Matthew: 26

The Plot to Kill Jesus  Mt.26.1-5 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.1-5 → ] - Mk.14.1-2, Lk.22.1-2, Jn.11.45-53

1WHEN JESUS HAD FINISHED this discourse he said to his disciples, 2'You know that in two days' time it will be Passover, and the Son of Man is to be handed over for crucifixion.'

3Then the chief priests and the elders of the nation met in the palace of the High Priest, Caiaphas; 4and there they conferred together on a scheme to have Jesus arrested by some trick and put to death. 5'It must not be during the festival,' they said, 'or there may be rioting among the people.'

The Anointing at Bethany   Mt.26.6-13 ( Bethany )[ Mt.26.6-13 → ] - Mk.14.3-9, Lk.12.1-8

6JESUS WAS AT BETHANY in the house of Simon the leper, 7when a woman came to him with a small bottle of fragrant oil, very costly; and as he sat at table she began to pour it over his head. 8The disciples were indignant when they saw it. 'Why this waste?' they said; 9'it could have been sold for a good sum and the money given to the poor.' 10Jesus was aware of this, and said to them, 'Why must you make trouble for the woman? It is a fine thing she has done for me. 11You have the poor among you always; but you will not always have me. 12When she poured this oil on my body it was her way of preparing me for burial. 13I tell you this: wherever in all the world this gospel is proclaimed, what she has done will be told as her memorial.'

Judas' Agreement to Betray Jesus  Mt.26.14-16 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.14-16 → ] - Mk.14.10-11, Lk.22.3-6

14THEN ONE OF THE TWELVE, the man called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 [ Zch.11.12. ] and said, 'What will you give me to betray him to you?' They weighed him out [Or: agreed to pay him ...] thirty silver pieces. 16From that moment he began to look for an opportunity to betray him.

The Passover with the Disciples  Mt.26.17-25 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.17-25 → ] - Mk.14.12-21, Lk.22.7-14, Lk.22.21-23, Jn.13.21-30

17On the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to ask Jesus, 'Where would you like us to prepare for your Passover supper?' 18He answered, 'Go to a certain man in the city, and tell him, "The Master says, 'My appointed time is near; I am to keep Passover with my disciples at your house.' " ' 19The disciples did as Jesus directed them and prepared for Passover.

20In the evening he sat down with the twelve disciples; 21and during supper he said, 'I tell you this: one of you will betray me.' 22In great distress they exclaimed one after the other, 'Can you mean me. Lord?' 23He answered, 'One who has dipped his hand into this bowl with me will betray me. 24The Son of Man is going the way appointed for him in the scriptures; but alas for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had never been born.' 25Then Judas spoke, the one who was to betray him. 'Rabbi,' he said, 'can you mean me?' Jesus replied, 'The words are yours.' [Or: It is as you say.]

The Institution of the Lord's Supper  Mt.26.26-30 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.26-30 → ] - Mk.14.22-25, Lk.22.14-23, 1Cor.11.23-26

26During supper Jesus took bread, and having said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples with the words: 'Take this and eat; this is my body.' 27Then he took a cup, and having offered thanks to God he gave it to them with the words: 'Drink from it, all of you. 28For this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, never again shall I drink from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of my Father.'

30After singing the Passover Hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Peter's Denial Foretold   Mt.26.31-35 ( )[ Mt.26.31-35 → ] - Mk.14.27-31, Lk.22.31-34, Jn.13.36-38

31Then Jesus said to them, Tonight you will all fall from your faith on my account; for it stands written: "I will strike the shepherd down and the sheep of his flock will be scattered." 32But after I am raised again, I will go on before you into Galilee.' 33Peter replied, 'Everyone else may fall away on your account, but I never will.' 34Jesus said to him, 'I tell you, tonight before the cock crows you will disown me three times.' 35Peter said, 'Even if I must die with you, I will never disown you.' And all the disciples said the same.

The Prayer in Gethsemane  Mt.26.36-46 (Gethsemane)[ Mt.26.36-46 → ] - Mk.14.32-42, Lk.22.39-46

36JESUS THEN CAME with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane. He said to them, 'Sit here while I go over there to pray.' 37He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee. Anguish and dismay came over him, 38and he said to them, 'My heart is ready to break with grief. Stop here, and stay awake with me.' 39He went on a little, fell on his face in prayer, and said, 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Yet not as I will, but as thou wilt.'

