Bible: Mark 14:43-52
Betrayal and Arrest
14:43 Right away, while Jesus 1 was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, arrived. 2 With him came a crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and experts in the law 3 and elders. 14:44 (Now the betrayer 4 had given them a sign, saying, “The one I kiss is the man. Arrest him and lead him away under guard.”) 5 14:45 When Judas 6 arrived, he went up to Jesus 7 immediately and said, “Rabbi!” and kissed 8 him. 14:46 Then they took hold of him 9 and arrested him. 14:47 One of the bystanders drew his sword and struck the high priest’s slave, 10 cutting off his ear. 14:48 Jesus said to them, “Have you come with swords and clubs to arrest me like you would an outlaw? 11 14:49 Day after day I was with you, teaching in the temple courts, yet 12 you did not arrest me. But this has happened so that 13 the scriptures would be fulfilled.” 14:50 Then 14 all the disciples 15 left him and fled. 14:51 A young man was following him, wearing only a linen cloth. They tried to arrest him, 14:52 but he ran off naked, 16 leaving his linen cloth behind.
