Bible: John 18:1-12
Betrayal and Arrest
18:1 When he had said these things, 1 Jesus went out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley. 2 There was an orchard 3 there, and he and his disciples went into it. 18:2 (Now Judas, the one who betrayed him, knew the place too, because Jesus had met there many times 4 with his disciples.) 5 18:3 So Judas obtained a squad of soldiers 6 and some officers of the chief priests and Pharisees. 7 They came to the orchard 8 with lanterns 9 and torches and weapons.
18:4 Then Jesus, because he knew everything that was going to happen to him, 10 came and asked them, “Who are you looking for?” 11 18:5 They replied, 12 “Jesus the Nazarene.” He told them, “I am he.” (Now Judas, the one who betrayed him, was standing there with them.) 13 18:6 So when Jesus 14 said to them, “I am he,” they retreated 15 and fell to the ground. 16 18:7 Then Jesus 17 asked them again, “Who are you looking for?” And they said, “Jesus the Nazarene.” 18:8 Jesus replied, 18 “I told you that I am he. If you are looking for 19 me, let these men 20 go.” 21 18:9 He said this 22 to fulfill the word he had spoken, 23 “I have not lost a single one of those whom you gave me.” 24
18:10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, pulled it out and struck the high priest’s slave, 25 cutting off his right ear. 26 (Now the slave’s name was Malchus.) 27 18:11 But Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword back into its sheath! Am I not to drink the cup that the Father has given me?” 28
