you tell us whether you are the Christ, God's Son." 63 But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."
64 "You said it," Jesus replied. "But I say to you that from now on you'll see the Human One sitting on the right side of the Almighty and coming on the heavenly clouds." 64 "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."
65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He's insulting God! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, you've heard his insult against God. 65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy.

69 Meanwhile, Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. A servant woman came and said to him, "You were also with Jesus the Galilean." 69 Now Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, and a servant girl came to him. "You also were with Jesus of Galilee," she said.
70 But he denied it in front of all of them, saying, "I don't know what you are talking about." 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said.
71 When he went over to the gate, another woman saw him and said to those who were there, "This man was with Jesus, the man from Nazareth." 71 Then he went out to the gateway, where another girl saw him and said to the people there, "This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth."
72 With a solemn pledge, he denied it again, saying, "I don't know the man." 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!"
73 A short time later those standing there came and said to Peter, "You must be one of them. The way you talk gives you away." 73 After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, "Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away."
74 Then he cursed and swore, "I don't know the man!" At that very moment the rooster crowed. 74 Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, "I don't know the man!" Immediately a rooster crowed.
75 Peter remembered Jesus' words, "Before the rooster crows you will deny me three times." And Peter went out and cried uncontrollably. 75 Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: "Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." And he went outside and wept bitterly.
