disciples went into the city and found everything just as Jesus had said, and they prepared
the Passover meal there.
17 In the evening Jesus arrived with the
Twelve. 18 As they were at the table* eating, Jesus
said, “I tell you the truth, one of you eating with
me here will betray me.”
19 Greatly distressed, each one asked in turn,
“Am I the one?”
20 He replied, “It is one of you twelve who is
eating from this bowl with me. 21 For the Son of
Man* must die, as the Scriptures declared long
ago. But how terrible it will be for the one who
betrays him. It would be far better for that man
if he had never been born!”
22 As they were eating, Jesus took some bread
and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and
gave it to the disciples, saying, “Take it, for this
is my body.”
23 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks
to God for it. He gave it to them, and they all
drank from it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my
blood, which confirms the covenant* between
God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice for many. 25 I tell you the truth, I will not
drink wine again until the day I drink it new in
the Kingdom of God.”
26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the
Mount of Olives.

“You will see the Son of
Man seated in the place
of power at God’s right
hand and coming on
the clouds of heaven.”

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
27 On the way, Jesus told them, “All of you will
desert me. For the Scriptures say,
‘God will strike* the Shepherd,
and the sheep will be scattered.’
28 But
after I am raised from the dead, I will go
ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there.”
29 Peter said to him, “Even if everyone else
deserts you, I never will.”
30 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, Peter—this
very night, before the rooster crows twice, you
will deny three times that you even know me.”
31 “No!” Peter declared emphatically. “Even if
I have to die with you, I will never deny you!”
And all the others vowed the same.
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
32 They went to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and Jesus said, “Sit here while I go and
pray.” 33 He took Peter, James, and John with
him, and he became deeply troubled and distressed. 34 He told them, “My soul is crushed
with grief to the point of death. Stay here and
keep watch with me.”
35 He went on a little farther and fell to the
ground. He prayed that, if it were possible, the
awful hour awaiting him might pass him by.
36 “Abba, Father,”* he cried out, “everything is
possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be
done, not mine.”
37 Then he returned and found the disciples
asleep. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep?
Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour?
38 Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give
in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the
body is weak.”
39 Then Jesus left them again and prayed the
same prayer as before. 40 When he returned to
them again, he found them sleeping, for they
couldn’t keep their eyes open. And they didn’t
know what to say.
41 When he returned to them the third time,
he said, “Go ahead and sleep. Have your rest.
But no—the time has come. The Son of Man is
betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Up, let’s be
going. Look, my betrayer is here!”
Jesus Is Betrayed and Arrested
43 And immediately, even as Jesus said this,
Judas, one of the twelve disciples, arrived with
a crowd of men armed with swords and clubs.
They had been sent by the leading priests, the
teachers of religious law, and the elders. 44 The
traitor, Judas, had given them a prearranged
signal: “You will know which one to arrest
when I greet him with a kiss. Then you can take
him away under guard.” 45 As soon as they arrived, Judas walked up to Jesus. “Rabbi!” he
exclaimed, and gave him the kiss.
46 Then the others grabbed Jesus and arrested
him. 47 But one of the men with Jesus pulled out
his sword and struck the high priest’s slave,
slashing off his ear.
48 Jesus asked them, “Am I some dangerous
revolutionary, that you come with swords and
clubs to arrest me? 49 Why didn’t you arrest me
in the Temple? I was there among you teaching
every day. But these things are happening to fulfill what the Scriptures say about me.”
50 Then all his disciples deserted him and ran
away. 51 One young man following behind was
clothed only in a long linen shirt. When the mob

used for himself. 14:24 Some manuscripts read the new
covenant. 14:27 Greek I will strike. Zech 13:7. 14:36 Abba is
an Aramaic term for “father.”
