Now the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the pasch, was at hand.
And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put Jesus to death: but they feared the people.
And Satan entered into Judas, who was surnamed Iscariot, one of the twelve.
And he went and discoursed with the chief priests and the magistrates, how he might betray him to them.
And they were glad and covenanted to give him money.
And he promised. And he sought opportunity to betray him in the absence of the multitude.
And the day of the unleavened bread came, on which it was necessary that the pasch should be killed.
And he sent Peter and John, saying: Go, and prepare for us the pasch, that we may eat.
But they said: Where wilt thou that we prepare?
And he said to them: Behold, as you go into the city, there shall meet you a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him into the house where he entereth in.
And you shall say to the goodman of the house: The master saith to thee: Where is the guest chamber, where I may eat the pasch with my disciples?
