7 Then came the first day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.8 And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it.”9 They said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare it?”10 And He said to them, “When you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters.11 And you shall say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’12 And he will show you a large, furnished upper room; prepare it there.”13 And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.
The Lord’s Supper
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.”
24 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest.25 And 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, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.27 For who 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 I am among you as the one who serves.
28 “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Matthew 26:17-20New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?”18 And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near; I am to keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.”’”19 The disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
The Last Passover
20 Now when evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the twelve disciples.
12 On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when [a]the Passover lamb was being sacrificed, His disciples *said to Him, “Where do You want us to go and prepare for You to eat the Passover?”13 And He *sent two of His disciples and *said to them, “Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him;14 and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is My guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’15 And he himself will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; prepare for us there.”16 The disciples went out and came to the city, and found it just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.
