Mark 14:12-21

Jesus eats his last meal with his 12 apostles

12 The first day of the festival when the Jews eat flat bread arrived. On this day, each family kills a young sheep for the Passover meal. Jesus' disciples said to him, ‘We will go to prepare the Passover meal for you. Where do you want us to do that?’

13 So Jesus sent two disciples to prepare the meal. ‘Go into the city,’ he said to them. ‘A man, who is carrying a jar of water, will meet you. Follow him. 14 He will go to a house. You must say to the master of that house, “The Teacher sends this message to you: ‘Where is the room for visitors? I will eat the Passover meal there with my disciples.’ ” 15 Then the man will show you a large room upstairs. The room will have in it all the things that you will need. You should prepare the Passover meal for us there.’

16 Then the two disciples left and they went into the city. They found everything as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover meal there.

17 When it was evening, Jesus arrived with the 12 apostles. 18 While they were eating the meal, Jesus said, ‘I tell you this: One of you will help the Jewish leaders to take hold of me. It is someone who is eating this meal with me.’

19 The disciples became very sad. Each one of them said to Jesus, ‘Surely you do not mean me, do you?’

20 Jesus said to them, ‘It is one of you 12 apostles. That man is eating from the same dish as I am. 21 The Son of Man must die in the way that the Bible says. But it will be very bad for the man who gives me to my enemies. It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.’

14:20There was a dish on the table with some food in it. They were all putting their bread into the same dish to pick up the food.
