Now the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the Passover, drew near.

The chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put him to death, for they feared the people.

Satan entered into Judas, who was surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered with the twelve.

He went away, and talked with the chief priests and captains about how he might deliver him to them.

They were glad, and agreed to give him money.

He consented, and sought an opportunity to deliver him to them in the absence of the multitude.

The day of unleavened bread came, on which the Passover must be sacrificed.

He sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat."

They said to him, "Where do you want us to prepare?"

He said to them, "Behold, when you have entered into the city, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him into the house which he enters.

Tell the master of the house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?"'

He will show you a large, furnished upper room. Make preparations there."

They went, found things as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

When the hour had come, he sat down with the twelve apostles.

He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer,

for I tell you, I will no longer by any means eat of it until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God."

He received a cup, and when he had given thanks, he said, "Take this, and share it among yourselves,

for I tell you, I will not drink at all again from the fruit of the vine, until the Kingdom of God comes."

He took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and gave to them, saying, "This is my body which is given for you. Do this in memory of me."

Likewise, he took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
