In the same way, he gave them the cup after the supper, saying, "This cup is God's new covenant sealed with my blood, which is poured out for you. 1
"But, look! The one who betrays me is here at the table with me! 2
The Son of Man will die as God has decided, but how terrible for that man who betrays him!"
Then they began to ask among themselves which one of them it could be who was going to do this.
An argument broke out among the disciples as to which one of them should be thought of as the greatest. 3
Jesus said to them, "The kings of the pagans have power over their people, and the rulers claim the title "Friends of the People.'
But this is not the way it is with you; rather, the greatest one among you must be like the youngest, and the leader must be like the servant. 4
Who is greater, the one who sits down to eat or the one who serves? The one who sits down, of course. But I am among you as one who serves. 5
"You have stayed with me all through my trials;
and just as my Father has given me the right to rule, so I will give you the same right.
You will eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and you will sit on thrones to rule over the twelve tribes of Israel. 6
"Simon, Simon! Listen! Satan has received permission to test all of you, to separate the good from the bad, as a farmer separates the wheat from the chaff.
But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith will not fail. And when you turn back to me, you must strengthen your brothers."
Peter answered, "Lord, I am ready to go to prison with you and to die with you!"
"I tell you, Peter," Jesus said, "the rooster will not crow tonight until you have said three times that you do not know me."
Then Jesus asked his disciples, "When I sent you out that time without purse, bag, or shoes, did you lack anything?" 7 "Not a thing," they answered.
"But now," Jesus said, "whoever has a purse or a bag must take it; and whoever does not have a sword must sell his coat and buy one.
For I tell you that the scripture which says, "He shared the fate of criminals,' must come true about me, because what was written about me is coming true." 8
The disciples said, "Look! Here are two swords, Lord!" "That is enough!" he replied.
Jesus left the city and went, as he usually did, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples went with him.
When he arrived at the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
