2. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might kill Him, for they feared the people.
4. So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them.
10. And He said to them, "Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house which he enters.
11. Then you shall say to the master of the house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?" '
15. Then He said to them, "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;
19. And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
20. Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
22. And truly the Son of Man goes as it has been determined, but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!"
25. And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called 'benefactors.'
26. But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves.
27. For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.
30. that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
31. And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
32. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."
34. Then He said, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me."
35. And He said to them, "When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?" So they said, "Nothing."
36. Then He said to them, "But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.
37. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: 'And He was numbered with the transgressors.' For the things concerning Me have an end."
39. Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him.
42. saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."
44. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
47. And while He was still speaking, behold, a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him.
49. When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?"
52. Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, "Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs?
53. When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness."
54. Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest's house. But Peter followed at a distance.
55. Now when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them.
56. And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, "This man was also with Him."
58. And after a little while another saw him and said, "You also are of them." But Peter said, "Man, I am not!"
59. Then after about an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed, saying, "Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean."
60. But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are saying!" Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.
61. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, "Before the rooster crows , you will deny Me three times."
64. And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, "Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?"
66. As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying,
67. If You are the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will by no means believe.
70. Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said to them, "You rightly say that I am."
