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

1And the festival of unleavened drew near, called the Pascha. 2And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

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

3And Satan came into Judas called Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. 4And having departed, he conversed with the chief priests and the generals, how he might deliver him to them. 5And they rejoiced, and agreed to give him silver. 6And he promised, and sought an opportunity to deliver him to them apart from the crowd.

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

7And the day of unleavened came, in which must be sacrificed the pascha. 8And he sent Peter and John, saying, Having gone, prepare ye for us the pascha, that we might eat. 9And they said to him, Where wilt thou that we should prepare? 10And he said to them, Behold, you having come to the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing an earthen vessel of water; follow ye him to the house where he goes in. 11And ye shall say to the master of the house, The Teacher says to thee, Where is the room where I should eat the pascha with my disciples? 12And he shall shew you a great upper room spread: there prepare ye. 13And having departed, they found as he said to them; and they prepared the pascha.

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

14And when it was the hour, he reclined, and the twelve sent with him. 15And he said to them, With eager desire have I desired to eat this pascha with you before I suffer: 16For I say to you, no more should I eat of it, till when it should be completed in the kingdom of God. 17Having taken the cup, and returned thanks, he said, Take this, and divide among yourselves: 18For I say to you, that I drink not of the fruit of the vine, till when the kingdom of God comes. 19Having taken the bread, and returned thanks, he brake, and gave them, saying, This is my body given for you: this do ye for my remembrance. 20Likewise also the cup after supping, saying, This the cup, the new covenant in my blood, poured out for you: 21But, behold, the hand of him delivering me up with me at the table. 22And truly the Son of man goes according to that determined: but woe to that man by whom he is delivered up! 23And they began to seek together among themselves, which of them it should be that was about to do this thing.

Who Is the Greatest?

24And a love of strife was in them, which of them thinks to be the greater. 25And he said to them, The kings of the nations rule over them; and they exercising power over them are called benefactors. 26And ye not so: but let the greater with you be as the younger; and he leading, as he serving. 27For which the greater, he reclining, or he serving? is not he reclining and I am in the midst of you as he serving.

28And ye are they having remained with me in my temptations. 29And I set to you, as my Father set to me, a kingdom; 30That ye might eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and might sit upon 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, behold, Satan has demanded you, to sift as wheat: 32And I have supplicated for thee that thy faith fail not: and thou, when having turned back, confirm thy brethren. 33And he said to him, Lord, with thee am I ready to go, and to prison, and to death. 34And he said, I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not utter a sound this day, before thou shalt thrice deny knowing me.

35And he said to them, When I sent you without purse, and wallet, and shoes, did ye want any thing? And they said, Nothing, 36Then said he to them, But now, he having a purse, let him take up, and likewise a wallet: and he not having, let him sell his garment, and buy a sword. 37For I say to you, that this written must yet be finished in me, that, Also was he reckoned with the lawless: for also the things concerning me have an end. 38And they said, Lord, behold, two swords here. And he said to them, It is enough.

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

39And having come out, he went, according to custom, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples followed him. 40And being at the place, he said to them, Pray ye not to enter into temptation. 41And he was removed from them about a stone's cast, and having placed the knees, he prayed, 42Saying, Father, If thou art willing, turn aside this cup from me: but not my will, but thine, be done. 43And a messenger was seen to him from heaven, strengthening him. 44And being in a violent struggle, he prayed more intently: and his sweat was as clots of blood coming down upon the earth. 45And having risen from prayer, having come to his disciples, he found them sleeping from grief;

46And he said to them, Why sleep ye? having risen, pray that ye might not enter into temptation.

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

47And he yet speaking, Behold a crowd, and he called Judas, one of the twelve, came before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss him. 48And Jesus said to him, Judas, deliverest thou up the Son of man with a kiss? 49And they about him, having seen that, going to be, said to him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword. 50And a certain one of them struck a servant of the chief priest, and took away his right ear. 51And Jesus having answered said, Allow ye even to this. And having touched his ear, he healed him. 52And Jesus said to the chief priests, and generals of the temple, and the elders, having come to him, Have ye come out, as upon a robber, with sword and sticks? 53I being with you daily in the temple, ye stretched not forth the 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)

54And having taken, they brought him into the house of the chief priest. And Peter followed him far off. 55And having kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and they having sat down together, Peter sat down in the midst of them. 56And a certain young girl having seen him sitting by the light, and looked intently upon him, said, And this was with him. 57And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58And after a little another having seen him, said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59And about the space of one hour a certain other assured himself, saying, of a truth this also was with him: for he is a Galilean. 60And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, he yet speaking, the cock uttered a sound. 61And the Lord having turned, looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, That before the cock utters a sound, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62And Peter having come forth without wept bitterly.

The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(Isaiah 50:4–11; Matthew 27:27–31; Mark 15:16–20; John 19:1–15)

63And the men holding Jesus mocked him, stripping. 64And having covered him, they struck his face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy who it is having struck thee. 65And many other things, blaspheming, they spake against him.

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

66And when it was day, the council of elders of the people was gathered together, and the chief priests and scribes, and they brought him to their council, 67Saying, Art thou Christ? tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye would not believe: 68And if I ask you, ye would not answer me, or loose me. 69From now shall the Son of man be sitting from the right hand of the power of God. 70And they all said, Art thou therefore the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am. 71And they said, Why have we yet need of testimony? for we ourselves have heard from his month.
