     14:1 Now after two days it was the feast of the Passover and the unleavened bread, and the high-priests and the scribes were seeking how they might take-hold of him in treachery and might kill him; 14:2 but they were saying, Not at the feast, lest there will be an uproar of the people.

     {Mar 14:3-9 & Mat 26:6-13.}

     14:3 And now being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, reclining at a meal, a woman came having an alabaster flask of costly undiluted perfume of nard, and she crushed the alabaster flask and poured it on his head. 14:4 But there were some being indignant to themselves, and saying, *For what purpose has the waste of the perfume happened? 14:5 For* this perfume was able to have been sold*for above three hundred denarii and given to the poor. And they were scolding her.

     14:6 But Jesus said, AllowĎ her. Why are youĎ harassing her? She has worked a good work in me. 14:7For* youĎ always have the poor with youĎ, and whenever youĎ wish, youĎ are able to do them good, but youĎ do not always have me. 14:8What she had, this she did. She took upon herself beforehand to perfume my body *for its burial.14:9And assuredly I am saying to youĎ, Wherever this good-news is preached into the whole world, what also she has done, this will be spoken *for her memorial.

     {Mar 14:10-11 & Mat 26:14-16 & Luk 22:3-6 & Joh 12:2-8.}

     14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went away to the high-priests in order that he might give him up to them. 14:11 Now having heard it, they rejoiced and promised to give him silver. And he was seeking how he might opportunely give him up.

     {Mar 14:12-17 & Mat 26:17-20 & Luk 22:7-18, 22:24-30 Bethany to Jerusalem Thur. Evening.}

     14:12 And on the first day of unleavened bread, when they were sacrificing the Passover, his disciples say to him, Where do you wish us to go, that we should prepare in order that you may eat the Passover?

     14:13 And he sends two of his disciples and says to them, GoĎ into the city and youĎ will be encountering a man bearing a pitcher of water there. FollowĎ him. 14:14And wherever he enters, sayĎ to the householder, The Teacher says, Where is the guestroom, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? 14:15And he will be showing youĎ a big furnished upper-room, which is ready. PrepareĎit for us there.14:16 And his disciples went forth, and came into the city and found it just-as he had said to them, and they prepared the Passover. 14:17 And when* it became evening, he comes with the twelve.

     {Joh 13:1-20 Thur. Evening.}

     {Mar 14:18-21, 14:27-31 & Mat 26:21-25, 26:31-35 & Luk 22:21-23, 22:31-38 & Joh 13:21-38.}

     14:18 And while* they are reclining and eating, Jesus said, Assuredly I am saying to youĎ, One out of youĎ will be giving me up to the Jews, he who is eating with me.

     14:19 Now they began to be sorrowful and to say to him one by one, It is not I, is it? And another, It is not I, is it?

     14:20 But he answered and said to them, It is one out of the twelve, he who dips with me in the dish. 14:21The Son of Man indeed is going, just-as it has been written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is given up! It was {i.e. would be} good for him, if thatman was not ever born.

     {Mar 14:22-25 & Mat 26:26-29 & Luk 22:19-20, 1Co 11:23-26.}

     14:22 And while* they are eating, Jesus took bread and having given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them and said, TakeĎ, eatĎ; this is my body.14:23 And he took the cup and having given-thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank out of it. 14:24 And he said to them, This is my blood, the blood of the new covenant*, which is poured out concerning many.14:25 Assuredly I am saying to youĎ, I may never* drink anymore from the fruit of the vine, until that day whenever I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

     {Joh 14-17 Thur. Night, Fri. to the Jews.}

     {Mar 14:26, 14:32-42 & Mat 26:30, 26:36-46 & Luk 22:39-46 & Joh 18:1 Garden between Stream of Kidron and Mountain of Olives, Late Thur. night.}

. 14:26 And having sung a hymn, they went out to the Mountain of Olives.

     {See Mar 14:18-21 above.}

     14:27 And Jesus says to them, All of youĎ will be offended at me in this night, because it has been written, 'I will be striking the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered.'{Zec 13:7}14:28But after I arise, I will be preceding youĎ into Galilee.

     14:29 But Peter said to him, Even if all will be offended, but not I.

     14:30 And Jesus says to him, Assuredly I am saying to you, that today, even in this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will be denying me three-times.

     14:31 But Peter spoke exceptionally, If it should be essential for me to die together with you, I may never* deny you! Now likewise*, they also all were saying it.

     {See Mar 14:26 above.}

     14:32 And they come to a parcel of ground of which the name is Gethsemane, and he says to his disciples, SitĎ here until I should pray. 14:33 And he takes with him Peter and James and John, and began to be utterly amazed and disheartened. 14:34 And he says to them, My soul is very sorrowful until death, remainĎ here and watchĎ.

