14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15and said, What will you give me if I betray him to you? They paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16And from that moment he began to look for an opportunity to betray him.
17 On the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Where do you want us to make the preparations for you to eat the Passover? 18He said, Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, The Teacher says, My time is near; I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples. 19So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover meal.
20 When it was evening, he took his place with the twelve;* 21and while they were eating, he said, Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me. 22And they became greatly distressed and began to say to him one after another, Surely not I, Lord? 23He answered, The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. 24The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that one by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that one not to have been born. 25Judas, who betrayed him, said, Surely not I, Rabbi? He replied, You have said so.
