38 Groaning deeply again, Jesus came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying in front of it. 39 Jesus said, “Remove the stone.”
Martha, the dead man’s sister, told him, “Lord, there must be a stench by now, because he’s been dead for four days.”
40 Jesus told her, “I told you that if you believed you would see God’s glory, didn’t I?”41 So they removed the stone.
Then Jesus looked upward and said, “Father, I thank you for hearing me.42 I know that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent me.”
Matthew 15:35-37International Standard Version (ISV)
35 Ordering the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks. Then he broke them in pieces and kept giving them to his disciples, and the disciples gave them[a] to the crowds. 37 All of them ate until they were filled, then the disciples[b] picked up what was left of the broken pieces—seven baskets full.
14 Now when the hour came, Jesus[a] took his place at the table, along with his apostles. 15 He told them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover meal with you before I suffer,16 because I tell all of you,[b] I will never eat it again until it finds its fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”
17 Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and said, “Take this and share it among yourselves,18 because I tell you, from now on I will never drink the product of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”
19 Then he took a loaf of bread, gave thanks, broke it in pieces, and handed it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Keep on doing this in memory of me.”
20 He did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant sealed[c] by my blood, which is being poured out for you.
