Matthew 26:21–35

21 Now as they were eating, He said, Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will pbetray Me.”

22 And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and each of them began to say to Him, “Lord, is it I?”

23 He answered and said, qHe who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me. 24 The Son of Man indeed goes just ras it is written of Him, but swoe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! tIt would have been good for that man if he had not been born.”

25 Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?”

He said to him, You have said it.”

The Lord’s Supper is Instituted

Mark 14:22–25; Luke 22:19, 20; 1 Cor. 11:23–26

26 uAnd as they were eating, vJesus took bread, 3blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, Take, eat; wthis is My body.”

27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, xDrink from it, all of you. 28 For ythis is My blood zof the 4new covenant, which is shed afor many for the 5remission of sins. 29 But bI say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on cuntil that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

Peter’s Denial is Predicted

Mark 14:26–31; Luke 22:34, 39; John 13:37, 38

30 dAnd when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

31 Then Jesus said to them, eAll of you will fbe 6made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written:

gI will strike the Shepherd,

And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’

32 But after I have been raised, hI will go before you to Galilee.”

33 Peter answered and said to Him, “Even if all are 7made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.”

34 Jesus said to him, iAssuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.”

35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!”

And so said all the disciples.
