The Plot to Kill Jesus

26 When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, (A)“You know that after two days (B)the Passover is coming, and (C)the Son of Man (D)will be delivered up to be crucified.”

(E)Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in (F)the palace of the high priest, whose name was (G)Caiaphas, (H)and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. But they said, “Not during the feast, (I)lest there be an uproar among the people.”

Judas to Betray Jesus

14 (A)Then one of the twelve, whose name was (B)Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they (C)paid him (D)thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity (E)to betray him.

The Passover with the Disciples

17 (F)Now on (G)the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, (H)‘The Teacher says, (I)My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’” 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover.

20 (J)When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve.[a] 21 And as they were eating, (K)he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And they were very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23 He answered, (L)“He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes (M)as it is written of him, but (N)woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! (O)It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, “Is it I, (P)Rabbi?” He said to him, (Q)“You have said so.”

Institution of the Lord's Supper

26 (R)Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and (S)after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; (T)this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he (U)had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for (V)this is my (W)blood of the[b] covenant, which is poured out for (X)many (Y)for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you (Z)in my Father's kingdom.”

The Plot to Kill Jesus

14 (A)It was now two days before (B)the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes (C)were seeking how to arrest him by stealth and kill him, for they said, “Not during the feast, (D)lest there be an uproar from the people.”

Judas to Betray Jesus

10 (A)Then (B)Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, (C)went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to (D)betray him.

The Passover with the Disciples

12 (E)And on (F)the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they (G)sacrificed the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 13 And he sent (H)two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him, 14 and wherever he enters, say to the master of the house, (I)‘The Teacher says, Where is (J)my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 15 And he will show you (K)a large upper room furnished and ready; there prepare for us.” 16 And the disciples set out and went to the city and found it just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

17 (L)And when it was evening, he came with the twelve. 18 And as they were reclining at table and eating, (M)Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me, (N)one who is eating with me.” 19 They began to be sorrowful and to say to him one after another, “Is it I?” 20 He said to them, “It is (O)one of the twelve, (P)one who is dipping bread into the dish with me. 21 For the Son of Man goes (Q)as it is written of him, but (R)woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! (S)It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”

22 (T)And as they were eating, he took bread, and after (U)blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; (V)this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had (W)given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, (X)“This is my (Y)blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for (Z)many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

37 And (A)every day he was teaching in the temple, but (B)at night he went out and lodged on (C)the mount called Olivet. 38 And early in the morning (D)all the people came to him in the temple to hear him.

The Plot to Kill Jesus

22 (E)Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near, which is called (F)the Passover. And the chief priests and the scribes (G)were seeking how to put him to death, for they feared the people.

Judas to Betray Jesus

(H)Then (I)Satan entered into (J)Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. He went away and conferred with the chief priests and (K)officers how he might betray him to them. And they were glad, and agreed to give him money. So he consented and sought an opportunity to (L)betray him to them in the absence of a crowd.

The Passover with the Disciples

(M)Then came (N)the day of Unleavened Bread, on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. So Jesus[a] sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it.” They said to him, “Where will you have us prepare it?” 10 He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he enters 11 and tell the master of the house, (O)‘The Teacher says to you, Where is (P)the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 12 And he will show you (Q)a large upper room furnished; prepare it there.” 13 And they went and found it (R)just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

Institution of the Lord's Supper

14 (S)And when the hour came, he reclined at 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 tell you I will not eat it[b] (T)until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 17 And he took a cup, and (U)when he had given thanks he said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves. 18 (V)For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine (W)until the kingdom of God comes.” 19 (X)And he took bread, and (Y)when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, (Z)“This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, (AA)“This cup that is poured out for you is (AB)the new (AC)covenant in my blood.[c] 21 (AD)But behold, the hand of him who betrays me is (AE)with me on the table. 22 For the Son of Man goes (AF)as it has been determined, but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed!” 23 And they began to question one another, which of them it could be who was going to do this.

Who Is the Greatest?

24 (AG)A dispute also arose among them, as to which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 25 (AH)And he said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles (AI)exercise lordship over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors. 26 (AJ)But not so with you. Rather, let (AK)the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. 27 For who is the greater, (AL)one who reclines at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But (AM)I am among you as the one who serves.

28 “You are those who have stayed with me (AN)in my trials, 29 and (AO)I assign to you, as my Father assigned to me, a kingdom, 30 (AP)that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and (AQ)sit on thrones judging (AR)the twelve tribes of Israel.

Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial

31 “Simon, Simon, behold, (AS)Satan demanded to have you,[d] (AT)that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but (AU)I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, (AV)strengthen your brothers.” 33 Peter[e] said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both (AW)to prison and (AX)to death.” 34 (AY)Jesus[f] said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.”

Scripture Must Be Fulfilled in Jesus

35 And he said to them, (AZ)“When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” 36 He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. 37 For I tell you that (BA)this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: (BB)‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For (BC)what is written about me has its fulfillment.” 38 And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two (BD)swords.” And he said to them, (BE)“It is enough.”

Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet

13 Now (A)before (B)the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that (C)his hour had come (D)to depart out of this world to the Father, (E)having loved (F)his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. During supper, when (G)the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing (H)that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that (I)he had come from God and (J)was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, (K)tied it around his waist. Then he (L)poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” (M)Jesus answered him, “What I am doing (N)you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” (O)Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, (P)“If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10 Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, (Q)except for his feet,[a] but is completely clean. And (R)you[b] are clean, (S)but not every one of you.” 11 (T)For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.”

12 When he had washed their feet and (U)put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, (V)“Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 (W)You call me (X)Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, (Y)you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, (Z)that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, (AA)a servant[c] is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, (AB)blessed are you if you do them. 18 (AC)I am not speaking of all of you; I know (AD)whom I have chosen. But (AE)the Scripture will be fulfilled,[d] (AF)‘He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.’ 19 (AG)I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he. 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, (AH)whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”

One of You Will Betray Me

21 After saying these things, (AI)Jesus was troubled in his spirit, and testified, (AJ)“Truly, truly, I say to you, (AK)one of you will betray me.” 22 (AL)The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom he spoke. 23 (AM)One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining at table (AN)at Jesus' side,[e] 24 so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus[f] of whom he was speaking. 25 (AO)So that disciple, (AP)leaning back against Jesus, said to him, “Lord, who is it?” 26 Jesus answered, (AQ)“It is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread (AR)when I have dipped it.” So when he had dipped the morsel, (AS)he gave it to Judas, (AT)the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 Then after he had taken the morsel, (AU)Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, (AV)“What you are going to do, do quickly.” 28 Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him. 29 Some thought that, (AW)because Judas had the moneybag, Jesus was telling him, “Buy what we need (AX)for the feast,” or that he should (AY)give something to the poor. 30 So, after receiving the morsel of bread, he immediately went out. (AZ)And it was night.

A New Commandment

31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, (BA)“Now is the Son of Man glorified, and (BB)God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him, (BC)God will also glorify him in himself, and (BD)glorify him at once. 33 Little children, (BE)yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and just (BF)as I said to the Jews, so now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’ 34 (BG)A new commandment (BH)I give to you, (BI)that you love one another: (BJ)just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 (BK)By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial

36 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” (BL)Jesus answered him, “Where I am going (BM)you cannot follow me now, (BN)but you will follow afterward.” 37 (BO)Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” 38 Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, (BP)the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times.

24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for[a] you. Do this in remembrance of me.”[b] 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
