14 Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariott—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver.u 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed timex is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”y
23 Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me.z 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him.a But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
Jesus answered, “You have said so.”
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke itd and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup,e and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of theb covenant,f which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.g 29 I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with youh in my Father’s kingdom.”
30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.i
