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

1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the passover. 2And the chief priests and scribes were consulting how they might put Him to death; for they were afraid of the people.

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

3Then entred Satan into Judas who was surnamed Iscariot, one of the twelve. 4And he went and conferred with the chief priests and the captains, how he might betray Him unto them. 5And they were glad and agreed to give him money: 6and he accepted the terms, and sought an opportunity to betray Him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

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

7The day of unleavened bread being come, on which the paschal-lamb was to be slain, 8Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare the passover for us, that we may eat of it. 9And they said unto Him, Where wouldst thou have us prepare it? 10And He said unto them, Behold, when ye are come into the city, there shall meet you a man, carrying a pitcher of water, follow him into the house where he entreth: 11and say to the master of the house, Our Master inquireth by us, Where is the room, in which I may eat the passover with my disciples? 12And he will shew you a large upper room set out; there make it ready. 13And they went and found as He had told them; and prepared 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, I have earnestly desired to eat of this passover with you before I suffer: 16for I say unto you, that I will not eat of it any more, till it be accomplished in the kingdom of God. 17And taking the cup He gave thanks and said, Take this and distribute it among yourselves. 18For I tell you, that I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God shall come. 19And He took bread, and gave thanks and brake it, and gave it to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me: 20as also the cup after supper, saying, This cup represents the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you. 21And yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is at table with me: 22and the Son of man is going indeed as was determined; but wo to that man by whom He is betrayed. 23And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do it.

Who Is the Greatest?

24And there was also a dispute among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest: 25but He said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those in authority are called benefactors. 26But ye shall not do so: but let the greatest among you be as the younger; and he that presides as he that serveth. 27For which is greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at table? but I am among you as one that serveth.

28Ye have continued with me in my temptations; 29and I appoint you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me: 30that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and 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 hath desired to have you my disciples, that he may sift you as wheat: 32but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith may not fail; and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. 33And he said unto Him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee both to prison and to death. 34But He replied, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before thou hast thrice denied that thou knowest me.

35And He said unto them, When I sent you forth without purse, or bag, or shoes, did ye want any thing? and they said, Nothing. 36Then said He unto them, But now let him, that hath a purse, take it, and his bag likewise; and let him that has no sword, sell his garment and buy one: 37for I tell you, that this which is written must yet be accomplished in me, "And He was numbered with transgressors," for the things foretold concerning me are near at an end. 38And they said, Lord, behold here are two swords. And He said unto them, It is enough.

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

39And He came out and went, as He used to do, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed Him. 40And when He was at the place, He said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41And when He was withdrawn from them about a stone's-cast, He kneeled down and prayed saying, 42Father, if thou art willing take away this cup from me---nevertheless, not my will but thine be done. 43And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven strengthening Him. 44And being in agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was like clotted blood falling down upon the ground. 45And when He rose up from prayer, He came to his disciples and found them sleeping for sorrow;

46and He said to them, Why do ye sleep? rise 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 that was called Judas, one of the twelve apostles, came before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss Him: 48and Jesus said to him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49But when they that were about Him saw what would follow, they said to Him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50And one of them smote the high priest's servant and cut off his right ear: 51but Jesus said, Suffer ye thus far; and He touched his ear and healed him. 52Then said Jesus to the chief priests, and officers of the temple, and elders, that were come to Him, Are ye come out as against a robber with swords and clubs? 53When I was day after day with you in the temple, ye did not stretch out your hands against 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 they took Him and led Him away, and brought Him to the high priest's. And Peter followed at a distance. 55And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and sat down together, Peter also sat down among them: 56and a servant-maid seeing him as he sat by the fire, and looking hard at him, said, This fellow was also with Him: 57But he denied Him, saying, Woman, I do not know Him. 58And after a little while another person seeing him said, And thou art one of them: but Peter said, Man, I am not. 59And about an hour after, another confidently affirmed saying, In truth this fellow also was with Him; for he is a Galilean too: but Peter answered, 60Man, I know not what thou sayst. And immediately, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew. 61And the Lord turned and looked upon Peter; and Peter called to mind the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, Before the cock crow thou wilt deny me thrice. 62And Peter went out and wept bitterly.

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

63And the men that laid hold on Jesus, insulted and abused Him; 64and when they had blind-folded Him, they struck Him on the face, and asked Him, saying, Prophesy who it was that smote thee. 65And many other things spake they against Him, blaspheming Him.

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

66And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people, and chief-priests, and scribes, assembled together, and ordered Him up into their council: 67and said to Him, Art thou the Messiah? tell us. And He said unto them, If I should tell you, ye would not believe: 68and if I should put any question to you, ye would not answer me, nor discharge me. 69But hereafter shall the Son of man be seated on the right hand of the power of God. 70And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? 71And He said unto them, I am. And they said, What need have we of any farther evidence? when we ourselves have it from his own mouth?
