A Plot To Kill Jesus
(Matthew 26.1-5; Luke 22.1,2; John 11.45-53)
1 It was now two days before Passover and the Festival of Thin Bread. The chief priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses were planning how they could sneak around and have Jesus arrested and put to death.
14.1 Ex 12.1
14 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
2 They were saying, “We must not do it during the festival, because the people will riot.” 2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
At Bethany
(Matthew 26.6-13; John 12.1-8)
3 Jesus was eating in Bethany at the home of Simon, who once had leprosy,
h 14.3 leprosy: In biblical times the word “leprosy” was used for many different skin diseases.
when a woman came in with a very expensive bottle of sweet-smelling perfume.
i 14.3 sweet-smelling perfume: The Greek text has “perfume made of pure spikenard,” a plant used to make perfume.
After breaking it open, she poured the perfume on Jesus' head.
14.3 Lk 7.37
3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.
spikenard: or, pure nard, or, liquid nard
4 This made some of the guests angry, and they complained, “Why such a waste? 4 And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
5 We could have sold this perfume for more than three hundred silver coins and given the money to the poor!” So they started saying cruel things to the woman. 5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
6 But Jesus said:
Leave her alone! Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing for me.
6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
7 You will always have the poor with you. And whenever you want to, you can give to them. But you won't always have me here with you.
14.7 Dt 15.11.
7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
8 She has done all she could by pouring perfume on my body to prepare it for burial. 8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
9 You may be sure that wherever the good news is told all over the world, people will remember what she has done. And they will tell others. 9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
Judas and the Chief Priests
(Matthew 26.14-16; Luke 22.3-6)
10 Judas Iscariot
j 14.10 Iscariot: See the note at 3.19.
was one of the twelve disciples. He went to the chief priests and offered to help them arrest Jesus.
10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
11 They were glad to hear this, and they promised to pay him. So Judas started looking for a good chance to betray Jesus. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.
Jesus Eats with His Disciples
(Matthew 26.17-25; Luke 22.7-14,21-23; John 13.21-30)
12 It was the first day of the Festival of Thin Bread, and the Passover lambs were being killed. Jesus' disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to prepare the Passover meal?”
12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
killed: or, sacrificed
13 Jesus said to two of the disciples, “Go into the city, where you will meet a man carrying a jar of water.
k 14.13 a man carrying a jar of water: A male slave carrying water could mean that the family was rich.
Follow him,
13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.
14 and when he goes into a house, say to the owner, ‘Our teacher wants to know if you have a room where he can eat the Passover meal with his disciples.’ 14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
15 The owner will take you upstairs and show you a large room furnished and ready for you to use. Prepare the meal there.” 15 And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
16 The two disciples went into the city and found everything just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover meal.
16 And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
17-18 While Jesus and the twelve disciples were eating together that evening, he said, “The one who will betray me is now eating with me.”
14.17,18 Ps 41.9.
17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
19 This made the disciples sad, and one after another they said to Jesus, “You surely don't mean me!”
19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is it I?
20 He answered, “It is one of you twelve men who is eating from this dish with me.
20 And he answered and said unto them, It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
21 The Son of Man will die, just as the Scriptures say. But it is going to be terrible for the one who betrays me. That man would be better off if he had never been born.” 21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
The Lord's Supper
(Matthew 26.26-30; Luke 22.14-23; 1 Corinthians 11.23-25)
22 During the meal Jesus took some bread in his hands. He blessed the bread and broke it. Then he gave it to his disciples and said, “Take this. It is my body.”
22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
23 Jesus picked up a cup of wine and gave thanks to God. He gave it to his disciples, and they all drank some.
23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
24 Then he said, “This is my blood, which is poured out for many people, and with it God makes his agreement.
14.24 a Ex 24.8; b Jr 31.31
24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
25 From now on I will not drink any wine, until I drink new wine in God's kingdom.” 25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. 26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Peter's Promise
(Matthew 26.31-35; Luke 22.31-34; John 13.36-38)
27 Jesus said to his disciples, “All of you will reject me, as the Scriptures say,
14.27 Zec 13.7.

‘I will strike down
the shepherd,
and the sheep
will be scattered.’
27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
offended: or, scandalized, or, shall stumble

