3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembledm in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas,n 4 and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him.o 5 “But not during the festival,” they said, “or there may be a riotp among the people.”
6 While Jesus was in Bethanyq in the home of Simon the Leper, 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,a r but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.s 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
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.”
