New International Version

Luke 22

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

1Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money. He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.

The Last Supper

Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”

“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.

10 He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, 11 and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 12 He will show you a large room upstairs, all furnished. Make preparations there.”

13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.

14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”

17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.[a] 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed. But woe to that man who betrays him!” 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.

24 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials. 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

33 But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.”

34 Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.”

35 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?”

“Nothing,” they answered.

36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’[b]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”

38 The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”

“That’s enough!” he replied.

Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives

39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.[c]

45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

Jesus Arrested

47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

49 When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour—when darkness reigns.”

Peter Disowns Jesus

54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. 55 And when some there had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, “This man was with him.”

57 But he denied it. “Woman, I don’t know him,” he said.

58 A little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.”

“Man, I am not!” Peter replied.

59 About an hour later another asserted, “Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean.”

60 Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.” 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

The Guards Mock Jesus

63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.

Jesus Before Pilate and Herod

66 At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. 67 “If you are the Messiah,” they said, “tell us.”

Jesus answered, “If I tell you, you will not believe me, 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer. 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”

70 They all asked, “Are you then the Son of God?”

He replied, “You say that I am.”

71 Then they said, “Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips.”

路加福音 22

犹大出卖耶稣

1除酵节,又名逾越节,快到了。 祭司长和律法教师因为害怕百姓,便密谋如何杀害耶稣。 这时,撒旦进入加略人犹大的心,这人原是十二使徒之一。 他去见祭司长和圣殿护卫长,商议如何把耶稣出卖给他们, 他们喜出望外,答应给犹大一笔酬金。 犹大同意了,便伺机找百姓不在的场合将耶稣交给他们。

最后的晚餐

除酵节到了,那天要宰杀逾越羊羔。 耶稣差派彼得和约翰出去,说:“你们为我们准备逾越节吃的晚餐。”

他们问:“你要我们到哪里去预备呢?”

10 耶稣回答说:“你们进城的时候,一个男子会扛着一瓶水迎面走来,你们要跟着他,他进哪所房子,你们也进去, 11 对房子的主人说,‘老师问你客房在哪里,祂要和门徒在里面吃逾越节的晚餐。’ 12 那主人会带你们到楼上一间布置整齐的大房间,你们就在那里预备吧。”

13 他们进了城,所遇见的果然和耶稣所说的一样。他们便在那里预备逾越节的晚餐。

设立圣餐

14 晚餐时,耶稣和使徒们一同坐席。 15 耶稣对他们说:“我一直盼望在受难之前和你们同吃这个逾越节的宴席。 16 我告诉你们,在这宴席成就在上帝的国度之前,我不会再吃这宴席了。”

17 祂接过杯来,祝谢后,说:“你们拿去分着喝吧。 18 我告诉你们,在上帝的国降临之前,我不会再喝这葡萄酒了。”

19 接着,祂拿起饼来,祝谢后,掰开递给他们,说:“这是我为你们牺牲的身体,你们今后也要这样做,以纪念我。”

20 饭后,祂又举起杯来,说:“这杯是用我的血立的新约,这血是为你们流的。

21 “但是看啊,那出卖我之人的手和我的手都在桌子上。 22 按照所定的,人子要死去,但那出卖人子的人有祸了!” 23 他们开始彼此追问谁会出卖耶稣。

谁最伟大

24 门徒又开始争论他们当中谁最伟大。 25 耶稣对他们说:“外族人有君王统治他们,那些统治者被称为恩主, 26 但你们不可这样。相反,你们中间地位最高的,要像最卑微的;做首领的,要像服侍人的。 27 坐着吃饭的和伺候的哪个地位高呢?难道不是坐着的那个吗?然而,我在你们当中是服侍人的。

28 “在我患难之时,你们一直在我身边, 29 所以,我父怎样将国赐给我,我也照样将国赐给你们, 30 使你们在我的国中和我一同坐席,并且坐在宝座上审判以色列的十二个支派。”

预言彼得不认主

31 耶稣说:“西门!西门!撒旦已经要求像筛麦子一样筛你们, 32 但我已经为你祷告了,叫你不至于失去信心。你回头以后,要让你的弟兄刚强。”

33 西门·彼得说:“主啊,我愿意和你一起坐牢,一起受死!”

