Bible: Mark 14:12-26

The Passover

14:12 Now 1  on the first day of the feast of 2  Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, 3  Jesus 4  disciples said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover? 5  14:13 He sent two of his disciples and told them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar 6  of water will meet you. Follow him. 14:14 Wherever he enters, tell the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?”’ 14:15 He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” 14:16 So 7  the disciples left, went 8  into the city, and found things just as he had told them, 9  and they prepared the Passover.

14:17 Then, 10  when it was evening, he came to the house 11  with the twelve. 14:18 While they were at the table 12  eating, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, 13  one of you eating with me will betray me.” 14  14:19 They were distressed, and one by one said to him, “Surely not I? 14:20 He said to them, “It is one of the twelve, one who dips his hand 15  with me into the bowl. 16  14:21 For the Son of Man will go as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for him if he had never been born.”

The Lord’s Supper

14:22 While they were eating, he took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it, gave it to them, and said, “Take it. This is my body.” 14:23 And after taking the cup and giving thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 14:24 He said to them, “This is my blood, the blood 17  of the covenant, 18  that is poured out for many. 14:25 I tell you the truth, 19  I will no longer drink of the fruit 20  of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” 14:26 After singing a hymn, 21  they went out to the Mount of Olives.
