Luke - Chapter 22
2 and the chief priests and the scribes were looking for some way of doing away with him, because they were afraid of the people.
3 Then Satan entered into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was one of the Twelve.
4 He approached the chief priests and the officers of the guard to discuss some way of handing Jesus over to them.
7 The day of Unleavened Bread came round, on which the Passover had to be sacrificed,
11 and tell the owner of the house, "The Master says this to you: Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?"
15 And he said to them, 'I have ardently longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;
18 because from now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the kingdom of God comes.'
21 'But look, here with me on the table is the hand of the man who is betraying me.
31 'Simon, Simon! Look, Satan has got his wish to sift you all like wheat;
32 but I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail, and once you have recovered, you in your turn must strengthen your brothers.'
37 because I tell you these words of scripture are destined to be fulfilled in me: He was counted as one of the rebellious. Yes, what it says about me is even now reaching its fulfilment.'
42 'Father,' he said, 'if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.'
45 When he rose from prayer he went to the disciples and found them sleeping for sheer grief.
48 Jesus said, 'Judas, are you betraying the Son of man with a kiss?'
50 And one of them struck the high priest's servant and cut off his right ear.
51 But at this Jesus said, 'That is enough.' And touching the man's ear he healed him.
53 When I was among you in the Temple day after day you never made a move to lay hands on me. But this is your hour; this is the reign of darkness.'
56 and as he was sitting there by the blaze a servant-girl saw him, peered at him, and said, 'This man was with him too.'
59 About an hour later another man insisted, saying, 'This fellow was certainly with him. Why, he is a Galilean.'
63 Meanwhile the men who guarded Jesus were mocking and beating him.
67 and they said to him, 'If you are the Christ, tell us.' He replied, 'If I tell you, you will not believe,
68 and if I question you, you will not answer.
70 They all said, 'So you are the Son of God then?' He answered, 'It is you who say I am.'
