32 ...Jesus... took the twelve aside ...and began to tell them the
things that would happen to Him:
33 "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will
be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will
condemn Him to death and deliver Him to the Gentiles;
34 "and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and
kill Him. And the third day He will rise again."
43 ... He said to His disciples,
44 "Let these words sink down into your ears, for the Son of Man
is about to be betrayed into the hands of men."
45 But they did not understand this saying, and it was hidden
from them so that they did not perceive it; and they were afraid
to ask Him about this saying.
52 ... as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans,
to prepare for Him.
53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for
the journey to Jerusalem.
54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said,
"Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven
and consume them, just as Elijah did?"
55 But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know
what manner of spirit you are of.
56 "For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but
to save them."
1 After two days it was the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened
Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might
take Him by trickery and put Him to death.
2 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar
of the people."
3 And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He
sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very
costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it
on His head.
4 But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and
said, "Why was this fragrant oil wasted?
5 "For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii
and given to the poor." And they criticized her sharply.
6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She
has done a good work for Me.
7 "For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish
you may do them good; but Me you do not have always.
8 "She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint
My body for burial.
9 "Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in
the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as
a memorial to her."
JOHN 14:1-6, 15-31
1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe
also in Me.
2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again
and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4 "And where I go you know, and the way you know."
5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going,
and how can we know the way?"
6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No
one comes to the Father except through Me.
15 "If you love Me, keep My commandments.
16 "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper,
that He may abide with you forever--
17 "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because
it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells
with you and will be in you.
18 "I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
19 "A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but
you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.
20 "At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you
in Me, and I in you.
21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves
Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will
love him and manifest Myself to him."
22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord, how is it that You
will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?"
23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will
keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to
him and make Our home with him.
24 "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word
which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
25 "These things I have spoken to you while being present with
26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send
in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance
all things that I said to you.
27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the
world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
28 "You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming
back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said,
'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.
29 "And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does
come to pass, you may believe.
30 "I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this
world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
31 "But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as
the Father gave Me commandment, so I do...
1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2 "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;
and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear
3 "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken
4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless
you abide in Me.
5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and
I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch
and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the
fire, and they are burned.
7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask
what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8 "By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so
you will be My disciples.
9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My
10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just
as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain
in you, and that your joy may be full.
12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have
13 "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's
life for his friends.
14 "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
15 "No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know
what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all
things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
16 "You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that
you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain,
that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
17 "These things I command you, that you love one another.
18 "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it
19 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet
because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world,
therefore the world hates you.
20 "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater
than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute
you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
21 "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake,
because they do not know Him who sent Me.
22 "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin,
but now they have no excuse for their sin.
23 "He who hates Me hates My Father also.
24 "If I had not done among them the works which no one else did,
they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated
both Me and My Father.
25 "But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is
written in their law, 'They hated Me without a cause.'
26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the
Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will
testify of Me.
4 "...these things I have told you, that when the time comes,
you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did
not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 "But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks
Me, 'Where are You going?'
6 "But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled
7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage
that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come
to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the
15 and said, "What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him
to you?" And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver.
16 So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.
12 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed
the Passover lamb, His disciples said to Him, "Where do You want
us to go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?"
13 And He sent out two of His disciples and said to them, "Go
into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water;
14 "Wherever he goes in, say to the master of the house, 'The
Teacher says, "Where is the guest room in which I may eat the
Passover with My disciples?"'
15 "Then he will show you a large upper room, furnished and prepared;
there make ready for us."
16 So His disciples went out, and came into the city, and found
it just as He had said to them; and they prepared the Passover.
17 In the evening He came with the twelve.
18 Now as they sat and ate, Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you,
one of you who eats with Me will betray Me."
19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him one by one,
"Is it I?" And another said, "Is it I?"
20 He answered and said to them, "It is one of the twelve, who
dips with Me in the dish.
21 "The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but
woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have
been good for that man if he had never been born."
22 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke
it, and gave it to them and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
23 Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave
it to them, and they all drank from it.
24 And He said to them, "This is My blood of the new covenant,
which is shed for many.
25 "Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit
of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom
26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of
24 Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them
should be considered the greatest.
25 And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship
over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called
26 "But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest
among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he
27 "For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves?
Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the
One who serves.
28 "But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials.
