Luke 22

1 Now the feast of unleavened bread was drawing near, which is called* the Passover. 2 And the high, priests and the scribes were seeking how they might assassinate him; for* they were fearing the people.

{Mk 14: 10-11 & Mt 26: 14-16 & Lk 22: 3-6 & Jn 12: 2-8. }

3 Now the Adversary entered into Judas who is surnamed Iscariot, being from the number of the twelve. 4 And he went away and spoke together with the high, priests and magistrates, how he might give him to them. 5 And they rejoiced and covenanted to give him silver. 6 And he professed agreement, and was seeking an opportunity to give him up to them without the crowd.

{Mk 14: 12-17 & Mt 26: 17-20 & Lk 22: 7-18, 22: 24-30 Bethany to Jerusalem Thurs. Evening. }

7 Now the day of unleavened bread came, in which the Passover ought to be sacrificed. 8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, When* you have traveled on, prepare the Passover for us, in order that we may eat.

9 Now they said to him, Where do you will that we shall prepare it?

10 But he said to them Behold, when* you* have entered into the city, a man bearing a pitcher of water will be meeting you* there; follow him into the house where he travels. 11 And you* will say to the householder of the house, The Teacher says to you, Where is the guestroom, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? 12 And he will show you* a big furnished upper, room. Prepare it there. 13 Now they went and found just, as he had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.

14 And when the hour came*, he leaned, back, and the twelve apostles together with him. 15 And he said to them, I have desired with a great desire, to eat this Passover with you* before I suffer; 16 for* I say to you*, I may never* eat from it anymore, until it should be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17 And he accepted a cup, and having given, thanks, he said, Take this and divide it with yourselves. 18 For* I say to you*, I may never* drink from the fruit of the vine, until which time the kingdom of God should come.

{Mk 14: 22-25 & Mt 26: 26-29 & Lk 22: 19-20, 1Cor: 11: 23-26. }

19 And he took bread and having given, thanks, he broke it and gave to them, saying, This is my body which is given on your, your* behalf. Practice this in my remembrance. 20 And likewise*, he took the cup after the supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant* in my blood, which is poured out on your, your* behalf.

{Mk 14: 18-21, 14: 27-31 & Mt 26: 21-25, 26: 31-35 & Lk 22: 21-23, 22: 31-38 & Jn 13: 21-38. }

21 However behold, the hand of the one who is giving me up is with me at the table. 22 And the Son of Man indeed is traveling on, according to what has been determined; however, woe to that man through whom he is given up! 23 And they began to debate together with themselves, who then it might be out of them who is about to do this thing.

{See Lk 22: 7-18 above. }

24 Now there happened to be also contention among them, which of them is thought to be the greater. 25 But he said to them, The kings of the Gentiles have lordship over them, and those who have authority over them are called benefactors. 26 But not so with you*, but the greater one among you*, let him become like the younger, and the leader, as he who is serving. 27 For* what is greater one, he who reclines at the meal, or he who is serving? Is it not he who reclines? But I am in your, your* midst like he who serves. 28 But you* are those who have remained with me in my temptations {Or: tests} ; 29 and I also covenant to you*, just, as my father covenanted to me a kingdom, 30 in order that you* may eat and may drink upon my table in my kingdom, and you* will be sitting upon thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

{See Lk 22: 31-38 above. }

31 Now the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, the Adversary asked for you*, to sift you * like wheat. 32 But I besought concerning you, in order that your, your* faith may not fail, and someday having turned back again, establish your, your* brethren.

33 But he said to him, Lord, I am ready to travel with you both to prison and to death.

34 But he said, I tell you Peter, The rooster may never* crow today, before you will be denying to know me three, times.

35 And he said to them, When I sent you* forth without money, bag and knapsack and shoes, you* did not lack anything, did you*?

And they said, Nothing.

36 Therefore 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, he will be selling his garment and will be buying one. 37 For* I say to you*, that it is essential for this to still be completed in me, which has been written, ' And he was counted with the lawless'; for* the things concerning me must have an end. {Isa 53: 12}

38 But they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords.

Now he said to them, It is sufficient.

