1 It was two days before the Passover and the feast of Unleavened Bread, and the chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to arrest Jesus by some trick and have him put to death.
John 13:1 Luke 22:1-2 Exod 12:6-20 Deut 16:1-8 Lev 23:5-7 Acts 4:25-28 John 11:47
2 For they said, 'It must not be during the festivities, or there will be a disturbance among the people.'

3 He was at Bethany in the house of Simon, a man who had suffered from a virulent skin-disease; he was at table when a woman came in with an alabaster jar of very costly ointment, pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the ointment on his head.

4 Some who were there said to one another indignantly, 'Why this waste of ointment?
John 12:4-5 Matt 26:8-9 Eccl 4:4 Eccl 5:4-8 Mal 1:12-13
5 Ointment like this could have been sold for over three hundred denarii and the money given to the poor'; and they were angry with her.
John 13:29 1Cor 10:10 Deut 1:27 Eph 4:28 Exod 16:7-8 John 6:7 John 6:43
6 But Jesus said, 'Leave her alone. Why are you upsetting her? What she has done for me is a good work.

10 Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, approached the chief priests with an offer to hand Jesus over to them.
John 13:2 Luke 22:3-6 Matt 26:14-16 John 13:30 Matt 10:4 Ps 41:9 John 6:70-71
11 They were delighted to hear it, and promised to give him money; and he began to look for a way of betraying him when the opportunity should occur.

12 On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, his disciples said to him, 'Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?'
Deut 16:1-4 Exod 12:6 Exod 12:8 Exod 12:18 1Cor 5:7-8 Exod 13:3 Gal 4:4
13 So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, 'Go into the city and you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him,
Heb 4:13 Heb 5:9 John 2:5 John 15:14 Luke 19:30-33 Luke 22:10-13 Mark 11:2-3
14 and say to the owner of the house which he enters, "The Master says: Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?"
John 11:28 John 13:13 Mark 10:17 Mark 11:3 Rev 3:20
15 He will show you a large upper room furnished with couches, all prepared. Make the preparations for us there.'
Acts 1:13 2Chr 6:30 Acts 20:8 John 21:17 Ps 110:3 Prov 16:1 Prov 21:1-2
16 The disciples set out and went to the city and found everything as he had told them, and prepared the Passover.
John 16:4 Luke 22:13 Luke 22:35
17 When evening came he arrived with the Twelve.
Luke 22:14 John 13:21-26 Luke 22:21-23 Matt 26:20-24
18 And while they were at table eating, Jesus said, 'In truth I tell you, one of you is about to betray me, one of you eating with me.'
John 6:70 Ps 41:9 John 1:51 John 3:3 John 3:5 John 3:11 John 5:19
19 They were distressed and said to him, one after another, 'Not me, surely?'
John 13:22 Luke 22:21-23 Matt 26:22
20 He said to them, 'It is one of the Twelve, one who is dipping into the same dish with me.
John 13:26 John 6:71 Luke 22:47 Mark 14:43 Matt 26:23 Matt 26:47
21 Yes, the Son of man is going to his fate, as the scriptures say he will, but alas for that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! Better for that man if he had never been born.'
Acts 2:23 Acts 13:27-29 Gen 3:15 Isa 52:14 Isa 53:1-12 John 19:28 John 19:36-37
22 And as they were eating he took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to them. 'Take it,' he said, 'this is my body.'
1Cor 10:16-17 Matt 26:26-29 Gen 41:26 John 6:23 John 6:48-58 Luke 22:18-20 Luke 24:30
23 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them, and all drank from it,
1Cor 10:16 Luke 22:17 Mark 14:22 Matt 26:27 Rom 14:6
24 and he said to them, 'This is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many.

