7 And the [first] day of the Feast of Unleavened-Bread came— on which it-was-necessary that the Passover [lamb] be sacrificed. 8 And He sent-forth Peter and John, having said, “Having gone, prepare the Passover [meal] for us in order that we may eat it ”. 9 And the ones said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare it?” 10 And the One said to them, “Behold— you having entered into the city, a man will meet you carrying a jar of water. Follow him to the house into which he proceeds. 11 And you will say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest-room where I may eat the Passover [meal] with My disciples?”’ 12 And that one will show you a large upstairs-room having been spread [with furnishings]. Prepare it there”. 13 And having gone, they found it just as He had told them. And they prepared the Passover [meal].
The Bread And The Wine Are Given a New Meaning
14 And when the hour came, He fell back [to eat], and the apostles with Him. 15 And He said to them, “I greatly desired to eat this Passover [meal] with you before I suffer. 16 For I say to you that I will by no means eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God”. 17 And having taken a cup[d], having given-thanks, He said “Take this and distribute it to yourselves. 18 For I say to you that I will by no means drink from the fruit of the grapevine from now on until which time the kingdom of God comes”. 19 And having taken bread, having given-thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying “This is My body, the one being given for you. Be doing this for My remembrance”. 20 And similarly the cup after the dining, saying “This cup is the new covenant in My blood— the blood being poured-out for you. 21 Yet behold— the hand of the one handing Me over is with Mine on the table! 22 Because the Son of Man is proceeding according-to the thing having been determined[e]— nevertheless, woe to that man by whom He is being handed-over!” 23 And they began to discuss with themselves as to which of them then the one going to do this thing might be.
The Disciples Argue Over Who Is Greatest. The Greatest Is The Servant of All
24 And a contention also took place among them as to which of them seems[f] to be greater[g]. 25 And the One said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles are lording-over[h] them. And the ones having-authority over them are calling-themselves ‘Benefactors[i]’. 26 But you shall not be so. But let the greater[j] one among you be like the younger one; and the one leading like the one serving. 27 For who is greater, the one reclining-back [to eat] or the one serving? Is it not the one reclining-back? But I am in your midst as the One serving! 28 But you are the ones having continued with Me in My trials. 29 And I am conferring[k] you a kingdom, just as My Father conferred Me 30 so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom. And you will sit on thrones judging[l] the twelve tribes of Israel.

35 And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money-bag and [traveler’s] bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” And the ones said, “Nothing”. 36 And He said to them, “But now[s] let the one having a money-bag take it. Likewise also a [traveler’s] bag. And let the one not having one sell his cloak and buy a sword. 37 For I say to you that this [saying] having been written [in Isa 53:12] must be fulfilled in Me: ‘And He was counted[t] with lawless ones’. For indeed the thing concerning Me has a fulfillment[u]”. 38 And the ones said, “Lord, behold— here are two swords”. And the One said to them, “It is enough”.

39 And having gone out, He went in accordance with His custom to the Mount of Olives. And the disciples also, they followed Him. 40 And having come-to-be at the place, He said to them, “Be praying that you may not enter into temptation”. 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw. And having put down His knees, He was praying, 42 saying “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me. Yet let not My will, but Yours be done”. 43 And[v] an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And having come-to-be in agony, He was praying more-fervently. And His sweat became like[w] drops of blood going down upon the ground. 45 And having arisen from prayer, having come to the disciples, He found them being asleep because of grief. 46 And He said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Having stood-up, be praying that[x] you may not enter into temptation”.

And he drew-near to Jesus to kiss Him. 48 And Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you handing-over the Son of Man with a kiss?” 49 And the ones around Him, having seen the thing which will happen, said “Lord, shall we strike with a sword?” 50 And a certain one of them struck the slave of the high priest and took-off his right ear. 51 But having responded, Jesus said, “Allow[z] up to this”. And having touched his ear, He healed him. 52 And Jesus said to the chief priests and captains of the temple and elders having come against Him, “Did you come out with swords and clubs as-if against a robber? 53 Daily while I was being with you in the temple, you did not stretch-out your hands against Me. But this is your hour, and the authority of darkness”.
Jesus Is Led Into The House of The High Priest; Peter Denies Him Three Times
54 And having arrested Him, they led Him, and brought Him into the house of the high priest. And Peter was following at-a-distance. 55 And they having kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard, and having sat-down-together, Peter was sitting amidst them. 56 And a certain servant-girl, having seen him sitting toward the light, and having looked-intently at him, said “This one also was with Him”. 57 But the one denied it, saying “I do not know Him, woman”. 58 And after a short time, another man having seen him said, “You also are one of them”. But Peter said, “Man, I am not!” 59 And about one hour having passed[aa], a certain other man was insisting, saying “In accordance with truth, this one also was with Him, for he also is a Galilean”. 60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying”. And at-once, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 61 And having turned, the Lord looked-at Peter. And Peter was reminded of the word of the Lord— how He said to him that “Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three-times”. 62 And having gone outside, he wept bitterly. 63 And the men holding Him were mocking Him while beating Him. 64 And having covered Him, they were asking Him, saying “Prophesy— who is the one having hit You?” 65 And blaspheming, they were saying many other things against Him.
