17On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and said, "Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover meal?" 18He replied, "Go into the city, to a certain man, and say, ‘The teacher says, "My time is near. I’m going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house." ’" 19The disciples did just as Jesus instructed them. They prepared the Passover. 20That evening he took his place at the table with the twelve disciples. 21As they were eating he said, "I assure you that one of you will betray me." 22Deeply saddened, each one said to him, "I’m not the one, am I, Lord?" 23He replied, "The one who will betray me is the one who dips his hand with me into this bowl. 24 The Human One#Or Son of Man goes to his death just as it is written about him. But how terrible it is for that person who betrays the Human One!#Or Son of Man It would have been better for him if he had never been born." 25Now Judas, who would betray him, replied, "It’s not me, is it, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "You said it." 26While they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take and eat. This is my body." 27He took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from this, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many so that their sins may be forgiven. 29 I tell you, I won’t drink wine again until that day when I drink it in a new way with you in my Father’s kingdom." 30Then, after singing songs of praise, they went to the Mount of Olives.
