Luke 22; John 13

1 The Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was near. 2 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for a way to get rid of Jesus. They were afraid of the people. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, who was called Iscariot. Judas was one of the Twelve. 4 He went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard. He talked with them about how he could hand Jesus over to them. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money. 6 Judas accepted their offer. He watched for the right time to hand Jesus over to them. He wanted to do it when no crowd was around. 7 Then the day of Unleavened Bread came. That was the time the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 8 Jesus sent Peter and John on ahead. "Go," he told them. "Prepare for us to eat the Passover meal." 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked. 10 Jesus replied, "When you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house he enters. 11 Then say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks, "Where is the guest room? Where can I eat the Passover meal with my disciples?" ' 12 He will show you a large upstairs room with furniture in it. Prepare for us to eat there." 13 Peter and John left. They found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover meal. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles took their places at the table. 15 He said to them, "I have really looked forward to eating this Passover meal with you. I wanted to do this before I suffer. 16 I tell you, I will not eat the Passover meal again until it is celebrated in God's kingdom." 17 After Jesus took the cup, he gave thanks. He said, "Take this cup and share it among yourselves. 18 I tell you, I will not drink wine with you again until God's kingdom comes." 19 Then Jesus took bread. He gave thanks and broke it. He handed it to them and said, "This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do it in memory of me." 20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup. He said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. It is poured out for you. 21 But someone here is going to hand me over to my enemies. His hand is with mine on the table. 22 The Son of Man will go to his death, just as God has already decided. But how terrible it will be for the one who hands him over!" 23 The apostles began to ask each other about this. They wondered which one of them would do it. 24 They also started to argue. They disagreed about which of them was thought to be the most important person. 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the nations hold power over their people. And those who order them around call themselves Protectors. 26 But you must not be like that. Instead, the most important among you should be like the youngest. The one who rules should be like the one who serves. 27 "Who is more important? Is it the one at the table, or the one who serves? Isn't it the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 You have stood by me during my troubles. 29 And I give you a kingdom, just as my Father gave me a kingdom. 30 Then you will eat and drink at my table in my kingdom. And you will sit on thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. 31 "Simon, Simon! Satan has asked to sift you disciples like wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon. I have prayed that your faith will not fail. When you have turned back, help your brothers to be strong." 33 But Simon replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death." 34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, you will say three times that you don't know me. And you will do it before the rooster crows today." 35 Then Jesus asked the disciples, "Did you need anything when I sent you without a purse, bag or sandals?" "Nothing," they answered. 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it. And also take a bag. If you don't have a sword, sell your coat and buy one. 37 It is written, 'He was counted among those who had committed crimes.'(Isaiah 53:12) I tell you that what is written about me must come true. Yes, it is already coming true." 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives. His disciples followed him. 40 When they reached the place, Jesus spoke. "Pray that you won't fall into sin when you are tempted," he said to them. 41 Then he went a short distance away from them. There he got down on his knees and prayed. 42 He said, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup of suffering away from me. But do what you want, not what I want." 43 An angel from heaven appeared to Jesus and gave him strength. 44 Because he was very sad and troubled, he prayed even harder. His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. 45 After that, he got up from prayer and went back to the disciples. He found them sleeping. They were worn out because they were very sad. 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up! Pray that you won't fall into sin when you are tempted." 47 While Jesus was still speaking, a crowd came up. The man named Judas was leading them. He was one of the Twelve. Judas approached Jesus to kiss him. 48 But Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you handing over the Son of Man with a kiss?" 49 Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen. So they said, "Lord, should we use our swords against them?" 50 One of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered, "Stop this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him. 52 Then Jesus spoke to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders. They had all come for him. "Am I leading a band of armed men against you?" he asked. "Do you have to come with swords and clubs? 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courtyard. And you didn't lay a hand on me. But this is your hour. This is when darkness rules." 54 Then the men arrested Jesus and led him away. They took him into the high priest's house. Peter followed from far away. 55 They started a fire in the middle of the courtyard. Then they sat down together. Peter sat down with them. 56 A female servant saw him sitting there in the firelight. She looked closely at him. Then she said, "This man was with Jesus." 57 But Peter said he had not been with him. "Woman, I don't know him," he said. 58 A little later someone else saw Peter. "You also are one of them," he said. "No," Peter replied. "I'm not!" 59 About an hour later, another person spoke up. "This fellow must have been with Jesus," he said. "He is from Galilee." 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked right at Peter. Then Peter remembered what the Lord had spoken to him. "The rooster will crow today," Jesus had said. "Before it does, you will say three times that you don't know me." 62 Peter went outside. He broke down and sobbed. 63 There were men guarding Jesus. They began laughing at him and beating him. 64 They blindfolded him. They said, "Prophesy! Who hit you?" 65 They also said many other things to make fun of him. 66 At dawn the elders of the people met together. These included the chief priests and the teachers of the law. Jesus was led to them. 67 "If you are the Christ," they said, "tell us." Jesus answered, "If I tell you, you will not believe me. 68 And if I asked you, you would not answer. 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God." 70 They all asked, "Are you the Son of God then?" He replied, "You are right in saying that I am." 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more witnesses? We have heard it from his own lips."
