Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus(A)
14 (B)Then one of the twelve, called (C)Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, (D)“What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver. 16 So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.
Jesus Celebrates Passover with His Disciples(E)
17 (F)Now on the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, “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, (G)“My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.” ’ ”
19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
22 And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to Him, “Lord, is it I?”
23 He answered and said, (J)“He who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me. 24 The Son of Man indeed goes just (K)as it is written of Him, but (L)woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! (M)It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.”
25 Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?”
He said to him, “You have said it.”
Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper(N)
27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, (R)“Drink from it, all of you. 28 For (S)this is My blood (T)of the [b]new covenant, which is shed (U)for many for the [c]remission of sins. 29 But (V)I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on (W)until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”
30 (X)And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial(Y)
(AB)‘I will strike the Shepherd,
And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’
32 But after I have been raised, (AC)I will go before you to Galilee.”
33 Peter answered and said to Him, “Even if all are [e]made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.”
34 Jesus said to him, (AD)“Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.”
35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!”
And so said all the disciples.
The Prayer in the Garden(AE)
36 (AF)Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and (AG)the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. 38 Then He said to them, (AH)“My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”
40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41 (AM)Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. (AN)The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
42 Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, [f]if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” 43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
44 So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour [g]is at hand, and the Son of Man is being (AO)betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”
Betrayal and Arrest in Gethsemane(AP)
47 And (AQ)while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.
48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.” 49 Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” (AR)and kissed Him.
50 But Jesus said to him, (AS)“Friend, why have you come?”
Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. 51 And suddenly, (AT)one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
52 But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, (AU)for all who take the sword will [h]perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with (AV)more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, (AW)that it must happen thus?”
55 In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not seize Me. 56 But all this was done that the (AX)Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.”
Then (AY)all the disciples forsook Him and fled.Read full chapter

Judas Hangs Himself(A)
3 (B)Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty (C)pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.”
And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!”
5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and (D)departed, and went and hanged himself.
6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood.” 7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. 8 Therefore that field has been called (E)the Field of Blood to this day.
9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, (F)“And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, 10 and (G)gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.”Read full chapter
