Mark 14:12–21

The Last Passover

12 aOn the first day of bUnleavened Bread, when 1the Passover lamb was being csacrificed, His disciples * said to Him, “Where do You want us to go and prepare for You to eat the Passover?”

13 And He * sent two of His disciples and * said to them, Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him;

14 and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house,The Teacher says, “Where is My aguest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?” ’

15 And he himself will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; prepare for us there.”

16 The disciples went out and came to the city, and found it just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.

17 aWhen it was evening He * came with the twelve.

18 As they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, Truly I say to you that one of you will 1betray Me2one who is eating with Me.”

19 They began to be grieved and to say to Him one by one, “Surely not I?”

20 And He said to them, It is one of the twelve, 1one who dips with Me in the bowl.

21 For the Son of Man is to go just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man 1by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good 2for that man if he had not been born.”
