1 Now the festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was near.
2 The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to put Jesus to death,
for they were afraid of the people.
3 Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was one of the twelve;
4 he went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers of the temple police
about how he might betray him to them.
5 They were greatly pleased and agreed to give him money.
6 So he consented and began to look for an opportunity
to betray him to them when no crowd was present.
7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread,
on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 So Jesus sent Peter and John, saying,
“Go and prepare the Passover meal for us that we may eat it.”
9 They asked him, “Where do you want us to make preparations for it?”
10 “Listen,” he said to them,
“when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you;
follow him into the house he enters 11 and say to the owner of the house,
“The teacher asks you, “Where is the guest room,
where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?” ‘
12 He will show you a large room upstairs, already furnished.
Make preparations for us there.”
13 So they went and found everything as he had told them;
and they prepared the Passover meal.