26 After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives.
Matt 26:30 Luke 22:39 Matt 21:1 1Cor 14:15 Acts 16:25 Col 3:16 Eph 5:18-20
27 And Jesus said to them, 'You will all fall away, for the scripture says: I shall strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered;
Zech 13:7 John 16:32 Matt 26:31 2Tim 4:16 John 16:1 Luke 22:31-32
28 however, after my resurrection I shall go before you into Galilee.'
Mark 16:7 Matt 28:16 Matt 28:7 Matt 28:10 1Cor 15:4-6 John 21:1 Matt 16:21
29 Peter said, 'Even if all fall away, I will not.'
John 13:36-38 John 21:15 Luke 22:33-34 Matt 26:33-35
30 And Jesus said to him, 'In truth I tell you, this day, this very night, before the cock crows twice, you will have disowned me three times.'
John 13:38 Mark 14:66-72 1Cor 10:12 Gen 1:5 Gen 1:8 Gen 1:13 Gen 1:19
31 But he repeated still more earnestly, 'If I have to die with you, I will never disown you.' And they all said the same.
2Kgs 8:13 Deut 5:27-29 Exod 19:8 Jer 10:23 Jer 17:9 Job 40:4-5 John 13:37
32 They came to a plot of land called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, 'Stay here while I pray.'
Mark 14:36 Mark 14:39 Matt 26:36-46 John 18:1-11 Luke 22:39-46 Ps 18:5-6 Ps 22:1-2
33 Then he took Peter and James and John with him.
Luke 22:44 Mark 5:37 Heb 5:7 Isa 53:10 Mark 1:16-19 Mark 9:2 Matt 26:37-38
34 And he began to feel terror and anguish. And he said to them, 'My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here, and stay awake.'
John 12:27 Mark 13:35-37 1Pet 4:7 1Pet 5:8 Eph 6:18-19 Isa 53:3-4 Isa 53:12
35 And going on a little further he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, this hour might pass him by.
Heb 5:7 Mark 14:41 1Chr 21:15-16 2Chr 7:3 Acts 10:25-26 Deut 9:18 Gen 17:3
36 'Abba, Father!' he said, 'For you everything is possible. Take this cup away from me. But let it be as you, not I, would have it.'
Gal 4:6 John 5:30 Phil 2:8 Heb 5:7-8 John 6:38-39 John 12:27 John 18:11
37 He came back and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, 'Simon, are you asleep? Had you not the strength to stay awake one hour?
2Sam 16:17 Heb 12:3 Luke 9:31-32 Luke 22:45-46 Mark 14:29-31 Mark 14:40-41 Matt 25:5
38 Stay awake and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.'
Matt 26:41 Rom 7:18-25 Luke 21:36 Matt 24:42 Luke 22:40 Luke 22:46 Mark 14:34
39 Again he went away and prayed, saying the same words.
Matt 6:7 Matt 26:42-44 2Cor 12:8 Luke 18:1
40 And once more he came back and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy; and they could find no answer for him.
Gen 44:16 Mark 9:33-34 Rom 3:19
41 He came back a third time and said to them, 'You can sleep on now and have your rest. It is all over. The hour has come. Now the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Mark 9:31 Mark 14:35 1Kgs 18:27 1Kgs 22:15 2Kgs 3:13 Acts 7:52 Eccl 11:9
42 Get up! Let us go! My betrayer is not far away.'
John 18:1-2 Matt 26:46
43 And at once, while he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, came up and with him a number of men armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
Acts 1:16 John 18:3-11 Luke 22:47-53 Matt 26:47-56 Ps 2:1-2 Ps 3:1-2 Ps 22:11-13
44 Now the traitor had arranged a signal with them saying, 'The one I kiss, he is the man. Arrest him, and see he is well guarded when you lead him away.'
1Sam 23:22-23 2Sam 20:9-10 2Thess 3:17 Acts 16:23 Exod 12:13 Josh 2:12 Matt 26:48-50
45 So when the traitor came, he went up to Jesus at once and said, 'Rabbi!' and kissed him.
Isa 1:3 John 13:13-14 John 20:16 Luke 6:46 Mal 1:6 Mark 12:14 Matt 23:7-10
46 The others seized him and arrested him.
Acts 2:23 John 18:12 Judg 16:21 Lam 4:20
47 Then one of the bystanders drew his sword and struck out at the high priest's servant and cut off his ear.
John 18:10-11 Luke 22:49-51 Matt 26:51-54
48 Then Jesus spoke. 'Am I a bandit,' he said, 'that you had to set out to capture me with swords and clubs?
Luke 22:52-53 1Sam 24:14-15 1Sam 26:18 Matt 26:55