1 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world. It was time for him to go to the Father. Jesus loved his disciples who were in the world. So he now showed them how much he really loved them. 2 The evening meal was being served. The devil had already tempted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. He had told Judas to hand Jesus over to his enemies. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put everything under his power. He also knew he had come from God and was returning to God. 4 So he got up from the meal and took off his outer clothes. He wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a large bowl. Then he began to wash his disciples' feet. He dried them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 6 He came to Simon Peter. "Lord," Peter said to him, "are you going to wash my feet?" 7 Jesus replied, "You don't realize now what I am doing. But later you will understand." 8 "No," said Peter. "You will never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you can't share life with me." 9 "Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet! Wash my hands and my head too!" 10 Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs to wash only his feet. The rest of his body is clean. And you are clean. But not all of you are." 11 Jesus knew who was going to hand him over to his enemies. That was why he said not every one was clean. 12 When Jesus finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes. Then he returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them. 13 "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord.' You are right. That is what I am. 14 I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet. So you also should wash one another's feet. 15 I have given you an example. You should do as I have done for you. 16 "What I'm about to tell you is true. A servant is not more important than his master. And a messenger is not more important than the one who sends him. 17 Now you know these things. So you will be blessed if you do them. 18 "I am not talking about all of you. I know those I have chosen. But this will happen so that Scripture will come true. It says, 'The one who shares my bread has deserted me.'(Psalm 41:9) 19 "I am telling you now, before it happens. When it does happen, you will believe that I am he. 20 What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who accepts someone I send accepts me. And anyone who accepts me accepts the One who sent me." 21 After he had said this, Jesus' spirit was troubled. Here is the witness he gave. "What I'm about to tell you is true," he said. "One of you is going to hand me over to my enemies." 22 His disciples stared at one another. They had no idea which one of them he meant. 23 The disciple Jesus loved was next to him at the table. 24 Simon Peter motioned to that disciple. He said, "Ask Jesus which one he means." 25 The disciple was leaning back against Jesus. He asked him, "Lord, who is it?" 26 Jesus answered, "It is the one I will give this piece of bread to. I will give it to him after I have dipped it in the dish." He dipped the piece of bread. Then he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "Do quickly what you are going to do," Jesus told him. 28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29 Judas was in charge of the money. So some of the disciples thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast. Others thought Jesus was talking about giving something to poor people. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night. 31 After Judas was gone, Jesus spoke. He said, "Now the Son of Man receives glory. And he brings glory to God. 32 If the Son brings glory to God, God himself will bring glory to the Son. God will do it at once. 33 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me. Just as I told the Jews, so I am telling you now. You can't come where I am going. 34 "I give you a new command. Love one another. You must love one another, just as I have loved you. 35 If you love one another, everyone will know you are my disciples." 36 Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going you can't follow now. But you will follow me later." 37 "Lord," Peter asked, "why can't I follow you now? I will give my life for you." 38 Then Jesus answered, "Will you really give your life for me? What I'm about to tell you is true. Before the rooster crows, you will say three times that you don't know me!
