Introduction
1Christ foretells his own death.
3The rulers conspire against him.
6The woman anoints his feet.
14Judas bargains to betray him.
17Christ eats the passover;
26institutes his holy supper;
30foretells the desertion of his disciples, and Peter's denial;
36prays in the garden;
47and being betrayed by a kiss,
57is carried to Caiaphas,
69and denied of Peter.
