The Jews conspire against Christ.
Luke 22:1 And the feast of the unleavened bread, which is called a Passover, was drawing near. Luke 22:2 And the High-priests and the Scribes were seeking, how they might get rid of him; for they feared the people.
Satan prepareth Judas to betray him.
Luke 22:3 But Satan entered into Judas, him called Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve; Luke 22:4 and, departing, he conversed with the High-priests and Captains, as to how, unto them, he might deliver him up. Luke 22:5 And they rejoiced, and bargained with him to give him, silver; Luke 22:6 and he freely consented, and began seeking a good opportunity for delivering him up, in the absence of a multitude, unto them.
The Apostles prepare the Passover.
Luke 22:7 Now the day of the unleavened bread a came,on which it was needful to be sacrificing the passover. Luke 22:8 And he sent forth Peter and John, sayingGo, and make ready, for us, the passover, that we may eat. Luke 22:9 And, they, said unto himWhere wiliest thou, we should make ready? Luke 22:10 And, he, said unto themLo! when ye have entered into the city, there will meet you a man, bearing, an earthen-jar of water: follow him into the house into which he is entering. Luke 22:11 And ye shall say unto the master of the houseThe teacher saith unto thee, where is the lodging, where, the passover, with my disciples, I may eat? Luke 22:12 And, he, unto you, will shew, a large upper room, spread: there, make ready. Luke 22:13 And, departing, they found according as he had said unto them, and made ready the passover. Luke 22:14 And, when the hour arrived, he reclined, and the apostles with him. Luke 22:15 And he said unto themI have greatly desired, to eat, this passover, with you before I suffer; Luke 22:16 For, I say unto youIn nowise shall I eat it, until it have been fulfilled in the kingdom of God. Luke 22:17 And, accepting a cup, giving thanks, he saidTake this, and divide among yourselves; Luke 22:18 For, I say unto youIn nowise shall I drink henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until, the kingdom of God, shall come.
Christ instituteth his holy supper:
Luke 22:19 And, taking a loaf, he gave thanks, and brake, and gave unto them, sayingThis is my body [which in your behalf is being given: this, be ye doing, in remembrance, of me.] Luke 22:20 [Andthe cup, in like manner, after the taking of supper, sayingThis cup, is the new covenant in my blood, which, in your behalf, is to be poured out.]
covertly foretelleth of the traitor:
Luke 22:21 Nevertheless, lo! the hand of him who is delivering me up, is with me upon the table. Luke 22:22 Because, the Son of Man, indeed, according to what is marked out, goeth his way; nevertheless, alas! for that man through whom he is being delivered up. Luke 22:23 And, they, began to be enquiring together, among themselves, as to which, then, it could be, from among them, who, this thing, was about to perpetrate!
dehorteth the rest of his Apostles from ambition:
Luke 22:24 And it came to pass that there was, a rivalry also, among them, as to which of them seemed to be greater [than the rest]. Luke 22:25 And, he, said unto themThe kings of the nations, lord it over them, and, they who wield authority over them, benefactors, are called. Luke 22:26 But, ye, not so! On the contrarythe greater among you, Let him become as, the younger, and, he that governeth, as, he that ministereth, Luke 22:27 For which is greaterhe that reclineth? or he that ministereth? Is not he that reclineth? But, I, am, in your midst, as he that ministereth, Luke 22:28 Ye, however, are they who have remained throughout with me in my temptations; Luke 22:29 And, I, covenant unto youas my Father hath covenanted unto mea kingdom, Luke 22:30 That ye may eat and drink, at my table, in my kingdom, and sit upon thrones, judging, the twelve tribes of Israel.
assureth Peter his faith should not fail,
Luke 22:31 Simon! Simon! lo! Satan, hath claimed you, to sift as wheat; Luke 22:32 But, I, have entreated for thee, that thy faith may not fail. And, thou, once thou hast turned, strengthen thy brethren. Luke 22:33 But, he, said unto himLord! with thee, am I, ready, both into prison and unto death, to be going.
and yet he should deny him thrice.
