Luke 22:1-6 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Judas Betrays Jesus

22 It was almost time for the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover Feast [C celebrating God’s rescue of Israel from Egypt; Ex. 12]. The ·leading [T chief] priests and ·teachers of the law [scribes] were trying to find a way to ·kill [destroy; eliminate] Jesus, ·because [or but] they were afraid of the people [C because of Jesus’ popularity].

[L Then] Satan entered Judas [L who was called] Iscariot, one of ·Jesus’ twelve apostles [L the Twelve]. Judas went to the ·leading [T chief] priests and the officers of the Temple guard and talked to them about a way to ·hand Jesus over [betray Jesus] to them. They were ·pleased [delighted] and agreed to give Judas money. He ·agreed [consented] and watched for ·the best [an opportune] time to ·hand Jesus over [betray Jesus] to them when he was away from the crowd.

On that day the Son of Man will be ·given to his enemies [handed over] to be crucified.”

Then the ·leading [T chief] priests and the elders ·had a meeting [assembled] at the ·palace [court] of the high priest, named Caiaphas. At the meeting, they ·planned [plotted] ·to set a trap [to act secretly/treacherously] to arrest Jesus and kill him. But they said, “We must not do it during the ·feast [Passover festival], because the people might cause a riot.”