34 耶稣说:“彼得,我告诉你,明早鸡叫之前,你会三次不认我。”

35 耶稣又问门徒:“我派你们出去的时候,无钱袋、背包和鞋子,你们有任何缺乏吗?”

他们答道:“没有。”

36 耶稣说:“但现在如果有钱袋或背包,都要带着;如果没有刀剑,要卖掉衣服买刀剑。 37 我告诉你们,‘祂要被列在罪犯中’这句经文必在我身上应验,因为圣经上有关我的事情快要实现了。”

38 他们说:“主啊,请看,这里有两把刀。”耶稣说:“够了。”

橄榄山上的祷告

39 耶稣离开,像往常一样前往橄榄山,门徒也跟去了。 40 到了山上,祂对门徒说:“你们要祷告,以免陷入诱惑!”

41 然后,祂独自走到离门徒约有扔一块石头那么远的地方跪下祷告: 42 “父啊,若你愿意,求你撤去此杯。然而,愿你的旨意成就,而非我的意愿。” 43 有一位从天上来的天使向祂显现,给祂加添力量。

44 祂心中极其悲痛,祷告更恳切,汗珠如血滴在地上。

45 祂祷告完后,便起身回到门徒那里,看见他们因忧愁而疲惫地睡着了, 46 就说:“你们为什么睡觉呢?要起来祷告,以免陷入诱惑!”

耶稣被捕

47 耶稣还在说话的时候,十二使徒中的犹大已带着一群人赶到,他上前亲吻耶稣。 48 耶稣对他说:“犹大,你用亲吻的暗号来出卖人子吗?”

49 跟随耶稣的人见他们来势汹汹,就说:“主啊,我们该拔刀抵抗吗?” 50 其中一人拔刀朝大祭司的奴仆砍过去,削掉了他的右耳。

51 耶稣却说:“住手!够了!”于是祂摸那奴仆的耳朵,治好了他, 52 然后对前来抓祂的祭司长、圣殿护卫长和长老说:“你们像对付强盗一样拿着刀棍来抓我吗? 53 我天天和你们一起在圣殿里,你们没有抓我。但现在正是黑暗当权、你们得势的时候了!”

彼得不认主

54 他们把耶稣押到大祭司的府第。彼得远远地跟在后面。

55 他们在庭院当中生起了火,围坐取暖,彼得也坐在他们中间。 56 有个婢女看见彼得坐在火堆边,打量他一番后,说:“这人是与耶稣一伙的!”

57 彼得却否认说:“你这女子,我不认识祂。”

58 过了一会儿,又有个人看见了彼得,就说:“你也是跟他们一伙的!”

彼得说:“你这人,我不是!”

59 大约一小时之后,又有人指着彼得肯定地说:“这人确实是和耶稣一伙的,因为他也是加利利人。”

60 彼得说:“你这人,我不知道你在说什么!”话才出口,鸡就叫了。

61 这时,主转过头来望着彼得,彼得想起主对他说的话:“明早鸡叫之前,你会三次不认我。” 62 他就到外面,痛哭起来。

在公会受审

63 看守耶稣的人嘲弄祂,殴打祂, 64 蒙住祂的眼睛,对祂说:“说预言吧!是谁在打你?” 65 还说了许多侮辱祂的话。

66 天亮后,民间的长老、祭司长和律法教师聚在一起,把耶稣押到他们的公会, 67 对祂说:“如果你是基督,就告诉我们。”

耶稣说:“即使我告诉你们,你们也不会相信。 68 如果我问你们,你们也不会回答。 69 但从今以后,人子要坐在全能上帝的右边。”

70 他们都问:“那么,你是上帝的儿子吗?”耶稣回答说:“你们说我是。”

71 他们说:“我们还需要什么见证呢?我们已经听见祂自己说的了。”