Luke 22:34 And, he, said: I tell thee, PeterA cock will not crow this day, until, thrice, thou deny that thou knowest me. Luke 22:35 And he said unto themWhen I sent you forth, without purse or satchel or sandals, of anything, came ye short? And, they, saidOf nothing! Luke 22:36 And he said unto themBut, now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, in like manner also, a satchel; and, he that hath nothing, let him sell his mantle, and buy a sword! Luke 22:37 For I say unto youThis that is written, must needs be completed in me,And, with lawless ones, was he reckoned; for, even that which concerneth me, hath, completion. Luke 22:38 And, they, saidLord, lo! two swords, here! And, he, said unto them'Tis, enough!
He prayeth in the mount, and sweateth blood:
Luke 22:39 And going out, he went, according to his custom, unto the Mount of Olives; and the disciples [also] followed him. Luke 22:40 And, coming up to the place, he said unto themBe praying, lest ye enter into temptation. Luke 22:41 And, he, was torn from them about a stone's throw; and, bending his knees, he began to pray, Luke 22:42 sayingFather! if thou please, bear aside this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be accomplished. Luke 22:43 [And there appeared unto him a messenger from heaven, strengthening him,] Luke 22:44 [and, coming to be in an agony, more intensely, was he praying; and his perspiration became, as if great drops of blood, falling upon the ground.] Luke 22:45 And, arising from prayer, he came unto his disciples, and found them falling asleep by reason of their grief; Luke 22:46 and he said unto themWhy are ye slumbering? Arise! and be praying, lest ye enter into temptation.
is betrayed with a kiss:
Luke 22:47 While yet he was speaking, lo! a multitude; and, he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them on,and he drew near unto Jesus, to kiss him. Luke 22:48 But, Jesus, said to himJudas! with a kiss, the Son of Man, dost thou deliver up? Luke 22:49 And they who were about him, seeing what would be, saidLord! shall we smite with the sword?
he healeth Malchus' ear:
Luke 22:50 And a certain one from among them smote, the High-priest's, servant, and took off his right ear. Luke 22:51 But Jesus, answering, saidLet beas long as this! . . . And, touching the ear, he healed him. Luke 22:52 And Jesus said unto the High-priests, and Captains of the temple, and Elders, who had come against himAs against a robber, have ye come out, with swords and clubs? Luke 22:53 Daily, was I with you, in the temple, and yet ye stretched not forth your hands against me! . . . But, this, is your hour, and the authority of darkness.
he is thrice denied of Peter,
Luke 22:54 And, having arrested him, they led him away, and took him into the house of the High-priest; and, Peter, was following afar. Luke 22:55 And, they having kindled up a fire in the midst of the court, and taken seats together, Peter was for sitting among them. Luke 22:56 But, a certain maid-servant, seeing him seating himself towards the light, and looking steadfastly at him, saidThis one also, was, with him. Luke 22:57 But, he, denied, sayingI know him not, woman! Luke 22:58 And, after a little, another, beholding him, saidThou also, art, from among them. But, Peter, saidMan! I am not. Luke 22:59 And, about one hour having passed, a certain other, began stoutly to insist, sayingOf a truth, this one also, was with him; for indeed he is, a Galilaean. Luke 22:60 But Peter saidMan! I know not what thou art saying! And, instantly while yet he was speaking, a cock crew. Luke 22:61 And the Lord turned, and looked at Peter; and Peter was put in mind of the declaration of the Lord, how he had said to himBefore, a cock, crow this day, thou wilt deny me thrice! Luke 22:62 [And, going forth outside, he wept bitterly.]
Luke 22:63 And, the men who held him bound, kept mocking him, with blows; Luke 22:64 and, blindfolding him, questioned him, sayingProphesy! which is he that smote thee? Luke 22:65 and, many other things, with profane speech, were they saying unto him.
and confesseth himself to be the Son of God.
Luke 22:66 And, when it became day, the Eldership of the people was gathered togetherboth High-priests and Scribes,and they led him away into their high-council, sayingIf, thou, art the Christ, tell us! Luke 22:67 But he said unto themIf I should tell, you, in nowise would ye believe, Luke 22:68 And, if I should put questions, in nowise would ye answer; Luke 22:69 But, henceforth, shall the Son of Man be seated on the right hand of the power of God. Luke 22:70 And they all saidThou, then, art the Son of God? And, he, unto them saidYe, say [it],because, I, am. Luke 22:71 And, they, saidWhat, further, need have we, of witness? We ourselves, have heard it from his mouth.
