Latin Gospel Passion Narratives: Luke 1

Here is the text taken from the Evangelium secundum Lucam. Scroll down the page for a segmented version of the text, with some grammar notes to help you in your reading.

22:1-13 Appropinquabat autem dies festus Azymorum, qui dicitur Pascha. Et quaerebant principes sacerdotum et scribae quomodo eum interficerent; timebant vero plebem. Intravit autem Satanas in Iudam, qui cognominabatur Iscarioth, unum de Duodecim; et abiit et locutus est cum principibus sacerdotum et magistratibus, quemadmodum illum traderet eis. Et gavisi sunt et pacti sunt pecuniam illi dare. Et spopondit et quaerebat opportunitatem, ut eis traderet illum sine turba. Venit autem dies Azymorum, in qua necesse erat occidi Pascha. Et misit Petrum et Ioannem dicens: "Euntes parate nobis Pascha, ut manducemus." At illi dixerunt ei: "Ubi vis paremus?" Et dixit ad eos: "Ecce, introeuntibus vobis in civitatem, occurret vobis homo amphoram aquae portans; sequimini eum in domum, in quam intrat. Et dicetis patri familias domus: "Dicit tibi Magister: Ubi est deversorium, ubi Pascha cum discipulis meis manducem?" Ipse vobis ostendet cenaculum magnum stratum; ibi parate." Euntes autem invenerunt, sicut dixit illis, et paraverunt Pascha.
