Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus(A)
14 Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot(B)—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver.(C) 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time(I) is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”(J)
22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
23 Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me.(K) 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him.(L) But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
Jesus answered, “You have said so.”Read full chapter
