4. Instituting His Supper That the Disciples
Might Participate in His Death
7 And the day of 1Unleavened Bread came, on which the apassover had to be 2sacrificed.
8 And He sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare the passover for us, so that we may eat it.
9 And they said to Him, Where do You want us to prepare it?
10 And He told them, Behold, as you are entering into the city, a man carrying an earthen jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house which he enters.
11 And you shall say to the master of the house, The aTeacher says to you, Where is the guest room where I may eat the passover with My disciples?
12 And that one will show you a large aupper room furnished; prepare there.
13 And they left and afound it even as He had told them, and they prepared the passover.
14 And when the hour came, He areclined at table, and the apostles with Him.
15 And He said to them, With desire I have desired to 1eat this passover with you before I suffer,
16 For I tell you that I shall by no means eat it until 1it is fulfilled in the akingdom of God.
17 And He received a cup and gave athanks and said, Take this and divide it among yourselves;
18 For I tell you, I shall by no means drink from now on of the 1product of the vine until the akingdom of God comes.
19 1And He took a aloaf and gave thanks, and He broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My bbody which is being given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.
20 And similarly the cup after they had dined, saying, This cup is the anew covenant established in My bblood, which is being poured out for you.
21 But behold, the ahand of the 1one bbetraying Me is cwith Me at the table.
22 For the Son of Man is going according to what has been adetermined, but woe to that man through whom He is betrayed!
23 And they began to discuss among themselves who then of them it was who was about to do this.
