Luke 22
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1NOW the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the passover, was at hand. 2And the high priests and the scribes sought how to kill him; but they were afraid of the people.

3But Satan had taken possession of Judas who is called of Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. 4So he went away, and spoke with the high priests and the scribes and officers of the temple, about delivering him to them. 5And they were glad and promised to give him money. 6And he agreed with them, and sought an opportunity to deliver him to them in the absence of the people.

7Then the day of unleavened bread came, on which it was the custom to kill the passover lamb. 8So Jesus sent Peter and John, and said to them, Go and prepare the passover for us to eat. 9They said to him, Where do you wish us to prepare? 10He said to them, Behold, when you enter the city, you will meet a man carrying a skin full of water; follow him. And wherever he enters, 11Say to the master of the house, Our Teacher says, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the passover with my disciples? 12And behold, he will show you an upper room, large and furnished; there make ready. 13And they went and found just as he had said to them; and they prepared the passover.

14And when the time came, Jesus came and sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. 15And he said to them, I have desired with desire to eat this passover with you before I suffer; 16For I say to you, that henceforth, I will not eat it, until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17And he took the cup and gave thanks and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves. 18For I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes. 19And he took bread and gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them and said, This is my body, which is given for your sake; this do in remembrance of me. 20And likewise also the cup, after they had eaten the supper, he said, This is the cup of the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you. 21But behold, the hand of him who is to betray me is on the table. 22And the Son of man will go, just as he has been destined; but woe to the man by whose hand he will be betrayed! 23And they began to enquire among themselves, which one of them was to do this act.

24There was also a dispute among them, as to who is the greatest among them. 25Jesus said to them, The kings of the Gentiles are also their owners; and those who rule over them are called benefactors. 26But not so with you; but he who is great among you, let him be the least, and he who is a leader be like a minister. 27For who is greater, he who sits down or he who serves? Is it not he who sits down? but I am among you as one who serves.

28You are those who have remained with me, throughout my trials. 29And I promise you, just as my Father has promised me, a kingdom, 30That you may eat and drink at the table in my kingdom; and you will sit on chairs, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel.

31And Jesus said to Simon, Simon, behold Satan wants to sift all of you as wheat; 32But I have made supplication for you that your faith may not weaken; and even you in time will repent, and strengthen your brethren. 33Simon said to him, My Lord, I am ready with you, even for the prison and for death. 34Jesus said to him, I say to you, Simon, the cock will not crow today, until you have denied three times that you know me.

35And he said to them, When I sent you out without purses, and without bags, and shoes, did you lack anything? They said to him, Not a thing. 36He said to them, From now on he who has purses, let him take them, and the bag likewise; and he who has no sword, let him sell his robe and buy for himself a sword. 37For I say to you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in me, He will be numbered among the wicked; for all the things concerning me will be fulfilled. 38And they said to him, Our Lord, behold here are two swords. He said to them, That is enough.

39And he went out and went away, as it was his custom, to the Mount of the Home of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40And when he arrived at a place, he said to them, Pray that you may not enter into temptation. 41And he separated from them, about the distance of a stone’s throw, and he kneeled down, and prayed, 42Saying, O Father, if you will, let this cup pass from me; but not as I will, but your will be done. 43And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, to strengthen him. 44And he was in fear, and prayed earnestly; and his sweat became like drops of blood; and he fell down upon the ground. 45Then he rose up from his prayer, and came to his disciples, and found them sleeping because of distress. 46And he said to them, Why do you sleep? rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation.

47While he was still speaking, behold, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the twelve, coming before them; and he drew near to Jesus and kissed him. For this was the sign he had given them, He whom I kiss, it is he. 48Jesus said to him, Judas, do you betray the Son of man with a kiss? 49When those who were with him saw what happened, they said to him, Our Lord, shall we smite them with swords? 50And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51But Jesus answered and said, It is enough for the present. And he touched the ear of him who was wounded, and healed it. 52And Jesus said to the high priests and the elders and the officers of the temple, who had come against him, Have you come out against me to arrest me with swords and staves, as if you were against a bandit? 53I was with you every day in the temple, and you did not even point your hands at me; but this is your turn, and the power of darkness.

54And they arrested him, and brought him to the house of the high priest. And Simon followed him afar off. 55And they kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard, and they sat around it; and Simon also sat among them. 56And a young woman saw him sitting by the fire, and she looked at him and said, This man also was with him. 57But he denied, and said, Woman, I do not know him. 58And after a little while, another saw him, and said to him, You also are one of them. But Peter said, I am not. 59And after an hour, another one argued and said, Truly, this man also was with him; for he is also a Galilean. 60Peter said, Man, I do not know what you are saying. And immediately while he was still speaking, the cock crew. 61And Jesus turned and looked at Peter. And Simon remembered the word of our Lord, that he said to him, Before the cock crows you will deny me three times. 62And Simon went outside and wept bitterly.

63And the men who held Jesus mocked him, 64And they covered his head, and smote him on his face, saying, Prophesy, who has struck you. 65And many other things they blasphemed and said against him.

66As soon as it was daybreak, the elders and the high priests and the scribes gathered together, and brought him up to their council chamber. 67And they said to him, If you are the Christ, tell us. He said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe me. 68And if I ask you, you will not answer me nor release me. 69From henceforth the Son of man will sit at the right hand of the power of God. 70And they all said, Are you then the Son of God? Jesus said to them, You say that I am. 71And they said, Why then do we need witnesses? for we have heard it from his own mouth.
