He sat down with the twelve, and as they did eat he said,"Verily I say unto you, that one of you will betray me."
     And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him,
Lord, is it I?
   And he answered and said, "He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed ! it had been good for that man if he had not been born."
   Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, master, is it I? He answered unto him. "Thou hast said."
   And as they were eating, Jesus took bread and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you: this do in rememberance of me." And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them saying, 'Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom."
   And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Matthew 26:26-30 Luke: 2:-17-20
