21:35. For as a snare shall it come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth.
21:36. Watch ye, therefore, praying at all times, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come and to stand before the Son of man.
21:37. And in the daytime, he was teaching in the temple: but at night going out, he abode in the mount that is called Olivet.
21:38. And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.
Luke Chapter 22
The treason of Judas. The last supper. The first part of the history of the passion.
22:1. Now the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the pasch, was at hand.
22:2. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put Jesus to death: but they feared the people.
22:3. And Satan entered into Judas, who was surnamed Iscariot, one of the twelve.
22:4. And he went and discoursed with the chief priests and the magistrates, how he might betray him to them.
22:5. And they were glad and covenanted to give him money.
22:6. And he promised. And he sought opportunity to betray him in the absence of the multitude.
22:7. And the day of the unleavened bread came, on which it was necessary that the pasch should be killed.
22:8. And he sent Peter and John, saying: Go, and prepare for us the pasch, that we may eat.
22:9. But they said: Where wilt thou that we prepare?
22:10. And he said to them: Behold, as you go into the city, there shall meet you a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him into the house where he entereth in.
22:11. And you shall say to the goodman of the house: The master saith to thee: Where is the guest chamber, where I may eat the pasch with my disciples?
22:12. And he will shew you a large dining room, furnished. And there prepare.
22:13. And they going, found as he had said to them and made ready the pasch.
22:14. And when the hour was come, he sat down: and the twelve apostles with him.
22:15. And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer.
22:16. For I say to you that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
22:17. And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks and said: Take and divide it among you.
22:18. For I say to you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come.
22:19. And taking bread, he gave thanks and brake and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me.
Do this for a commemoration of me... This sacrifice and sacrament is to be continued in the church, to the end of the world, to shew forth the death of Christ, until he cometh. But this commemoration, or remembrance, is by no means inconsistent with the real presence of his body and blood, under these sacramental veils, which represent his death; on the contrary, it is the manner that he himself hath commanded, of commemorating and celebrating his death, by offering in sacrifice, and receiving in the sacrament, that body and blood by which we were redeemed.
22:20. In like manner, the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.
22:21. But yet behold: the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
22:22. And the Son of man indeed goeth, according to that which is determined: but yet, woe to that man by whom he shall be betrayed.
22:23. And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
22:24. And there was also a strife amongst them, which of them should seem to be the greater.
22:25. And he said to them: The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that have power over them are called beneficent.
22:26. But you not so: but he that is the greater among you, let him become as the younger: and he that is the leader, as he that serveth.
22:27. For which is greater, he that sitteth at table or he that serveth? Is not he that sitteth at table? But I am in the midst of you, as he that serveth.
22:28. And you are they who have continued with me in my temptations:
22:29. And I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a kingdom;
22:30. That you may eat and drink at my table, in my kingdom: and may sit upon thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
22:31. And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.
22:32. But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren.
22:33. Who said to him: Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison and to death.
22:34. And he said: I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, till thou thrice deniest that thou knowest me. And he said to them:
22:35. When I sent you without purse and scrip and shoes, did you want anything?
22:36. But they said: Nothing. Then said he unto them: But now he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a scrip: and he that hath not, let him sell his coat and buy a sword.
22:37. For I say to you that this that is written must yet be fulfilled in me. And with the wicked was he reckoned. For the things concerning me have an end.
22:38. But they said: Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said to them: It is enough.
22:39. And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the Mount of Olives. And his disciples also followed him.
22:40. And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
22:41. And he was withdrawn away from them a stone's cast. And kneeling down, he prayed.
22:42. Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will, but thine be done.
22:43. And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony, he prayed the longer.
