Bible: Luke 22:47-53

Betrayal and Arrest

22:47 While he was still speaking, suddenly a crowd appeared, 1  and the man named Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He walked up 2  to Jesus to kiss him. 3  22:48 But Jesus said to him, “Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss? 4  22:49 When 5  those who were around him saw what was about to happen, they said, “Lord, should 6  we use our swords? 7  22:50 Then 8  one of them 9  struck the high priest’s slave, 10  cutting off his right ear. 22:51 But Jesus said, 11 Enough of this!” And he touched the man’s 12  ear and healed 13  him. 22:52 Then 14  Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, 15  and the elders who had come out to get him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs like you would against an outlaw? 16  22:53 Day after day when I was with you in the temple courts, 17  you did not arrest me. 18  But this is your hour, 19  and that of the power 20  of darkness!
