    2. 2. Mark 14:18-28 <ul><li>18 While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, &quot;I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.&quot; 19 They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, &quot;Surely not I?&quot; 20 &quot;It is one of the Twelve,&quot; he replied, &quot;one who dips bread into the bowl with me. 21 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.&quot; 22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, &quot;Take it; this is my body.&quot; 23 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 &quot;This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,&quot; he said to them. 25 &quot;I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God.&quot; 27 &quot;You will all fall away,&quot; Jesus told them, &quot;for it is written: &quot; 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.' 28 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.&quot; </li></ul>
