Now athe feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. 2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.
3 bThen entered cSatan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. 4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and dcaptains, how he might betray him unto them. 5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. 6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them ||in the absence of the multitude.
7 eThen came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. 8 And he sent eePeter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. 11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
14 And when the hour was come, fhe sat down, and the twelve ffapostles with him. 15 And he said unto them, ||With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, guntil it be fulfilled hin the kingdom of God. 17 And he took the cup, and igave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 18 For jI say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
19 kAnd he took bread, and igave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: lthis do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
