Luke Chapter 22

Luke 22:1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew close, which is called the Passover.

Luke 22:2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might murder Him; for they feared the people.

Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being one of the twelve.

Luke 22:4 And he went his way, and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them.

Luke 22:5 So they were glad, and promised to give him money.

Luke 22:6 And he agreed, and sought opportunity to betray Him to them in the absence of the multitude.

Luke 22:7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed.

Luke 22:8 And He sent Peter and John, saying, go and prepare us the Passover that we may eat.

Luke 22:9 And they said to Him, where do You want us to prepare it?

Luke 22:10 Then He said to them, behold, when you have entered into the city, there will a man meet you, carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he enters in.

Luke 22:11 And you will say to the master of the house, the Master says to you, where is the guest chamber, where I will eat the Passover with My disciples?

Luke 22:12 Then he will show you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

Luke 22:13 And they went, and found as He had said to them: and they made ready the Passover.

Luke 22:14 When the hour came, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him.

Luke 22:15 Then He said to them, with earnest desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:

Luke 22:16 for I say to you, I will not anymore eat of it, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

Luke 22:17 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, take this, and divide it among yourselves:

Luke 22:18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God has come.

Luke 22:19 And He took bread, and gave thanks, and broke it, and gave to them, and said, this is My body which is given for you: do this in remembrance of Me.

Luke 22:20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

Luke 22:21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrays Me is with Me on the table.

Luke 22:22 And truly the Son of man goes, as it was determined: But woe to that man by who He is betrayed!

Luke 22:23 Then they began to inquire among themselves, whom of them it was that was about to do this thing.

Luke 22:24 For there was also a strife among them, whom of them should be accounted the greatest.

Luke 22:25 And He said to them, the rulers of the nations exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority on them are called benefactors.

Luke 22:26 But you will not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is leading, as he that does serve.

Luke 22:27 For which is greater, he that sits at the table, or he that serves? Is not he that sits at the table? But I am among you as One that serves.

Luke 22:28 You are they who have continued with Me in My temptations.

Luke 22:29 And I appoint to you a kingdom, as My Father has appointed to Me;

Luke 22:30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith fail not: and when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.

Luke 22:33 But he said to Him, Lord, I am ready to go with You, both into prison, and to death.

Luke 22:34 And He said, I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, before that you will deny Me three times that you do not know Me.

Luke 22:35 Then He said to them, when I sent you without money bag, and pack, and sandals, lacked you anything? And they said nothing.

Luke 22:36 Then He said to them, but now, he that has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise his pack: and he that has no sword, let him sell his cloak, and buy one.

Luke 22:37 For I say to you, that which is written must yet be fulfilled in Me, and He was counted among the lawless: for the things concerning Me have a goal.

Luke 22:38 So they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And He said to them, it is enough.

Luke 22:39 And He came out, and went, as He was accustomed, to the Mount of Olives; and His disciples also followed Him.

Luke 22:40 When He was at the place, He said to them, pray that you enter not into temptation.

Luke 22:41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

Luke 22:42 and said, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.

Luke 22:43 Then there appeared an angel to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

Luke 22:44 And being in agony He prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Luke 22:45 When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping for sorrow,

Luke 22:46 Then said to them, why sleep you? Rise and pray, unless you enter into temptation.

Luke 22:47 While He yet spoke, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him.

Luke 22:48 But Jesus said to him, Judas, do you betray the Son of man with a kiss?

Luke 22:49 When they who were about him saw what would follow, they said to Him, Lord, will we strike with the sword?

Luke 22:50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

Luke 22:51 But Jesus answered and said, no more of this! And He touched his ear, and healed him.

Luke 22:52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, who had come to Him, be you come out, as against a thief, with swords and clubs?

Luke 22:53 When I was with you each day in the temple, you stretched out no hand against Me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Luke 22:54 Then they took Him, and led Him, and brought Him into the high priest’s house. But Peter followed far off.

Luke 22:55 When they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and had sat down together, Peter sat down among them.

Luke 22:56 A certain servant girl beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked on him, and said, this man was also with Him.

Luke 22:57 But he denied Him, saying, Woman, I know Him not.

Luke 22:58 After a little while another saw him, and said, You are also of them. And Peter said, man, I am not.

Luke 22:59 And after about one hour had passed, another one insisted, and said, truly this fellow was also with Him: for he is a Galilean.

Luke 22:60 Then Peter said, man, I do not know what you say. Immediately, while he yet spoke, the rooster crowed.

Luke 22:61 Then the Lord turned, and looked on Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to Him, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.

Luke 22:62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

Luke 22:63 So the men that held Jesus mocked Him and struck Him.

Luke 22:64 When they had blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face, and asked Him, and said, prophesy, who is it that struck You?

Luke 22:65 For many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.

Luke 22:66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led Him into their council, saying,

Luke 22:67 are You the Christ? Tell us. And He said to them, if I tell you, you will not believe:

Luke 22:68 and if I also ask you, you will not answer Me, nor let Me go.

Luke 22:69 After this will the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

Luke 22:70 Then said they all, Are you then the Son of God? And He said to them, you say that I am.

Luke 22:71 So they said, what need do we have of any further witness? For we ourselves have heard of His own mouth.
