Luke 22:14 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:14

And when the hour was come
When it was evening, the last of the two evenings, when it was dark, at least after six o'clock; (See Gill on Matthew 26:20). he sat down;
or lay along on a couch, as was the custom; see the note, as before: and the twelve apostles with him;
for Judas, after he had made his bargain with the chief priests, Scribes, and elders, came and took his place with the rest of the apostles, both to cover his sin, and to watch the best opportunity of betraying his master.

13 And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.
14 When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him.
15 And He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;
16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."