28 But after I am raised to life, I will go ahead of you to Galilee.”
14.28 Mt 28.16.
28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
29 Peter spoke up, “Even if all the others reject you, I never will!”
29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
30 Jesus replied, “This very night before a rooster crows twice, you will say three times that you don't know me.”
30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
31 But Peter was so sure of himself that he said, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never say that I don't know you!”
All the others said the same thing.
31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
Jesus Prays
(Matthew 26.36-46; Luke 22.39-46)
32 Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he told them, “Sit here while I pray.”
32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
33 Jesus took along Peter, James, and John. He was sad and troubled and
33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
34 told them, “I am so sad that I feel as if I am dying. Stay here and keep awake with me.” 34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
35-36 Jesus walked on a little way. Then he knelt down on the ground and prayed, “Father,
l 14.35,36 Father: The Greek text has “Abba,” which is an Aramaic word meaning “father.”
if it is possible, don't let this happen to me! Father, you can do anything. Don't make me suffer by having me drink from this cup.
m 14.35,36 by having me drink from this cup: See the note at 10.38.
But do what you want, and not what I want.”
35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
37 When Jesus came back and found the disciples sleeping, he said to Simon Peter, “Are you asleep? Can't you stay awake for just one hour?
37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
38 Stay awake and pray that you won't be tested. You want to do what is right, but you are weak.” 38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
39 Jesus went back and prayed the same prayer.
39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
40 But when he returned to the disciples, he found them sleeping again. They simply could not keep their eyes open, and they did not know what to say. 40 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
41 When Jesus returned to the disciples the third time, he said, “Are you still sleeping and resting?
n 14.41 Are you still sleeping and resting?: Or “You may as well keep on sleeping and resting.”
Enough of that! The time has come for the Son of Man to be handed over to sinners.
41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
42 Get up! Let's go. The one who will betray me is already here.” 42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
Jesus Is Arrested
(Matthew 26.47-56; Luke 22.47-53; John 18.3-12)
43 Jesus was still speaking, when Judas the betrayer came up. He was one of the twelve disciples, and a mob of men armed with swords and clubs were with him. They had been sent by the chief priests, the nation's leaders, and the teachers of the Law of Moses.
43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
44 Judas had told them ahead of time, “Arrest the man I greet with a kiss.
o 14.44 greet with a kiss: It was the custom for people to greet each other with a kiss on the cheek.
Tie him up tight and lead him away.”
44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
45 Judas walked right up to Jesus and said, “Teacher!” Then Judas kissed him,
45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
46 and the men grabbed Jesus and arrested him. 46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
47 Someone standing there pulled out a sword. He struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his ear.
47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
48 Jesus said to the mob, “Why do you come with swords and clubs to arrest me like a criminal?
48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
49 Day after day I was with you and taught in the temple, and you didn't arrest me. But what the Scriptures say must come true.”
14.49 Lk 19.47; 21.37.
49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
50 All of Jesus' disciples ran off and left him.
50 And they all forsook him, and fled.
51 One of them was a young man who was wearing only a linen cloth. And when the men grabbed him, 51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
52 he left the cloth behind and ran away naked. 52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
Jesus Is Questioned by the Council
(Matthew 26.57-68; Luke 22.54,55,63-71; John 18.13,14,19-24)
53 Jesus was led off to the high priest. Then the chief priests, the nation's leaders, and the teachers of the Law of Moses all met together.
53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
54 Peter had followed at a distance. And when he reached the courtyard of the high priest's house, he sat down with the guards to warm himself beside a fire. 54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
55 The chief priests and the whole council tried to find someone to accuse Jesus of a crime, so they could put him to death. But they could not find anyone to accuse him.
55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
56 Many people did tell lies against Jesus, but they did not agree on what they said. 56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
57 Finally, some men stood up and lied about him. They said, 57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
58 “We heard him say he would tear down this temple that we built. He also claimed that in three days he would build another one without any help.”
14.58 Jn 2.19.
58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
59 But even then they did not agree on what they said. 59 But neither so did their witness agree together.
60 The high priest stood up in the council and asked Jesus, “Why don't you say something in your own defense? Don't you hear the charges they are making against you?”
60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
61 But Jesus kept quiet and did not say a word. The high priest asked him another question, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the glorious God?”
p 14.61 Son of the glorious God: “Son of God” was one of the titles used for the kings of Israel.
61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
62 “Yes, I am!” Jesus answered.
14.62 Dn 7.13.

“Soon you will see
the Son of Man
sitting at the right side
q 14.62 right side: See the note at 12.36.
of God All-Powerful,
and coming with the clouds
of heaven.”
62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

63 At once the high priest ripped his robe apart and shouted, “Why do we need more witnesses?
63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
64 You heard him claim to be God! What is your decision?” They all agreed that he should be put to death.
14.64 Lv 24.15
64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
65 Some of the people started spitting on Jesus. They blindfolded him, hit him with their fists, and said, “Tell us who hit you!” Then the guards took charge of Jesus and beat him.
65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
Peter Says He Doesn't Know Jesus
(Matthew 26.69-75; Luke 22.56-62; John 18.15-18,25-27)
66 While Peter was still in the courtyard, a servant girl of the high priest came up
66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
67 and saw Peter warming himself by the fire. She stared at him and said, “You were with Jesus from Nazareth!” 67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
68 Peter replied, “That isn't true! I don't know what you're talking about. I don't have any idea what you mean.” He went out to the gate, and a rooster crowed.
r 14.68 a rooster crowed: These words are not in some manuscripts.
68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
69 The servant girl saw Peter again and said to the people standing there, “This man is one of them!”
69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
70 “No, I'm not!” Peter replied.
A little while later some of the people said to Peter, “You certainly are one of them. You're a Galilean!”
70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
71 This time Peter began to curse and swear, “I don't even know the man you're talking about!”
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
72 Right away the rooster crowed a second time. Then Peter remembered that Jesus had told him, “Before a rooster crows twice, you will say three times that you don't know me.” So Peter started crying.
72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
when...: or, he wept abundantly, or, he began to weep
