Mark 14:17-42

When it was evening He *came with the twelve. As they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, “Truly I say to you that one of you will [a]betray Me—[b]one who is eating with Me.” They began to be grieved and to say to Him one by one, “Surely not I?” And He said to them, It is one of the twelve, [c]one who dips with Me in the bowl. For the Son of Man is to go just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man [d]by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good [e]for that man if he had not been born.”

The Lord’s Supper

While they were eating, He took some bread, and [f]after a blessing He broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. Truly I say to you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

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

And Jesus *said to them, “You will all [g]fall away, because it is written, ‘I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.’ But after I have been raised, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.” But Peter said to Him, “Even though all may [h]fall away, yet I will not.” And Jesus *said to him, “Truly I say to you, that [i]this very night, before a rooster crows twice, you yourself will deny Me three times.” But Peter kept saying insistently, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” And they all were saying the same thing also.

Jesus in Gethsemane

They *came to a place named Gethsemane; and He *said to His disciples, “Sit here until I have prayed.” And He *took with Him Peter and [j]James and John, and began to be very distressed and troubled. And He *said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.” And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, the hour might [k]pass Him by. And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.” And He *came and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again He went away and prayed, saying the same [l]words. And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him. And He *came the third time, and *said to them, [m]Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being [n]betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”
