Bible: Luke 22:7-38
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
22:21 “But 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.
22:24 A dispute also started 37 among them over which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 38 22:25 So 39 Jesus 40 said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those in authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ 41 22:26 Not so with you; 42 instead the one who is greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader 43 like the one who serves. 44 22:27 For who is greater, the one who is seated at the table, 45 or the one who serves? Is it not 46 the one who is seated at the table? But I am among you as one 47 who serves.
22:28 “You are the ones who have remained 48 with me in my trials. 22:29 Thus 49 I grant 50 to you a kingdom, 51 just as my Father granted to me, 22:30 that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and you will sit 52 on thrones judging 53 the twelve tribes of Israel.
22:31 “Simon, 54 Simon, pay attention! 55 Satan has demanded to have you all, 56 to sift you like wheat, 57 22:32 but I have prayed for you, Simon, 58 that your faith may not fail. 59 When 60 you have turned back, 61 strengthen 62 your brothers.” 22:33 But Peter 63 said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death!” 64 22:34 Jesus replied, 65 “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow 66 today until you have denied 67 three times that you know me.”
22:35 Then 68 Jesus 69 said to them, “When I sent you out with no money bag, 70 or traveler’s bag, 71 or sandals, you didn’t lack 72 anything, did you?” They replied, 73 “Nothing.” 22:36 He said to them, “But now, the one who 74 has a money bag must take it, and likewise a traveler’s bag 75 too. And the one who has no sword must sell his cloak and buy one. 22:37 For I tell you that this scripture must be 76 fulfilled in me, ‘And he was counted with the transgressors.’ 77 For what is written about me is being fulfilled.” 78 22:38 So 79 they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” 80 Then he told them, “It is enough.” 81
