Jesus Eats The Last Supper With

Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples, went to the high priests

with the intention of betraying Jesus. And when they heard, they

rejoiced, promising to give him money; and he began to look for an

opportunity to betray him.

On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when the Jews kill

the lambs that are sacrificed at the Passover Feast, Jesus' disciples

said to him, "Where do you wish us to m
ke ready for your passover


So Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, "Go into the city,

where you will meet a man carrying a jar of water. Follow him and say

to the owner of whatever house he enters, 'The Master says, Where is my

room in which I may eat the passover meal with my disciples?' He will

show you a large upper room already furnished. There make ready for us."

So the disciples went into the city and found things as he had said they

would; and they prepared for the Passover.

When it was evening Jesus came with his twelve disciples; and while they

were eating at the table, he said, "I know surely that one of you now

eating with me will betray me." In deep sorrow the disciples said to

him, one after the other, "Surely it is not I?" He said to them, "It is

one of the twelve, one who is dipping his fingers into the dish with me.

The Son of Man will depart as it has been foretold of him, but woe to

that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that

man if he had never been born!"

Then Jesus took the bread and, when he had given thanks to God, he broke

it and said, "This is my body which is broken for you; do this in

remembrance of me."

In the same way, after he had eaten, Jesus took the cup, and when he had

given thanks to God, he gave it to his disciples and they drank of it.

Then he said, "This is the new covenant made by my blood which is shed

for many. As often as you drink this cup, do it in remembrance of me."

Then after singing a hymn they went out to the Mount of Olives.

There Jesus said to them, "You will all desert me, for it is written in

the scriptures: 'I will smite the shepherd and the sheep will be

scattered.' But after I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee."

Peter said to him, "Though all others should desert you, I will not."

Jesus said to him, "Indeed I tell you, this very night before the cock

crows you will deny three times that you know me." But Peter said more

emphatically, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never deny you."

And all of them said the same.