     14:35 And he went forward a little, and fell upon the earth and was praying in order that, if it was possible, the hour might pass away from him. 14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for you; carry this cup away from me, but not what I will, but what you will.

     14:37 And he comes and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter, Simon, do you sleep? Were you not strong-enough to watch one hour? 14:38WatchĎ and prayĎ, in order that youĎ may not enter into temptation. The spirit is indeed eager, but the flesh is weak.

     14:39 And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words.

     14:40 And having returned, he found them sleeping again, for* their eyes were heavy, and they did not know what they should answer him.

     14:41 And he comes the third-time and says to them, Furthermore, are youĎ sleeping and resting yourselves? It is enough. The hour has come. Behold, the Son of Man is given up into the hands of sinners. 14:42AriseĎ, we should be going. Behold, he who is giving me up has drawn near.

     {Mar 14:43-52 & Mat 26:47-56 & Luk 22:47-53 & Joh 18:2-11 Gethsemane, Fri. a few hours before dawn.}

     14:43 And immediately, as he is still speaking, Judas, being one of the twelve, comes up and with him a large crowd with swords and clubs from the high-priests, and the scribes and the elders. 14:44 Now he who is giving him up had given them a predefined gesture, saying, Whomever I kiss, that is he; take-holdĎ of him and securely leadĎ him away. 14:45 And having come to the place, he went immediately to him and says to him, Rabbi, Rabbi, and kissed him.14:46 Now they put hands upon him and took-hold of him.

     14:47 But a certain one of those standing beside him, pulled his sword, and struck the bondservant of the high-priest and took off his ear.

     14:48 And Jesus answered and said to them, Have youĎ come out, as against a robber with swords and clubs to take me?14:49I was with youĎ daily teaching in the temple and youĎ did not take-hold of me, but this is done in order that the Scriptures might be fulfilled.

     14:50 And they all left him and fled. 14:51 And one, a certain young-man followed with him, having been dressed in a linen cloth over his naked body, and the young-men took-hold of him;14:52 but he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.

     {Joh 18:12-14, 19-23 Fri. before dawn.}

     {Mar 14:53 & Mat 26:57 & Luk 22:54a & Joh 18:24 Palace of Caiaphas, before dawn.}

     14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high-priest, and all the high-priests and the elders and the scribes come together with him there.

     {Mar 14:54 & Mat 26:58 & Luk 22:54b-62 & Joh 18:15-18 Courtyard of High Priest's residence, Fri. around dawn.}

     14:54 And Peter followed him from afar, until he was inside, into the courtyard of the high-priest, and he was sitting together with the attendants and warming himself in the light of the fire.

     {Mar 14:55-65 & Mat 26:59-68 & Luk 22:63-65.}

     14:55 Now the high-priests and the whole council were seeking testimony against Jesus, *that*they might slay him, and they were not finding it. 14:56 For* many were falsely testifying against him, and yet their testimonies were not equal. 14:57 And some, having stood up, were falsely testifying against him, saying, 14:58 We heard him say, I will be tearing-down this temple, the onemade* with hands, and in three days, I will be building another not made* with hands. 14:59 And thus, neither was their testimony equal.

     14:60 And the high-priest stood up in the midst of them and asked Jesus, saying, Are you answering nothing? What are these witnesses testifying against you? 14:61 But he was silent and answered nothing. Again the high-priest asked him and said to him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Gracious*One?

     14:62 But Jesus said, I am, and youĎ will be seeing the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming with the clouds of heaven.

     14:63 But the high-priest, having ripped his tunic, says, Why do we still have need of witnesses? 14:64 YouĎ have heard the blasphemy. What does it appear to youĎ? Now they all condemned him to be liable for death. 14:65 And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to batter him, and to say to him, Prophesy! And the attendants were casting him around with slaps on the cheek.

     {Mar 14:66-72 & Mat 26:69-75 & Luk 22:55-62 & Joh 18:25-27.}

     14:66 And Peter is below in the courtyard, one of the maidservants of the high-priest comes; 14:67and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and says, You were also with Jesus, the Nazarene.

     14:68 But he denied it, saying, I neither know him, nor know what you are saying, and he went outside to the forecourt, and the rooster crowed.

     14:69 And the maidservant saw him and began again to say to those standing beside her, Thisone is from them. 14:70 But he again was denying it. And after a little while, those standing besidethem were again saying to Peter, You truly are from them; for you are a Galilean and your speech is similar.

     14:71 But he began to curse and swear, I do not know this man of whom youĎ speak. 14:72 And the rooster crowed the second-time. And Peter was reminded of the declaration that Jesus said to him, Before the rooster crows twice, you will be denying me three-times. And having put his thoughts on it, he was weeping.