40He came to the disciples and found them asleep; and he said to Peter, 'What! Could none of you stay awake with me one hour? 41Stay awake, and pray that you may be spared the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.'

42He went away a second time, and prayed: 'My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to pass me by without my drinking it, thy will be done.' 43He came again and found them asleep, for their eyes were heavy. 44So he left them and went away again; and he prayed the third time, using the same words as before.

45Then he came to the disciples and said to them, 'Still sleeping? Still taking your ease? The hour has come! The Son of Man is betrayed to sinful men. 46Up, let us go forward; the traitor is upon us.'

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus   Mt.26.47-56 ( Gethsemane )[ Mt.26.47-56 → ] - Mk.14.43-50, Lk.22.47-53, Jn.18.3-12

47While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, appeared; with him was a great crowd armed with swords and cudgels, sent by the chief priests and the elders of the nation. 48The traitor gave them this sign: 'The one I kiss is your man; seize him'; 49and stepping forward at once, he said, 'Hail, Rabbi!', and kissed him. 50Jesus replied, 'Friend, do what you are here to do.' [Or: Friend, what are you here for?] They then came forward, seized Jesus, and held him fast.

51At that moment one of those with Jesus reached for his sword and drew it, and he struck at the High Priest's servant and cut off his ear. 52But Jesus said to him, 'Put up your sword. All who take the sword die by the sword. 53Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to my Father, who would at once send to my aid more than twelve legions of angels? 54But how then could the scriptures be fulfilled, which say that this must be?'

55At the same time Jesus spoke to the crowd. 'Do you take me for a bandit,' he said, 'that you have come out with swords and cudgels to arrest me? Day after day I sat teaching in the temple, and you did not lay hands on me. 56But this has all happened to fulfil what the prophets wrote.'

Then the disciples all deserted him and ran away.

Jesus before the Council  Mt.26.57-68 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.57-68 → ] - Mk.14.53-65, Lk.22.54-55, Jn.18.13-14, Jn.18.19-24

57JESUS WAS LED OFF under arrest to the house of Caiaphas the High Priest, where the lawyers and elders were assembled. 58Peter followed him at a distance till he came to the High Priest's courtyard, and going in he sat down there among the attendants, meaning to see the end of it all.

59The chief priests and the whole Council tried to find some allegation against Jesus on which a death-sentence could be based; 60but they failed to find one, though many came forward with false evidence. Finally two men 61alleged that he had said, 'I can pull down the temple of God, and rebuild it in three days.' 62At this the High Priest rose and said to him, 'Have you no answer the the charge that these witnesses bring against you?' 63But Jesus kept silence. The High Priest then said, 'By the living God I charge you to tell us: Are you the Messiah, the Son of God?' 64 [ Ps.110.1, Dn.7.13. ] Jesus replied, "The words are yours. [Or: It is as you say.] But I tell you this: from now on, you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of God [Literally: of the Power.] and coming on the clouds of heaven.' 65At these words the High Priest tore his robes and exclaimed, 'Blasphemy! Need we call further witnesses? You have heard the blasphemy. 66What is your opinion?' 'He is guilty,' they answered; 'he should die.'
67Then they spat in his face and beat him with their fists; 68and others said, as they struck him, 'Now, Messiah, if you are a prophet, tell us who hit you.'

Peter's Denial of Jesus  Mt.26.69-75 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.26.69-75 → ] - Mk.14.66-72, Lk.22.56-62, Jn.18.15-18, Jn.18.25-27

69Meanwhile Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard when a serving-maid accosted him and said, "You were there too with Jesus the Galilean.' 70Peter denied it in face of them all. 'I do not know what you mean', he said. 71He then went out to the gateway, where another girl, seeing him, said to the people there, 'This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth.' 72Once again he denied it, saying with an oath, 'I do not know the man.' 73Shortly afterwards the bystanders came up and said to Peter, 'Surely you are another of them; your accent gives you away!' 74At this he broke into curses and declared with an oath: 'I do not know the man.' At that moment the cock crew. 75And Peter remembered how Jesus had said, 'Before the cock crows you will disown me three times.' He went outside, and wept bitterly.
