On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the customary day when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, His disciples wondered where they would celebrate the feast.

Disciples: Where do You want us to go and make preparations for You to eat the Passover meal?

13 So again He sent two of His disciples ahead and told them to watch for a man carrying a jar of water.

Jesus: Follow that man; 14 and wherever he goes in, say to the owner of the house, “The Teacher asks, ‘Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with My disciples?’” 15 He will take you upstairs and show you a large room furnished and ready. Make our preparations there.

16 So the two left and went into the city. All was as Jesus had told them, and they prepared the meal in the upper room. 17 That evening Jesus and the twelve arrived and went into the upper room; 18 and each reclined around the table, leaning upon an elbow as he ate.

Jesus: I tell you in absolute sincerity, one of you eating with Me tonight is going to betray Me.

19 The twelve were upset. They looked around at each other.

Disciples (one by one): Lord, it’s not I, is it?

Jesus: 20 It is one of you, the twelve—one of you who is dipping your bread in the same dish that I am.

21 The Son of Man goes to His fate. That has already been predicted in the Scriptures. But still, it will be terrible for the one who betrays Him. It would have been better for him if he had never been born.

22 As they ate, Jesus took bread, offered a blessing, and broke it. He handed the pieces to His disciples.

Jesus: Take this [and eat it].[a] This is My body.

23 He took a cup of wine; and when He had given thanks for it, He passed it to them, and they all drank from it.

Jesus: 24 This is My blood, a covenant[b] poured out on behalf of many. 25 Truly I will never taste the fruit of the vine again until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
