Luke 22:20-38

20ŒæIn the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, äóìThis cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.Œæ21ŒæBut the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22ŒæThe Son of Man will go as it has been decreed. But woe to that man who betrays him!äó 23ŒæThey began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this. 24ŒæA dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25ŒæJesus said to them, äóìThe kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26ŒæBut you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27ŒæFor who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. 28ŒæYou are those who have stood by me in my trials. 29ŒæAnd I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, 30Œæso that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 31ŒæäóìSimon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32ŒæBut I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.äó 33ŒæBut he replied, äóìLord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.äó 34ŒæJesus answered, äóìI tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.äó 35ŒæThen Jesus asked them, äóìWhen I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?äó äóìNothing,äó they answered. 36ŒæHe said to them, äóìBut now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you donäó»t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37ŒæIt is written: äóÖAnd he was numbered with the transgressorsäó»; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.äó 38ŒæThe disciples said, äóìSee, Lord, here are two swords.äó äóìThatäó»s enough!äó he replied.
