Luke 22:24-65

Who Is Greatest

24 And there arose also 1a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest.
25 2And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called 'Benefactors.'
26 "But it is not this way with you, 3but the one who is the greatest among you must become like 4the youngest, and the leader like the servant.
27 "For 5who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But 6I am among * you as the one who serves.
28 "You are those who have stood by Me in My 7trials;
29 and just as My Father has granted Me a 8kingdom, I grant you
30 that you may 9eat and drink at My table in My 10kingdom, and 11you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 "Simon, Simon, behold, 12Satan has demanded permission to 13sift you like wheat;
32 but I 14have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, 15strengthen your brothers."
33 16But he said to Him, "Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!"
34 And He said, "I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me."
35 And He said to them, "17When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, "No, nothing."
36 And He said to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
37 "For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, '18AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH TRANSGRESSORS '; for 19that which refers to Me has its fulfillment."
38 They said, "Lord, look, here are two 20swords." And He said to them, "It is enough."

The Garden of Gethsemane

39 21And He came out and proceeded 22as was His custom to 23the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him.
40 24When He arrived at the place, He said to them, "25Pray that you may not enter into temptation."
41 And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and He 26knelt * down * and began to pray,
42 saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this 27cup from Me; 28yet not My will, but Yours be done."
43 Now an 29angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him.
44 And 30being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.
45 When He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow,
46 and said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up and 31pray that you may not enter into temptation."

Jesus Betrayed by Judas

47 32While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him.
48 But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, shall we strike with the 33sword?"
50 And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear.
51 But Jesus answered and said, "Stop! No more of this." And He touched his ear and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests and 34officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs 35as you would against a robber?
53 "While I was with you daily * in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours."

Jesus' Arrest

54 36Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but 37Peter was following at a distance.
55 38After they had kindled a fire in the middle of 39the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them.
56 And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, "This man was with Him too."
57 But he denied it, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him."
58 A little later, 40another saw him and said, "You are one of them too!" But Peter said, "Man, I am not!"
59 After about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, "Certainly * this man also was with Him, 41for he is a Galilean too."
60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are talking about." Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.
61 42The Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, "43Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times."
62 And he went out and wept bitterly.
63 44Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him,
64 and they blindfolded Him and were asking Him, saying, "45Prophesy, who is the one who hit You?"
65 And they were saying many other things against Him, 46blaspheming.
