NLT 1 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he said to his disciples, NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, NLT 2 "As you know, the Passover celebration begins in two days, and I, the Son of Man, will be betrayed and crucified." NIV 2 "As you know, the Passover is two days away--and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified." NLT 3 At that same time the leading priests and other leaders were meeting at the residence of Caiaphas, the high priest, NIV 3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, NLT 4 to discuss how to capture Jesus secretly and put him to death. NIV 4 and they plotted to arrest Jesus in some sly way and kill him. NLT 5 "But not during the Passover," they agreed, "or there will be a riot." NIV 5 "But not during the Feast," they said, "or there may be a riot among the people." NLT 6 Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had leprosy. NIV 6 While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, NLT 7 During supper, a woman came in with a beautiful jar of expensive perfume and poured it over his head. NIV 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. NLT 8 The disciples were indignant when they saw this. "What a waste of money," they said. NIV 8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. "Why this waste?" they asked. NLT 9 "She could have sold it for a fortune and given the money to the poor." NIV 9 "This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor." NLT 10 But Jesus replied, "Why berate her for doing such a good thing to me? NIV 10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. NLT 11 You will always have the poor among you, but I will not be here with you much longer. NIV 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. NLT 12 She has poured this perfume on me to prepare my body for burial. NIV 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. NLT 13 I assure you, wherever the Good News is preached throughout the world, this woman's deed will be talked about in her memory." NIV 13 I tell you the truth, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her." NLT 14 Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples, went to the leading priests NIV 14 Then one of the Twelve--the one called Judas Iscariot--went to the chief priests NLT 15 and asked, "How much will you pay me to betray Jesus to you?" And they gave him thirty pieces of silver. NIV 15 and asked, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?" So they counted out for him thirty silver coins. NLT 16 From that time on, Judas began looking for the right time and place to betray Jesus. NIV 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over. NLT 17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to prepare the Passover supper?" NIV 17 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?" NLT 18 "As you go into the city," he told them, "you will see a certain man. Tell him, 'The Teacher says, My time has come, and I will eat the Passover meal with my disciples at your house.'" NIV 18 He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.' " NLT 19 So the disciples did as Jesus told them and prepared the Passover supper there. NIV 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. NLT 20 When it was evening, Jesus sat down at the table with the twelve disciples. NIV 20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. NLT 21 While they were eating, he said, "The truth is, one of you will betray me." NIV 21 And while they were eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me." NLT 22 Greatly distressed, one by one they began to ask him, "I'm not the one, am I, Lord?" NIV 22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?" NLT 23 He replied, "One of you who is eating with me now will betray me. NIV 23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. NLT 24 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 24 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 25 Judas, the one who would betray him, also asked, "Teacher, I'm not the one, am I?"And Jesus told him, "You have said it yourself." NIV 25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, "Surely not I, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "Yes, it is you." NLT 26 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 and eat it, for this is my body." NIV 26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." NLT 27 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, "Each of you drink from it, NIV 27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. NLT 28 for this is my blood, which seals the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out to forgive the sins of many. NIV 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. NLT 29 Mark my words -- I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom." NIV 29 I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom." NLT 30 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. NIV 30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. NLT 31 "Tonight all of you will desert me," Jesus told them. "For the Scriptures say, 'God will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' NIV 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.' NLT 32 But after I have been raised from the dead, I will go ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there." NIV 32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." NLT 33 Peter declared, "Even if everyone else deserts you, I never will." NIV 33 Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will." NLT 34 "Peter," Jesus replied, "the truth is, this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." NIV 34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." NLT 35 "No!" Peter insisted. "Not even if I have to die with you! I will never deny you!" And all the other disciples vowed the same. NIV 35 But Peter declared, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." And all the other disciples said the same. NLT 36 Then Jesus brought them to an olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, "Sit here while I go on ahead to pray." NIV 36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray." NLT 37 He took Peter and Zebedee's two sons, James and John, and he began to be filled with anguish and deep distress. NIV 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. NLT 38 He told them, "My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and watch with me." NIV 38 Then he said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me." NLT 39 He went on a little farther and fell face down on the ground, praying, "My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will, not mine." NIV 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." NLT 40 Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, "Couldn't you stay awake and watch with me even one hour? NIV 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. NLT 41 Keep alert and pray. Otherwise temptation will overpower you. For though the spirit is willing enough, the body is weak!" NIV 41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." NLT 42 Again he left them and prayed, "My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away until I drink it, your will be done." NIV 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." NLT 43 He returned to them again and found them sleeping, for they just couldn't keep their eyes open. NIV 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. NLT 44 So he went back to pray a third time, saying the same things again. NIV 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. NLT 45 Then he came to the disciples and said, "Still sleeping? Still resting? Look, the time has come. I, the Son of Man, am betrayed into the hands of sinners. NIV 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. NLT 46 Up, let's be going. See, my betrayer is here!" NIV 46 Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!" NLT 47 And even 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 and other leaders of the people. NIV 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. NLT 48 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." NIV 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him." NLT 49 So Judas came straight to Jesus. "Greetings, Teacher!" he exclaimed and gave him the kiss. NIV 49 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him. NLT 50 Jesus said, "My friend, go ahead and do what you have come for." Then the others grabbed Jesus and arrested him. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for." Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. NLT 51 One of the men with Jesus pulled out a sword and slashed off an ear of the high priest's servant. NIV 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. NLT 52 "Put away your sword," Jesus told him. "Those who use the sword will be killed by the sword. NIV 52 "Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. NLT 53 Don't you realize that I could ask my Father for thousands of angels to protect us, and he would send them instantly? NIV 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? NLT 54 But if I did, how would the Scriptures be fulfilled that describe what must happen now?" NIV 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?" NLT 55 Then Jesus said to the crowd, "Am I some dangerous criminal, that you have come armed with swords and clubs to arrest me? Why didn't you arrest me in the Temple? I was there teaching every day. NIV 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. NLT 56 But this is all happening to fulfill the words of the prophets as recorded in the Scriptures." At that point, all the disciples deserted him and fled. NIV 56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples deserted him and fled. NLT 57 Then the people who had arrested Jesus led him to the home of Caiaphas, the high priest, where the teachers of religious law and other leaders had gathered. NIV 57 Those who had arrested Jesus took him to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the teachers of the law and the elders had assembled. NLT 58 Meanwhile, Peter was following far behind and eventually came to the courtyard of the high priest's house. He went in, sat with the guards, and waited to see what was going to happen to Jesus. NIV 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. NLT 59 Inside, the leading priests and the entire high council were trying to find witnesses who would lie about Jesus, so they could put him to death. NIV 59 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. NLT 60 But even though they found many who agreed to give false witness, there was no testimony they could use. Finally, two men were found NIV 60 But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two came forward NLT 61 who declared, "This man said, 'I am able to destroy the Temple of God and rebuild it in three days.'" NIV 61 and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' " NLT 62 Then the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Well, aren't you going to answer these charges? What do you have to say for yourself?" NIV 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?" NLT 63 But Jesus remained silent. Then the high priest said to him, "I demand in the name of the living God that you tell us whether you are the Messiah, the Son of God." NIV 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." NLT 64 Jesus replied, "Yes, it is as you say. And in the future 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 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." NLT 65 Then the high priest tore his clothing to show his horror, shouting, "Blasphemy! Why do we need other witnesses? You have all heard his blasphemy. NIV 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. NLT 66 What is your verdict?" "Guilty!" they shouted. "He must die!" NIV 66 What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered. NLT 67 Then they spit in Jesus' face and hit him with their fists. And some slapped him, NIV 67 Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him NLT 68 saying, "Prophesy to us, you Messiah! Who hit you that time?" NIV 68 and said, "Prophesy to us, Christ. Who hit you?" NLT 69 Meanwhile, as Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, a servant girl came over and said to him, "You were one of those with Jesus the Galilean." NIV 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. NLT 70 But Peter denied it in front of everyone. "I don't know what you are talking about," he said. NIV 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said. NLT 71 Later, out by the gate, another servant girl noticed him and said to those standing around, "This man was with Jesus of Nazareth." NIV 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." NLT 72 Again Peter denied it, this time with an oath. "I don't even know the man," he said. NIV 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!" NLT 73 A little later some other bystanders came over to him and said, "You must be one of them; we can tell by your Galilean accent." NIV 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." NLT 74 Peter said, "I swear by God, I don't know the man." And immediately the rooster crowed. NIV 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. NLT 75 Suddenly, Jesus' words flashed through Peter's mind: "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." And he went away, crying bitterly. NIV 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.