29 "And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed
one upon Me,
30 "that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and
sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
31 And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for
you, that he may sift you as wheat.
32 "But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail;
and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."
27 Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will be made to stumble
because of Me this night, for it is written: 'I will strike the
Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.'
28 "But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee."
29 Peter said to Him, "Even if all are made to stumble, yet I
will not be."
30 Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you that today, even
this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three
31 But he spoke more vehemently, "If I have to die with You, I
will not deny You!" And they all said likewise.
32 Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He
said to His disciples, "Sit here while I pray."
33 And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to
be troubled and deeply distressed.
34 Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even
to death. Stay here and watch."
35 He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed
that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
36 And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You.
Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but
what You will."
43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat
became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples,
He found them sleeping from sorrow.
37 Then He... said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you
not watch one hour?
38 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit
truly is willing, but the flesh is weak."
39 Again He went away and prayed, and spoke the same words.
40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, for their
eyes were heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.
41 Then He came the third time and said to them, "Are you still
sleeping and resting? It is enough! The hour has come; behold,
the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with His disciples
over the Brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and
His disciples entered.
2 And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; for Jesus
often met there with His disciples.
3 Then Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers
from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns,
torches, and weapons.
48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I
kiss, He is the One; seize Him."
49 Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!"
and kissed Him.
50 But Jesus said to him, "Friend, why have you come?"...
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him,
went forward and said to them, "Whom are you seeking?"
5 They answered Him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them,
"I am He." And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them.
6 Then-- when He said to them, "I am He,"-- they drew back and
fell to the ground.
7 Then He asked them again, "Whom are you seeking?" And they said,
"Jesus of Nazareth."
8 Jesus answered, "I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if
you seek Me, let these go their way,"
9 that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, "Of those
whom You gave Me I have lost none."
10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high
priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name
11 Then Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into the sheath.
Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?"
52 ... for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.
53 "Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He
will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?
51 ...Jesus ... said, "Permit even this." And He touched his ear
and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple,
and the elders who had come to Him, "Have you come out, as against
a robber, with swords and clubs?
53 "When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to
seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness."
12 Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers
of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him.
13 And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law
of Caiaphas who was high priest that year.
14 Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient
that one man should die for the people.
15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple.
Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with
Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest.
16 But Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple,
who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who
kept the door, and brought Peter in.
17 Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, "You
are not also one of this Man's disciples, are you?" He said, "I
18 And the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals
stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And
Peter stood with them and warmed himself.
19 The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples and His
20 Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world. I always
taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always
meet, and in secret I have said nothing.
21 "Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said
to them. Indeed they know what I said."
22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who
stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Do You
answer the high priest like that?"
23 Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, bear witness of
the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?"
24 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 Now Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. Therefore they said
to him, "You are not also one of His disciples, are you?" He denied
it and said, "I am not!"
26 One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose
ear Peter cut off, said, "Did I not see you in the garden with
27 Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed.
61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered
the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, "Before the rooster
crows, you will deny Me three times."
62 So Peter went out and wept bitterly.
63 Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and beat Him.
64 And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and
asked Him, saying, "Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?"
65 And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.
66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief
priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council,
67 "If You are the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If
I tell you, you will by no means believe.
68 "And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let
69 "Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the
power of God."
70 Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said
to them, "You rightly say that I am."
71 And they said, "What further testimony do we need? For we have
heard it ourselves from His own mouth."
28 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it
was early morning. But they themselves did not go into the Praetorium,
lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover.
3 Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned,
was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to
the chief priests and elders,
4 saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." And they
said, "What is that to us? You see to it!"
5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed,
and went and hanged himself.
6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, "It is
not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the
price of blood."
7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter's
field, to bury strangers in.
8 Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this
9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet,
saying, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value
of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced,
10 "and gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed
ZECHARIAH 11:10-13 "Prophecy
10 And I took my staff, Beauty, and cut it in two, that I might
break the covenant which I had made with all the peoples.
11 So it was broken on that day. Thus the poor of the flock, who
were watching me, knew that it was the word of the LORD.
12 Then I said to them, "If it is agreeable to you, give me my
wages; and if not, refrain." So they weighed out for my wages
thirty pieces of silver.
13 And the LORD said to me, "Throw it to the potter"-- that princely
price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and
threw them into the house of the LORD for the potter.
