Mark 14

NLT 1 It was now two days before the Passover celebration and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The leading priests and the teachers of religious law were still looking for an opportunity to capture Jesus secretly and put him to death. NIV 1 Now the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some sly way to arrest Jesus and kill him. NLT 2 "But not during the Passover," they agreed, "or there will be a riot." NIV 2 "But not during the Feast," they said, "or the people may riot." NLT 3 Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had leprosy. During supper, a woman came in with a beautiful jar of expensive perfume. She broke the seal and poured the perfume over his head. NIV 3 While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head. NLT 4 Some of those at the table were indignant. "Why was this expensive perfume wasted?" they asked. NIV 4 Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, "Why this waste of perfume? NLT 5 "She could have sold it for a small fortune and given the money to the poor!" And they scolded her harshly. NIV 5 It could have been sold for more than a year's wages and the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly. NLT 6 But Jesus replied, "Leave her alone. Why berate her for doing such a good thing to me? NIV 6 "Leave her alone," said Jesus. "Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. NLT 7 You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But I will not be here with you much longer. NIV 7 The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. NLT 8 She has done what she could and has anointed my body for burial ahead of time. NIV 8 She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial. NLT 9 I assure you, wherever the Good News is preached throughout the world, this woman's deed will be talked about in her memory." NIV 9 I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her." NLT 10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples, went to the leading priests to arrange to betray Jesus to them. NIV 10 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them. NLT 11 The leading priests were delighted when they heard why he had come, and they promised him a reward. So he began looking for the right time and place to betray Jesus. NIV 11 They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over. NLT 12 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread (the day the Passover lambs were sacrificed), Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go to prepare the Passover supper?" NIV 12 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?" NLT 13 So Jesus sent two of them into Jerusalem to make the arrangements. "As you go into the city," he told them, "a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. NIV 13 So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. NLT 14 At the house he enters, say to the owner, 'The Teacher asks, Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?' NIV 14 Say to the owner of the house he enters, 'The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?' NLT 15 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." NIV 15 He will show you a large upper room, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there." NLT 16 So the two disciples went on ahead into the city and found everything just as Jesus had said, and they prepared the Passover supper there. NIV 16 The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. NLT 17 In the evening Jesus arrived with the twelve disciples. NIV 17 When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve. NLT 18 As they were sitting around the table eating, Jesus said, "The truth is, one of you will betray me, one of you who is here eating with me." NIV 18 While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me--one who is eating with me." NLT 19 Greatly distressed, one by one they began to ask him, "I'm not the one, am I?" NIV 19 They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, "Surely not I?" NLT 20 He replied, "It is one of you twelve, one who is eating with me now. NIV 20 "It is one of the Twelve," he replied, "one who dips bread into the bowl with me. NLT 21 For I, the Son of Man, must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for my betrayer. Far better for him if he had never been born!" NIV 21 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born." NLT 22 As they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread and asked God's blessing on it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "Take it, for this is my body." NIV 22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take it; this is my body." NLT 23 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. NIV 23 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. NLT 24 And he said to them, "This is my blood, poured out for many, sealing the covenant between God and his people. NIV 24 "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them. NLT 25 I solemnly declare that I will not drink wine again until that day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of God." NIV 25 "I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God." NLT 26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. NIV 26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. NLT 27 "All of you will desert me," Jesus told them. "For the Scriptures say, 'God will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.' NIV 27 "You will all fall away," Jesus told them, "for it is written: " 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.' NLT 28 But after I am raised from the dead, I will go ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there." NIV 28 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." NLT 29 Peter said to him, "Even if everyone else deserts you, I never will." NIV 29 Peter declared, "Even if all fall away, I will not." NLT 30 "Peter," Jesus replied, "the truth is, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times." NIV 30 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "today--yes, tonight--before the rooster crows twice you yourself will disown me three times." NLT 31 "No!" Peter insisted. "Not even if I have to die with you! I will never deny you!" And all the others vowed the same. NIV 31 But Peter insisted emphatically, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." And all the others said the same. NLT 32 And they came to an olive grove called Gethsemane, and Jesus said, "Sit here while I go and pray." NIV 32 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, "Sit here while I pray." NLT 33 He took Peter, James, and John with him, and he began to be filled with horror and deep distress. NIV 33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. NLT 34 He told them, "My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and watch with me." NIV 34 "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death," he said to them. "Stay here and keep watch." NLT 35 He went on a little farther and fell face down on the ground. He prayed that, if it were possible, the awful hour awaiting him might pass him by. NIV 35 Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him. NLT 36 "Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will, not mine." NIV 36 "Abba", Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will." NLT 37 Then he returned and found the disciples asleep. "Simon!" he said to Peter. "Are you asleep? Couldn't you stay awake and watch with me even one hour? NIV 37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Simon," he said to Peter, "are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? NLT 38 Keep alert and pray. Otherwise