April 11 - Luke 22.1-30
The Plot against Jesus
Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
Jesus Prepares to Eat the Passover Meal
9"Where do you want us to get it ready?" they asked him.
10He answered, "As you go into the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he enters, 11and say to the owner of the house: 'The Teacher says to you, Where is the room where my disciples and I will eat the Passover meal?' 12He will show you a large furnished room upstairs, where you will get everything ready."
13They went off and found everything just as Jesus had told them, and they prepared the Passover meal.
The Lord's Supper
17Then Jesus took a cup, gave thanks to God, and said, "Take this and share it among yourselves. 18I tell you that from now on I will not drink this wine until the Kingdom of God comes."
19Then he took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in memory of me." 20In the same way, he gave them the cup after the supper, saying, "This cup is God's new covenant sealed with my blood, which is poured out for you.
21"But, look! The one who betrays me is here at the table with me! 22The Son of Man will die as God has decided, but how terrible for that man who betrays him!"
23Then they began to ask among themselves which one of them it could be who was going to do this.
The Argument about Greatness24An argument broke out among the disciples as to which one of them should be thought of as the greatest. 25Jesus said to them, "The kings of the pagans have power over their people, and the rulers claim the title 'Friends of the People.' 26But this is not the way it is with you; rather, the greatest one among you must be like the youngest, and the leader must be like the servant. 27Who is greater, the one who sits down to eat or the one who serves? The one who sits down, of course. But I am among you as one who serves.
28"You have stayed with me all through my trials; 29and just as my Father has given me the right to rule, so I will give you the same right. 30You will eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and you will sit on thrones to rule over the twelve tribes of Israel.
