Luke 22:1-6

Plot to kill Jesus

1 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called Passover, was approaching.
2 The chief priests and the legal experts were looking for a way to kill Jesus, because they were afraid of the people.
3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, who was one of the Twelve.
4 He went out and discussed with the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard how he could hand Jesus over to them.
5 They were delighted and arranged payment for him.
6 He agreed and began looking for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them—a time when the crowds would be absent.
