  还有大半年的时间,各位考生可以利用这段时间认真练习一下英语六级阅读水平,以下是小编为大家准备的英语六级阅读习题:最后的晚餐。

  The Last Dinner 1

  Jesus spent his last few hours of liberty quietly in thesuburb of Bethany. It was the day of Passover. TheJews observed this feast by eating roast lamb andunleavened bread. 2

  Jesus asked his disciples to go to town and reservea room in one of the smaller inns and order a dinnerthat they might all be together.

  When evening came, Judas, looking bland3 and innocent, left the house together with theothers. They went down the Mount of Olives and entered the city and found that everythingwas ready. They took their seats around one long table and began to eat.

  But it was not a cheerful meal. They felt the dread of those coming events which already werecasting their terrible shadow over the small group of faithful friends.

  Jesus spoke very little. The others sat in gloomy silence. At last Peter could stand it nolonger, and he blurted4 out what was in everybody’s mind . “Master, ”he said,“we want toknow. Do you have reason to suspect one of us?” Softly Jesus answered, “ Yes. One amongyou who is now sitting at this table will bring disaster upon us all. ” Then all the disciples got upand crowded around him. They protested their innocence. At that moment Judas slippedquietly out of the room. They now all knew what was to come. They could no longer remain inthat little room. They needed fresh air, and they left the inn and walked out of the gate andwent back to the Mount of Olives and opened the wicket to a garden which a friend had toldthem to use whenever they wished to be alone . It was called Gethsemane5 , after an old oil-press which stood in a corner. After a while Jesus walked away from the little group. But threeof the disciples who were closest to him, followed at a distance.

  He turned around and bade them wait and watch while he prayed.

  The time had come for a final decision. Escape was still possible , but escape would mean asilent confession of guilt and defeat for his ideas.

  He was alone among the silent trees and fought his last great battle . He was a man in thefullness of his years. Life still held a great promise. Death, once his enemies captured him,would come in a most terrible form. He made his choice . He stayed. He went back to hisfriends. And behold! They were fast asleep . A moment later, the whole garden was in anuproar. Led by Judas, the guards of the Sanhedrin rushed upon the prophet. Judas was attheir head. He threw his arms around his master and kissed him. 6 That was the sign for whichthe soldiers had waited. At that moment, Peter realized what was happening.
