Matthew 26:20-35New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Last Passover
20 Now when evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the twelve disciples.21 As they were eating, He said, “Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me.”22 Being deeply grieved, they [a]each one began to say to Him, “Surely not I, Lord?”23 And He answered, “He who dipped his hand with Me in the bowl is the one who will betray Me.24 The Son of Man is to go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good [b]for that man if he had not been born.”25 And Judas, who was betraying Him, said, “Surely it is not I, Rabbi?” Jesus *said to him, “You have said it yourself.”
The Lord’s Supper Instituted
26 While they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and [c]after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”27 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you;28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”
30 After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
31 Then Jesus *said to them, “You will all [d]fall away because of Me this night, for it is written, ‘I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall bescattered.’32 But after I have been raised, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.”33 But Peter said to Him, “Even though all may [e]fall away because of You, I will never fall away.”34 Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you that this very night, before a 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.” All the disciples said the same thing too.
