one When Jesus finished all these words, he said to his disciples:
2 you know that in two days there will be Easter, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to be crucified.
3 Then the high priests and scribes and elders of the people gathered in the court of the high priest, named Caiaphas,
4 and they laid in the council to take Jesus by cunning and kill;
5 but they said: only not on a holiday, so as not to provoke indignation among the people.

6 When Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
7 a woman with an Alavastra vessel of the precious world came to Him and poured Him on the head of a reclining person.
8 Seeing this, his disciples were displeased and said: why such a waste?
nine For one could sell this world for a great price and give it to the poor.
10 But Jesus, having understood this, said to them: Why are you embarrassing a woman? she has done a good deed for me:
eleven for you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me;
12 having poured this world upon My body, she prepared Me for burial;
thirteen Verily I say unto you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, it will be said in memory of her and of what she did.

14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the high priests
fifteen and said: what will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? They offered him thirty pieces of silver;
sixteen and from that time he sought an opportunity to betray Him.

17 On the very first day of unleavened bread, the disciples approached Jesus and said to him: Where do you command us to prepare your Passover?
eighteen He said: go to the city to such and such and say to him: Teacher says: My time is near; I will have Easter with my disciples.
nineteen The disciples did as Jesus commanded them, and prepared the Passover.
twenty When evening came, he lay down with the twelve disciples;
21 and when they ate, he said: Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray Me.
22 They were very saddened, and began to tell Him, each of them: is it me, Lord?
23 But he answered and said, He that dipped his hand in the dish with me, this one will betray me;
24 by the way, the Son of Man comes, as it is written about Him, but woe to the man to whom the Son of Man indulges: it would be better for this person not to be born.
25 And Judah, the one who betrayed him, said: Am I not Rabbi? [Jesus] says to him: you said.

26 And when they ate, Jesus took the bread and, having blessed, broke it and, distributing to the disciples, said: take, eat: this is My Body.
27 And taking the cup and thanking, he handed it to them and said: drink everything from it,
28 for this is My Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
29th I tell you that from now on I will not drink from this fruit of this vine until the day when I will drink new [wine] with you in the Kingdom of My Father.
thirty And, chanting, they went to the Mount of Olives.

31 Then Jesus said to them: all of you will be tempted about Me this night, for it is written: I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the herd will be scattered;
32 after My resurrection, I will come before you in Galilee.
33 Peter answered him: if everyone is tempted about you, I will never be tempted.
34 Jesus said to him: Verily I say unto you, that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me thrice.
35 Peter tells him: at least it was proper for me to die with you, I will not deny you. All students said the same thing.

36 Then Jesus comes with them to a place called Gethsemane, and says to the disciples: Sit here, while I go, pray there.
37 And taking Peter and the two sons of Zebedee with Him, he began to grieve and yearn.
38 Then Jesus said to them: My soul mourneth mortally; Stay here and watch with Me.
39 And going away a little, fell on his face, prayed and said: My Father! if possible, let this cup pass from me; but not as I want, but as you.
40 And he comes to the disciples and finds them sleeping, and says to Peter: Could you not be awake with Me for one hour?
41 Watch and pray, so as not to fall into temptation: the spirit is alert, but the flesh is weak.
42 Still, having departed another time, he prayed, saying: My Father! if this cup cannot pass Me, lest I drink it, Thy will be done.
43 And having come, he finds them sleeping again, for their eyes are heavy.
44 And having left them, he went away again and prayed a third time, saying the same word.
45 Then he comes to his disciples and says to them: are you still sleeping and resting? behold, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners;
46 Rise, let’s go: behold, the one who betrayed Me has come near.

47 And while He was still speaking, Judah, one of the twelve, came, and with him a multitude of people with swords and stakes, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
48 But he who betrayed him gave them a sign, saying: Whom I kiss, he is, take him.
49 And immediately approaching Jesus, he said: Rejoice, Rabbi! And he kissed him.
fifty Jesus said to him: friend, why have you come? Then they came and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
51 And so, one of those with Jesus stretched out his hand, drew his sword, and, striking the slave of the high priest, cut off his ear.
52 Then Jesus said to him: return your sword to its place, for all who take the sword will perish with the sword;
53 or do you think that I can’t beg my Father now, and He will present Me more than the twelve legions of Angels?
54 how come the scriptures come true that it should be so?
55 At that hour, Jesus said to the people: as if you came out to the robber with swords and stakes to take Me; every day I sat with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not take Me.
56 But this was all, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples, leaving Him, fled.

57 And those who took Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and elders gathered.
58 Peter followed him from afar, to the court of the high priest; and going inside, he sat down with the attendants to see the end.
59 The high priests and elders and the entire Sanhedrin sought perjury against Jesus to put him to death,
60 and did not find; and although many false witnesses came, they did not find. But finally two false witnesses came
61 and said: He said: I can destroy the temple of God and create it in three days.
62 And, having risen, the high priest said to Him: [what] do not answer anything? what do they testify against you?
63 Jesus was silent. And the high priest said to him: I curse you with the living God, tell us, Are you the Christ, the Son of God?
64 Jesus says to him: you said; I’m even telling you: from now on, behold the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.
65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said: He is blaspheming! what else do we have witnesses for? now, now you heard His blasphemy!
66 what do you think? They answered and said: guilty of death.
67 Then they spat on His face and strangled Him; others struck him at the Lanites
68 and they said: Prophesy unto us, Christ, who struck thee?

69 Peter was sitting outside in the yard. And a servant girl came up to him and said: And you were with Jesus of Galilee.
70 But he disowned everyone, saying: I do not know what you are saying.
71 When he went out of the gate, another saw him and said to those who were there: this one was with Jesus of Nazareth.
72 And he again denied with an oath that he did not know this man.
73 A little later, those who stood there approached and said to Peter: you are exactly one of them, for your speech also convicts you.
74 Then he began to swear and swear that he did not know this man. And suddenly a rooster began to sing.
75 And Peter remembered the word Jesus said to him: before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times. And going out, wept bitterly.
