See this passage explained in the notes at Matthew. 26:20-35.

And in the evening he cometh with the twelve. In the afternoon, as it is very reasonable to suppose, Christ set out from Bethany with the rest of the twelve, with the other nine, and came to Jerusalem; where they were joined by Judas, who had covenanted with the chief priests to betray him, and by Peter and John, who had been sent before to prepare the passover; and when it was night, when the second evening had took place, he went with all twelve of them to the house, where the provision to eat the passover together was made for them; See Gill on Matthew 26:20.

In the evening he cometh. On the Lord's last passover see notes on Matthew 26:21-25. Compare Luke 22:21-23; John 13:21-35. See also notes on John.