49 I was among you teaching in the Temple day after day and you never laid a hand on me. But this is to fulfil the scriptures.'
John 18:20 John 8:2 Dan 9:24-26 Luke 22:37 Luke 24:44-45 Mark 12:35 Matt 1:22
50 And they all deserted him and ran away.
Mark 14:27 John 16:32 Ps 38:11 Ps 88:18 2Tim 4:16 Isa 63:3 Job 19:13-14
51 A young man followed with nothing on but a linen cloth. They caught hold of him,
52 but he left the cloth in their hands and ran away naked.
Mark 13:14-16 Gen 39:12 Job 2:4
53 They led Jesus off to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes assembled there.
Matt 26:57-68 Acts 4:5-6 Isa 53:7 John 18:12-14 John 18:19-24 Luke 22:54-62 Mark 15:1
54 Peter had followed him at a distance, right into the high priest's palace, and was sitting with the attendants warming himself at the fire.
John 18:18 Matt 26:3 1Kgs 19:9 1Kgs 19:13 1Sam 13:7 John 18:15-16 John 18:25
55 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus in order to have him executed. But they could not find any.
1Kgs 21:10 1Kgs 21:13 1Pet 3:16-18 Acts 6:11-13 Acts 24:1-13 Dan 6:4 Matt 5:22
56 Several, indeed, brought false witness against him, but their evidence was conflicting.
57 Some stood up and submitted this false evidence against him,
Matt 26:60-61 Acts 6:13-14 Jer 26:8-9 Jer 26:18 John 2:18-21 Mark 15:29 Matt 27:40
58 'We heard him say, "I am going to destroy this Temple made by human hands, and in three days build another, not made by human hands." '
Heb 9:24 John 2:19 2Cor 5:1 Acts 7:48 Heb 9:11 Mark 15:29 Dan 2:34
59 But even on this point their evidence was conflicting.
60 The high priest then rose before the whole assembly and put this question to Jesus, 'Have you no answer to that? What is this evidence these men are bringing against you?'
John 19:9-10 Mark 15:3-5 Matt 26:62-63
61 But he was silent and made no answer at all. The high priest put a second question to him saying, 'Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?'
Isa 53:7 Mark 15:2 Matt 16:16 Matt 26:63-64 1Pet 2:23 1Tim 1:11 1Tim 6:15
62 'I am,' said Jesus, 'and you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.'
Ps 110:1 Dan 7:13-14 Heb 1:3 Matt 24:30 Mark 13:26 Matt 26:64 Heb 12:2
63 The high priest tore his robes and said, 'What need of witnesses have we now?
Lev 21:10 Matt 26:65 Num 14:6 Acts 14:13-14 Isa 36:22-1 Jer 36:23-24
64 You heard the blasphemy. What is your finding?' Their verdict was unanimous: he deserved to die.
Lev 24:16 1Kgs 21:9-13 John 5:18 John 8:58-59 John 10:31-33 John 19:7 Luke 22:71
65 Some of them started spitting at his face, hitting him and saying, 'Play the prophet!' And the attendants struck him too.
Matt 26:67-68 Acts 23:2 Isa 50:6 John 19:3 Luke 22:63-64 Mark 15:19 Esth 7:8
66 While Peter was down below in the courtyard, one of the high priest's servant-girls came up.
Mark 14:54 John 18:15-18 John 18:25-27 Luke 22:55-62 Matt 26:58 Matt 26:69-75
67 She saw Peter warming himself there, looked closely at him and said, 'You too were with Jesus, the man from Nazareth.'
Mark 14:54 Acts 10:38 John 1:45-49 John 19:19 Mark 1:24 Mark 10:47 Matt 2:23
68 But he denied it. 'I do not know, I do not understand what you are talking about,' he said. And he went out into the forecourt, and a cock crowed.
2Tim 2:12-13 John 13:36-38 Mark 14:29-31 Mark 14:72 Matt 26:71-72
69 The servant-girl saw him and again started telling the bystanders, 'This man is one of them.'
Gal 6:1 John 18:17 John 18:25 Luke 22:58 Mark 14:38
70 But again he denied it. A little later the bystanders themselves said to Peter, 'You are certainly one of them! Why, you are a Galilean.'
Acts 2:7 John 18:26-27 Judg 12:6 Luke 22:59-60 Mark 14:68 Matt 26:73-74
71 But he started cursing and swearing, 'I do not know the man you speak of.'
1Cor 10:12 2Kgs 8:12-15 2Kgs 10:32 Jer 17:9
72 And at once the cock crowed for the second time, and Peter recalled what Jesus had said to him, 'Before the cock crows twice, you will have disowned me three times.' And he burst into tears.
