The Holy Gospel According to Matthew    26: 14-25

26:14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the leaders of the priests,
26:15 and he said to them, “What are you willing to give me, if I hand him over to you?” So they appointed thirty pieces of silver for him.
26:16 And from then on, he sought an opportunity to betray him.
26:17 Then, on the first day of Unleavened Bread, the disciples approached Jesus, saying, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?”
26:18 So Jesus said, “Go into the city, to a certain one, and say to him: ‘The Teacher said: My time is near. I am observing the Passover with you, along with my disciples.’ ”
26:19 And the disciples did just as Jesus appointed to them. And they prepared the Passover.
26:20 Then, when evening arrived, he sat at table with his twelve disciples.
26:21 And while they were eating, he said: “Amen I say to you, that one of you is about to betray me.”
26:22 And being greatly saddened, each one of them began to say, “Surely, it is not I, Lord?”
26:23 But he responded by saying: “He who dips his hand with me into the dish, the same will betray me.
26:24 Indeed, the Son of man goes, just as it has been written about him. But woe to that man by whom the Son of man will be betrayed. It would be better for that man if he had not been born.”
26:25 Then Judas, who betrayed him, responded by saying, “Surely, it is not I, Master?” He said to him, “You have said it.”
