Bible: Luke 22:7-23

The Passover

22:7 Then the day for the feast 1  of Unleavened Bread came, on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 2  22:8 Jesus 3  sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover 4  for us to eat.” 5  22:9 They 6  said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare 7  it? 22:10 He said to them, “Listen, 8  when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water 9  will meet you. 10  Follow him into the house that he enters, 22:11 and tell the owner of the house, 11 The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?”’ 22:12 Then he will show you a large furnished room upstairs. Make preparations there.” 22:13 So 12  they went and found things 13  just as he had told them, 14  and they prepared the Passover.

The Lord’s Supper

22:14 Now 15  when the hour came, Jesus 16  took his place at the table 17  and the apostles joined 18  him. 22:15 And he said to them, “I have earnestly desired 19  to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 22:16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again 20  until it is fulfilled 21  in the kingdom of God.” 22  22:17 Then 23  he took a cup, 24  and after giving thanks he said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves. 22:18 For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit 25  of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 26  22:19 Then 27  he took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body 28  which is given for you. 29  Do this in remembrance of me.” 22:20 And in the same way he took 30  the cup after they had eaten, 31  saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant 32  in my blood.

A Final Discourse

22:21But look, the hand of the one who betrays 33  me is with me on the table. 34  22:22 For the Son of Man is to go just as it has been determined, 35  but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed! 22:23 So 36  they began to question one another as to which of them it could possibly be who would do this.
