Luke 22

MSG 1 The Feast of Unleavened Bread, also called Passover, drew near. NIV 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, MSG 2 The high priests and religion scholars were looking for a way to do away with Jesus but, fearful of the people, they were also looking for a way to cover their tracks. NIV 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. MSG 3 That's when Satan entered Judas, the one called Iscariot. He was one of the Twelve. NIV 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. MSG 4 Leaving the others, he conferred with the high priests and the Temple guards about how he might betray Jesus to them. NIV 4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. MSG 5 They couldn't believe their good luck and agreed to pay him well. NIV 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money. MSG 6 He gave them his word and started looking for a way to betray Jesus, but out of sight of the crowd. NIV 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present. MSG 7 The Day of Unleavened Bread came, the day the Passover lamb was butchered. NIV 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. MSG 8 Jesus sent Peter and John off, saying, "Go prepare the Passover for us so we can eat it together." NIV 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover." MSG 9 They said, "Where do you want us to do this?" NIV 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked. MSG 10 He said, "Keep your eyes open as you enter the city. A man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him home. NIV 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, MSG 11 Then speak with the owner of the house: The Teacher wants to know, 'Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?' NIV 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?' MSG 12 He will show you a spacious second-story room, swept and ready. Prepare the meal there." NIV 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there." MSG 13 They left, found everything just as he told them, and prepared the Passover meal. NIV 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. MSG 14 When it was time, he sat down, all the apostles with him, NIV 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. MSG 15 and said, "You've no idea how much I have looked forward to eating this Passover meal with you before I enter my time of suffering. NIV 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. MSG 16 It's the last one I'll eat until we all eat it together in the kingdom of God." NIV 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God." MSG 17 Taking the cup, he blessed it, then said, "Take this and pass it among you. NIV 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you. MSG 18 As for me, I'll not drink wine again until the kingdom of God arrives." NIV 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes." MSG 19 Taking bread, he blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, given for you. Eat it in my memory." NIV 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." MSG 20 He did the same with the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you. NIV 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. MSG 21 "Do you realize that the hand of the one who is betraying me is at this moment on this table? NIV 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. MSG 22 It's true that the Son of Man is going down a path already marked out - no surprises there. But for the one who turns him in, turns traitor to the Son of Man, this is doomsday." NIV 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him." MSG 23 They immediately became suspicious of each other and began quizzing one another, wondering who might be about to do this. NIV 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this. MSG 24 Within minutes they were bickering over who of them would end up the greatest. NIV 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. MSG 25 But Jesus intervened: "Kings like to throw their weight around and people in authority like to give themselves fancy titles. NIV 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. MSG 26 It's not going to be that way with you. Let the senior among you become like the junior; let the leader act the part of the servant. NIV 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. MSG 27 "Who would you rather be: the one who eats the dinner or the one who serves the dinner? You'd rather eat and be served, right? But I've taken my place among you as the one who serves. NIV 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. MSG 28 And you've stuck with me through thick and thin. NIV 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials. MSG 29 Now I confer on you the royal authority my Father conferred on me NIV 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, MSG 30 so you can eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and be strengthened as you take up responsibilities among the congregations of God's people. NIV 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. MSG 31 "Simon, stay on your toes. Satan has tried his best to separate all of you from me, like chaff from wheat. NIV 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. MSG 32 Simon, I've prayed for you in particular that you not give in or give out. When you have come through the time of testing, turn to your companions and give them a fresh start." NIV 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers." MSG 33 Peter said, "Master, I'm ready for anything with you. I'd go to jail for you. I'd die for you!" NIV 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death." MSG 34 Jesus said, "I'm sorry to have to tell you this, Peter, but before the rooster crows you will have three times denied that you know me." NIV 34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me." MSG 35 Then Jesus said, "When I sent you out and told you to travel light, to take only the bare necessities, did you get along all right?" "Certainly," they said, "we got along just fine." NIV 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered. MSG 