The Plot to Kill Jesus

It was two days before the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a cunning way to arrest Jesus and kill him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:3 -

While he was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper,[fn] as he was reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured it on his head.

But some were expressing indignation to one another: “Why has this perfume been wasted?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:5 -

“For this perfume might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii[fn] and given to the poor.” And they began to scold her.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:6 -

Jesus replied, “Leave her alone. Why are you bothering her? She has done a noble thing for me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:7 -

“You always have the poor with you, and you can do what is good for them whenever you want, but you do not always have me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:8 -

“She has done what she could; she has anointed my body in advance for burial.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:9 -

“Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:10 -

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.

And when they heard this, they were glad and promised to give him money. So he started looking for a good opportunity to betray him.

Preparation for Passover

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:12 -

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrifice the Passover lamb, his disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and prepare the Passover so that you may eat it? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:13 -

So he sent two of his disciples and told them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:14 -

“Wherever he enters, tell the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? ” ’

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:15 -

He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make the preparations for us there.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:16 -

So the disciples went out, entered the city, and found it just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:20 -

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:21 -

“For the Son of Man will go just as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for him if he had not been born.”

The First Lord’s Supper

As they were eating, he took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is my body.”

Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:25 -

After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Peter’s Denial Predicted

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:27 -

Then Jesus said to them, “All of you will fall away,[fn] because it is written:

I will strike the shepherd,

and the sheep will be scattered.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:28 -

“But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:29 -

Peter told him, “Even if everyone falls away, I will not.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:30 -

“Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to him, “today, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:31 -

The Prayer in the Garden

Then they came to a place named Gethsemane, and he told his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:33 -

He took Peter, James, and John with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:34 -

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:35 -

He went a little farther, fell to the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:36 -

And he said, “Abba,[fn] Father! All things are possible for you. Take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, not what I will, but what you will.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:37 -

Then he came and found them sleeping. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you sleeping? Couldn’t you stay awake one hour?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:38 -

“Stay awake and pray so that you won’t enter into temptation.[fn] The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:39 -

Once again he went away and prayed, saying the same thing.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:40 -

And again he came and found them sleeping, because they could not keep their eyes open. They did not know what to say to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:41 -

Then he came a third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The time has come. See, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:42 -

“Get up; let’s go. See, my betrayer is near.”

Judas’s Betrayal of Jesus

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:43 -

While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, suddenly arrived. With him was a mob, with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:44 -

His betrayer had given them a signal. “The one I kiss,” he said, “he’s the one; arrest him and take him away under guard.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:45 -

So when he came, immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Rabbi! ” and kissed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:46 -

They took hold of him and arrested him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:47 -

One of those who stood by drew his sword, struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his ear.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:48 -

Jesus said to them, “Have you come out with swords and clubs, as if I were a criminal,[fn] to capture me?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:49 -

“Every day I was among you, teaching in the temple, and you didn’t arrest me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:50 -

Then they all deserted him and ran away.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:51 -

Now a certain young man, wearing nothing but a linen cloth, was following him. They caught hold of him,

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:52 -

but he left the linen cloth behind and ran away naked.

Jesus Faces the Sanhedrin

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:53 -

They led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes assembled.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:54 -

Peter followed him at a distance, right into the high priest’s courtyard. He was sitting with the servants,[fn] warming himself by the fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:55 -

The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for testimony against Jesus to put him to death, but they could not find any.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:56 -

For many were giving false testimony against him, and the testimonies did not agree.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:57 -

Some stood up and gave false testimony against him, stating,

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:58 -

“We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this temple made with human hands, and in three days I will build another not made by hands.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:59 -

Yet their testimony did not agree even on this.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:60 -

Then the high priest stood up before them all and questioned Jesus, “Don’t you have an answer to what these men are testifying against you? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:61 -

But he kept silent and did not answer. Again the high priest questioned him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:62 -

“I am,” said Jesus, “and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:63 -

Then the high priest tore his robes and said, “Why do we still need witnesses?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:64 -

“You have heard the blasphemy. What is your decision? ” They all condemned him as deserving death.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:65 -

Then some began to spit on him, to blindfold him, and to beat him, saying, “Prophesy! ” The temple servants also took him and slapped him.

Peter Denies His Lord

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:66 -

While Peter was in the courtyard below, one of the high priest’s maidservants came.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:67 -

When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with Jesus, the man from Nazareth.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:68 -

But he denied it: “I don’t know or understand what you’re talking about.” Then he went out to the entryway,[fn] and a rooster crowed.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:69 -

When the maidservant saw him again, she began to tell those standing nearby, “This man is one of them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:70 -

But again he denied it. After a little while those standing there said to Peter again, “You certainly are one of them, since you’re also a Galilean.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:71 -

Then he started to curse and swear, “I don’t know this man you’re talking about! ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 14:72 -

Immediately a rooster crowed a second time, and Peter remembered when Jesus had spoken the word to him, “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept.
