Luke Chapter 22 (Index)

Chapters: 1
























001  Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

002  And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

003  Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

004  And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

005  And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

006  And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

007  Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

008  And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

009  And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

010  And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

011  And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

012  And he shall show you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

013  And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

014  And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

015  And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

016  For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

017  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

018  For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

019  And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

020  Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

021  But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

022  And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

023  And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

024  And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

025  And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

026  But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

027  For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

028  Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

029  And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

030  That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

031  And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

032  But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

033  And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

034  And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

035  And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

036  Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

037  For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

038  And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

039  And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

040  And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

041  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

042  Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

043  And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

044  And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

045  And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

046  And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

047  And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

048  But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

049  When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

050  And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

051  And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

052  Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

053  When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

054  Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.

055  And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

056  But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

057  And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

058  And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

059  And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

060  And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

061  And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

062  And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

063  And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

064  And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

065  And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

066  And 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,

067  Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

068  And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

069  Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

070  Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

071  And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
