Bible: Luke 22:47-62

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!

Jesus’ Condemnation and Peter’s Denials

22:54 Then 21  they arrested 22  Jesus, 23  led him away, and brought him into the high priest’s house. 24  But Peter was following at a distance. 22:55 When they had made a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. 22:56 Then a slave girl, 25  seeing him as he sat in the firelight, stared at him and said, “This man was with him too! 22:57 But Peter 26  denied it: “Woman, 27  I don’t know 28  him! 22:58 Then 29  a little later someone else 30  saw him and said, “You are one of them too.” But Peter said, “Man, 31  I am not! 22:59 And after about an hour still another insisted, 32  “Certainly this man was with him, because he too is a Galilean.” 33  22:60 But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” At that moment, 34  while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 35  22:61 Then 36  the Lord turned and looked straight at Peter, and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, 37  how he had said to him, “Before a rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.” 22:62 And he went outside and wept bitterly. 38
