The Plot to Kill Jesus
(Matthew 26:1–5; Mark 14:1–2; John 11:45–57)

1AND the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the Passover, was at hand. 2And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might destroy him; for they were afraid of the people.

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
(Matthew 26:14–16; Mark 14:10–11)

3Then entered Satan into Judas called Iscariot, though he was of the number of the twelve. 4And he went and conversed with the chief priests and the captains, by what means he could betray him unto them. 5And they were glad, and agreed with him to give him a sum of money. 6And he gave them his promise, and sought the favourable opportunity to betray him to them, in the absence of the multitude.

Preparing the Passover
(Matthew 26:17–19; Mark 14:12–16)

7Then came the day of unleavened bread, on which the passover must be killed. 8And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go, prepare for us the passover, that we may eat it. 9And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare it? 10And he said unto them, Lo! as you are at the entrance of the city, there will a man meet you, carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house whither he is going. 11And say to the master of that family, The teacher saith to thee, Where is the dining-room, in which I can eat the passover with my disciples? 12And he will shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13And they going away, found it just as he had told them: and they made ready the passover.

The Last Supper
(Matthew 26:20–30; Mark 14:17–26; 1 Corinthians 11:17–34)

14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15And he said unto them, With earnest desire have I longed to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16for I tell you, that I will no more ever eat of it, until it shall be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17And taking the cup, after having given thanks, he said, Take this, and divide among yourselves: 18for I say unto you, that I shall no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God come. 19And taking a loaf, he gave thanks, and brake, and gave it to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: do this in remembrance of me. 20And the cup in like manner, after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. 21But lo! the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me at the table. 22And the Son of man indeed goeth, as is decreed: but wo to that man by whom he is betrayed! 23And they began to question among themselves, who it could possibly be of them who should do this thing.

Who Is the Greatest?

24Now it came to pass, that there was also a contention among them, even which of them should be accounted to be the greatest. 25And he said to them, The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they who exercise authority over them are called benefactors. 26But ye shall not act thus: but the superior among you, let him be as the junior; and he that presideth, as he that serveth. 27For which is the greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that waits? is not he that sitteth at table? but I am in the midst of you as he that serveth.

28Ye are they who have continued with me during my trials. 29And I appoint you, as my Father hath appointed me, a kingdom; 30that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and be seated on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
(Matthew 26:31–35; Mark 14:27–31; John 13:36–38)

31And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, lo! Satan hath earnestly sought you, that he might sift you as wheat: 32but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith may not fail: and when thou art returned, stablish thy brethren. 33Then he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, to prison, and to death! 34And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before thou shalt thrice deny having known me.

35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, or scrip, or sandals, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36Then said he to them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him also take a scrip: and he that hath none, let him sell his cloak, and buy a sword. 37For I tell you, that what hath already been written must be fulfilled in me, namely, ?He was numbered with the transgressors:? for the things also concerning me draw to their period. 38Then they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords, and he said to them, It is enough.

Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives
(Matthew 26:36–46; Mark 14:32–42)

39And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40And when he came to the spot, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41And he withdrew from them about a stone?s cast, and kneeling down, he prayed, 42saying, Father, if thou wilt, remove this cup from me! nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done. 43And an angel from heaven appeared to him, strengthening him. 44And being in an agony, he prayed with greater intenseness: and his sweat was as clots of blood falling on the ground. 45And when he rose up from prayer, on coming to his disciples, he found them sleeping from sorrow.

46And he said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise up, and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.

The Betrayal of Jesus
(Matthew 26:47–56; Mark 14:43–52; John 18:1–14)

47And while he was yet speaking, behold a multitude, and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and approached Jesus to kiss him. 48Then said Jesus unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49Then when they who were about him saw what was ready to happen, they said unto him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword? 50And one of them struck at a servant of the high-priest, and cut off his right ear. 51Then Jesus, addressing them, said, Permit me thus far: and touching his ear, he healed him. 52Then said Jesus to the chief priests and captains of the temple, and to the elders who were come forth against him, Are ye come out as against a robber, with swords and staves? 53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched out no hands upon me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Peter Denies Jesus
(Matthew 26:69–75; Mark 14:66–72; John 18:15–18)

54Then seizing upon him, they led him away, and brought him into the palace of the high-priest. But Peter followed at a distance. 55And as they had lighted a fire in the middle of the hall, and had seated themselves in a company, Peter sat down in the midst of them. 56But a certain maid-servant who sat at the fire, eyeing him, and looking at him stedfastly, said, This man was also with him. 57But he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58And after a little while another seeing him, said, Surely thou art one of them. Then said Peter, Man, I am not. 59And at about an hour?s distance, another person strongly asserted, saying, Of a certainty this fellow was also with him: for he too is a Galilean. 60And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And instantly, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew. 61And the Lord, turning round, looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, That before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62And Peter going without, wept bitterly.

The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(Matthew 27:27–31; Mark 15:16–20; John 19:1–15)

63And the men who held Jesus insulted him, beating him with rods; 64and blindfolding him, smote him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is he that struck thee? 65And many other things, blaspheming, spake they against him.

Jesus before the Sanhedrin
(Matthew 26:57–68; Mark 14:53–65; John 18:19–24)

66And when the day broke, the elders of the people and the chief priests and scribes assembled, and brought him into their sanhedrim, saying, 67If thou art the Messiah, tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68and if I shall ask you any question, ye will neither answer me, nor let me go free. 69Hereafter shall the Son of man sit at the right hand of the power of God. 70Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Yourselves say that I am. 71Then they said, What further need have we of witness? for we have heard it from his own mouth.