{Mk 14: 26, 14: 32-42 & Mt 26: 30, 26: 36-46 & Lk 22: 39-46 & Jn 18: 1 Garden between Stream of Kidron and Mountain of Olives, Late Thurs. night. }

39 And he, coming out and according to his custom, traveled to the Mountain of Olives, and his disciples also followed him. 40 Now when* he came* on the place, he said to them, Pray that you* do not enter into temptation. 41 And he pulled away from them approximately a stone' s throw, and having placed himself on his knees, he was praying, 42 saying, Father, if you are willing to carry this cup away from me, however not my will, but let yours happen. 43 Now a messenger from heaven appeared to him, strengthening him. 44 And having become in agony, he was praying more intensely, and his sweat became like thick drops of blood going down upon the soil. 45 And having stood up from his prayer, he came to the disciples and found them, falling, asleep from sorrow, 46 and said to them, Why are you* sleeping? Rise* up and pray, in order that you* may not enter into temptation.

{Mk 14: 43-52 & Mt 26: 47-56 & Lk 22: 47-53 & Jn 18: 2-11 Gethsemane, Friday a few hours before dawn. }

47 While* he is still speaking, behold, a crowd and he who was called* Judas, one of the twelve, was going before them, and he drew near to Jesus to kiss him. 48 But Jesus said to him, Judas, are you giving up the Son of Man with a kiss? 49 Now when* those who were around him, saw what will be coming, they said to him, Lord, shall we strike with* the sword? 50 And a certain one out of them struck the bondservant of the high, priest and took off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered and said, Permit this. And he touched his ear and healed him.

52 Now Jesus said to the high, priests and magistrates of the temple and elders, who had come against him, Have you* come out with swords and clubs, like against a robber? 53 When* I was with you* daily in the temple, you* did not stretch out your, your* hands against me, but this is your, your* hour and the authority of darkness .

{Mk 14: 53 & Mt 26: 57 & Lk 22: 54a & Jn 18: 24 Palace of Caiaphas, before dawn. }

54 But having taken him, they led him away and then led him into the high, priest' s house.

{Mk 14: 54 & Mt 26: 58 & Lk 22: 54b-62 & Jn 18: 15-18 Courtyard of High Priest' s residence, Friday around dawn. }

But Peter was following from afar.

{Mk 14: 66-72 & Mt 26: 69-75 & Lk 22: 55-62 & Jn 18: 25-27. }

55 Now having lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard and all having sat down together, Peter was sitting in the midst of them. 56 But a certain maidservant when* she saw him sitting in the light of the fire, and having stared at him, said, This one was also together with him.

57 But he denied him, saying, Woman, I do not know him. 58 And after a little bit, a different one saw him, and was saying, You also are one out of them.

But Peter said, Man, I am not.

59 And after approximately a one hour interval, then a certain other was stoutly affirming, saying, In truth this one was also with him; for* he is a Galilean.

60 But Peter said, Man, I do not know what you say. And instantly, while* he is still speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter was reminded of the word of the Lord, how that he said to him, Before the rooster crow, you will be denying me three, times. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

{Mk 14: 55-65 & Mt 26: 59-68 & Lk 22: 63-65. } 63 And the men who held Jesus were mocking him, whipping him. 64 And having covered him, they were beating his face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy. Who is it who struck you? 65 And they were saying many other things to him, blaspheming.

{Mk 15: 1 & Mt 27: 1-2 Lk 22: 66-23: 1 Jn 18: 28a Jerusalem early Friday morning. }

66 And as it became day, the eldership of the people were gathered together, both high, priests and scribes, and they led him away into their council, saying, 67 If you are the Christ, tell us.

But he said to them, If I tell you*, you* may never* believe; 68 and if I also ask, you* may never* answer or release me. 69 From hereafter, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.

70 Now they all said, Therefore are you the Son of God?

But he said to them, You* are saying that I am.

71 Now they said, Why do we still have need of testimony? For* we ourselves have heard from his own mouth.