temptation will overpower you. For though the spirit is willing enough, the body is weak." NIV 38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." NLT 39 Then Jesus left them again and prayed, repeating his pleadings. NIV 39 Once more he went away and prayed the same thing. NLT 40 Again he returned to them and found them sleeping, for they just couldn't keep their eyes open. And they didn't know what to say. NIV 40 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him. NLT 41 When he returned to them the third time, he said, "Still sleeping? Still resting? Enough! The time has come. I, the Son of Man, am betrayed into the hands of sinners. NIV 41 Returning the third time, he said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. NLT 42 Up, let's be going. See, my betrayer is here!" NIV 42 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!" NLT 43 And immediately, as he said this, Judas, one of the twelve disciples, arrived with a mob that was armed with swords and clubs. They had been sent out by the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the other leaders. NIV 43 Just as he was speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, appeared. With him was a crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests, the teachers of the law, and the elders. NLT 44 Judas had given them a prearranged signal: "You will know which one to arrest when I go over and give him the kiss of greeting. Then you can take him away under guard." NIV 44 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him and lead him away under guard." NLT 45 As soon as they arrived, Judas walked up to Jesus. "Teacher!" he exclaimed, and gave him the kiss. NIV 45 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Rabbi!" and kissed him. NLT 46 Then the others grabbed Jesus and arrested him. NIV 46 The men seized Jesus and arrested him. NLT 47 But someone pulled out a sword and slashed off an ear of the high priest's servant. NIV 47 Then one of those standing near drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. NLT 48 Jesus asked them, "Am I some dangerous criminal, that you come armed with swords and clubs to arrest me? NIV 48 "Am I leading a rebellion," said Jesus, "that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? NLT 49 Why didn't you arrest me in the Temple? I was there teaching every day. But these things are happening to fulfill what the Scriptures say about me." NIV 49 Every day I was with you, teaching in the temple courts, and you did not arrest me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled." NLT 50 Meanwhile, all his disciples deserted him and ran away. NIV 50 Then everyone deserted him and fled. NLT 51 There was a young man following along behind, clothed only in a linen nightshirt. When the mob tried to grab him, NIV 51 A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, NLT 52 they tore off his clothes, but he escaped and ran away naked. NIV 52 he fled naked, leaving his garment behind. NLT 53 Jesus was led to the high priest's home where the leading priests, other leaders, and teachers of religious law had gathered. NIV 53 They took Jesus to the high priest, and all the chief priests, elders and teachers of the law came together. NLT 54 Meanwhile, Peter followed far behind and then slipped inside the gates of the high priest's courtyard. For a while he sat with the guards, warming himself by the fire. NIV 54 Peter followed him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest. There he sat with the guards and warmed himself at the fire. NLT 55 Inside, the leading priests and the entire high council were trying to find witnesses who would testify against Jesus, so they could put him to death. But their efforts were in vain. NIV 55 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death, but they did not find any. NLT 56 Many false witnesses spoke against him, but they contradicted each other. NIV 56 Many testified falsely against him, but their statements did not agree. NLT 57 Finally, some men stood up to testify against him with this lie: NIV 57 Then some stood up and gave this false testimony against him: NLT 58 "We heard him say, 'I will destroy this Temple made with human hands, and in three days I will build another, made without human hands.'" NIV 58 "We heard him say, 'I will destroy this man-made temple and in three days will build another, not made by man.' " NLT 59 But even then they didn't get their stories straight! NIV 59 Yet even then their testimony did not agree. NLT 60 Then the high priest stood up before the others and asked Jesus, "Well, aren't you going to answer these charges? What do you have to say for yourself?" NIV 60 Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, "Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?" NLT 61 Jesus made no reply. Then the high priest asked him, "Are you the Messiah, the Son of the blessed God?" NIV 61 But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?" NLT 62 Jesus said, "I am, and you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God's right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven." NIV 62 "I am," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." NLT 63 Then the high priest tore his clothing to show his horror and said, "Why do we need other witnesses? NIV 63 The high priest tore his clothes. "Why do we need any more witnesses?" he asked. NLT 64 You have all heard his blasphemy. What is your verdict?" And they all condemned him to death. NIV 64 "You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?" They all condemned him as worthy of death. NLT 65 Then some of them began to spit at him, and they blindfolded him and hit his face with their fists. "Who hit you that time, you prophet?" they jeered. And even the guards were hitting him as they led him away. NIV 65 Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, "Prophesy!" And the guards took him and beat him. NLT 66 Meanwhile, Peter was below in the courtyard. One of the servant girls who worked for the high priest NIV 66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by. NLT 67 noticed Peter warming himself at the fire. She looked at him closely and then said, "You were one of those with Jesus, the Nazarene." NIV 67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him. "You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus," she said. NLT 68 Peter denied it. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said, and he went out into the entryway. Just then, a rooster crowed. NIV 68 But he denied it. "I don't know or understand what you're talking about," he said, and went out into the entryway. NLT 69 The servant girl saw him standing there and began telling the others, "That man is definitely one of them!" NIV 69 When the servant girl saw him there, she said again to those standing around, "This fellow is one of them." NLT 70 Peter denied it again.A little later some other bystanders began saying to Peter, "You must be one of them because you are from Galilee." NIV 70 Again he denied it. After a little while, those standing near said to Peter, "Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean." NLT 71 Peter said, "I swear by God, I don't know this man you're talking about." NIV 71 He began to call down curses on himself, and he swore to them, "I don't know this man you're talking about." NLT 72 And immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Suddenly, Jesus' words flashed through Peter's mind: "Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times." And he broke down and cried. NIV 72 Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times." And he broke down and wept.