36 He said, "This is different. Get ready for trouble. Look to what you'll need; there are difficult times ahead. Pawn your coat and get a sword. NIV 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. MSG 37 What was written in Scripture, 'He was lumped in with the criminals,' gets its final meaning in me. Everything written about me is now coming to a conclusion." NIV 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." MSG 38 They said, "Look, Master, two swords!" But he said, "Enough of that; no more sword talk!" NIV 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied. MSG 39 Leaving there, he went, as he so often did, to Mount Olives. The disciples followed him. NIV 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. MSG 40 When they arrived at the place, he said, "Pray that you don't give in to temptation." NIV 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation." MSG 41 He pulled away from them about a stone's throw, knelt down, and prayed, NIV 41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, MSG 42 "Father, remove this cup from me. But please, not what I want. What do you want?" NIV 42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." MSG 43 At once an angel from heaven was at his side, strengthening him. NIV 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. MSG 44 He prayed on all the harder. Sweat, wrung from him like drops of blood, poured off his face. NIV 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. MSG 45 He got up from prayer, went back to the disciples and found them asleep, drugged by grief. NIV 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. MSG 46 He said, "What business do you have sleeping? Get up. Pray so you won't give in to temptation." NIV 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation." MSG 47 No sooner were the words out of his mouth than a crowd showed up, Judas, the one from the Twelve, in the lead. He came right up to Jesus to kiss him. NIV 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, MSG 48 Jesus said, "Judas, you would betray the Son of Man with a kiss?" NIV 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?" MSG 49 When those with him saw what was happening, they said, "Master, shall we fight?" NIV 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?" MSG 50 One of them took a swing at the Chief Priest's servant and cut off his right ear. NIV 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. MSG 51 Jesus said, "Let them be. Even in this." Then, touching the servant's ear, he healed him. NIV 51 But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him. MSG 52 Jesus spoke to those who had come - high priests, Temple police, religion leaders: "What is this, jumping me with swords and clubs as if I were a dangerous criminal? NIV 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? MSG 53 Day after day I've been with you in the Temple and you've not so much as lifted a hand against me. But do it your way - it's a dark night, a dark hour." NIV 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." MSG 54 Arresting Jesus, they marched him off and took him into the house of the Chief Priest. Peter followed, but at a safe distance. NIV 54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. MSG 55 In the middle of the courtyard some people had started a fire and were sitting around it, trying to keep warm. NIV 55 But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. MSG 56 One of the serving maids sitting at the fire noticed him, then took a second look and said, "This man was with him!" NIV 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him." MSG 57 He denied it, "Woman, I don't even know him." NIV 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said. MSG 58 A short time later, someone else noticed him and said, "You're one of them." But Peter denied it: "Man, I am not." NIV 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied. MSG 59 About an hour later, someone else spoke up, really adamant: "He's got to have been with him! He's got 'Galilean' written all over him." NIV 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean." MSG 60 Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about." At that very moment, the last word hardly off his lips, a rooster crowed. NIV 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. MSG 61 Just then, the Master turned and looked at Peter. Peter remembered what the Master had said to him: "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." NIV 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." MSG 62 He went out and cried and cried and cried. NIV 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly. MSG 63 The men in charge of Jesus began poking fun at him, slapping him around. NIV 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. MSG 64 They put a blindfold on him and taunted, "Who hit you that time?" NIV 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?" MSG 65 They were having a grand time with him. NIV 65 And they said many other insulting things to him. MSG 66 When it was morning, the religious leaders of the people and the high priests and scholars all got together and brought him before their High Council. NIV 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. MSG 67 They said, "Are you the Messiah?" NIV 67 "If you are the Christ, " they said, "tell us." Jesus answered, "If I tell you, you will not believe me, MSG 68 If I asked what you meant by your question, you wouldn't answer me. NIV 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer. MSG 69 So here's what I have to say: From here on the Son of Man takes his place at God's right hand, the place of power." NIV 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God." MSG 70 They all said, "So you admit your claim to be the Son of God?" "You're the ones who keep saying it," he said. NIV 70 They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am." MSG 71 But they had made up their minds, "Why do we need any more evidence? We've all heard him as good as say it himself." NIV 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
