Bible NIV, The Words of Jesus Christ


Chapter 22

{8} "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
{10} "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 upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
{15} "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} "Take this and divide it among you.
{18} For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
{19} "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
{20} "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

{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."
{25} "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 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"
{34} I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me."
{35} "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?"
{36} "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' ; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment."
{38} "That is enough,"
{40} "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
{42} "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."
{46}"Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
{48}"Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
{51} "No more of this!"
{52} "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."
{61} "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times."
{67} "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}"You are right in saying I am."
