The Plot to Kill Jesus
(Mark 14:1–2; Luke 22:1–2; John 11:45–57)
3 At that time the chief priests and elders of the people assembled in the courtyard of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, 4 and they conspired to arrest Jesus covertly and kill Him. 5 “But not during the feast,” they said, “or there may be a riot among the people.”
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
(Mark 14:3–9;Luke 7:36–50; John 12:1–8)
10 Aware of this, Jesus asked,
Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
(Mark 14:10–11; Luke 22:3–6)
14 Then one of the Twelve, the one called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you?” And they set out for him thirty pieces of silver. 16 So from then on Judas looked for an opportunity to betray Jesus.
Preparing the Passover
(Mark 14:12–16; Luke 22:7–13)
18 He answered,
The Last Supper
(Mark 14:17–26; Luke 22:14–23; 1 Corinthians 11:17–34)
22 They were deeply grieved and began to ask Him one after another, “Surely not I, Lord?”
23 Jesus answered,
25 Then Judas, who would betray Him, said, “Surely not I, Rabbi?”
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, spoke a blessing and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, saying,
27 Then He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying,
30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
(Zechariah 13:7–9; Mark 14:27–31; Luke 22:31–38; John 13:36–38)
31 Then Jesus said to them,
‘I will strike the Shepherd,
and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ f
32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”
33 Peter said to Him, “Even if all fall away on account of You, I never will.”
35 Peter replied, “Even if I have to die with You, I will never deny You.” And all the other disciples said the same thing.
Jesus Prays at Gethsemane
(Mark 14:32–42; Luke 22:39–46)
36 At that time Jesus went with His disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and He told them,
37 He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee and began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.
38 Then He said to them,
39 Going a little farther, He fell facedown and prayed,
40 Then Jesus returned to the disciples and found them sleeping.
44 So He left them and went away once more and prayed a third time, saying the same thing.
45 Then He returned to the disciples and said,
The Betrayal of Jesus
(Mark 14:43–52; Luke 22:47–53; John 18:1–14)
47 While Jesus was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived, accompanied by a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and elders of the people.
Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus, and arrested Him. 51 At this, one of Jesus’ companions drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.
55 At that time Jesus said to the crowd,
Jesus before the Sanhedrin
(Mark 14:53–65; Luke 22:66–71; John 18:19–24)
57 Those who had arrested Jesus led Him away to the house of Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and elders had gathered. 58 But Peter followed Him at a distance, right up to the courtyard of the high priest. And he went in and sat down with the guards to see the outcome.
Finally two came forward 61 and declared, “This man said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.’ ”
62 So the high priest stood up and asked Him, “Have You no answer? What are these men testifying against You?”
63 But Jesus remained silent.
“He deserves to die,” they answered.
Peter Denies Jesus
(Mark 14:66–72; Luke 22:54–62; John 18:15–18)
69 Meanwhile, Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, and a servant girl came up to him. “You also were with Jesus the Galilean,” she said.
70 But he denied it before them all: “I do not know what you are talking about.”
71 When Peter had gone out to the gateway, another servant girl saw him and said to the people there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.”
72 And again he denied it with an oath: “I do not know the man!”
73 After a little while, those standing nearby came up to Peter. “Surely you are one of them,” they said, “for your accent gives you away.”
74 At that he began to curse and swear to them, “I do not know the man!”
And immediately a rooster crowed.
75 Then Peter remembered the word that Jesus had spoken:
