Judas’s Betrayal of Jesus

43 While(A) he was still speaking, Judas,(B) one of the Twelve,(C) suddenly arrived. With him was a mob, with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, the scribes,(D) and the elders.(E) 44 His betrayer had given them a signal. “The one I kiss,” he said, “he’s the one; arrest him and take him away under guard.” 45 So when he came, immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Rabbi!” (F) and kissed him. 46 They took hold of him and arrested him. 47 One of those who stood by drew his sword, struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his ear.

48 Jesus said to them, “Have you come out with swords and clubs, as if I were a criminal,[a] to capture me? 49 Every day I was among you, teaching in the temple,(G) and you didn’t arrest me. But the Scriptures(H) must be fulfilled.”(I)

50 Then they all deserted him and ran away.(J)

Judas’s Betrayal of Jesus

47 While(A) he was still speaking, suddenly a mob came, and one of the Twelve named Judas was leading them. He came near Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

49 When those around him saw what was going to happen, they asked, “Lord, should we strike with the sword?” 50 Then one of them struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear.

51 But Jesus responded, “No more of this!” And touching his ear, he healed him. 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, temple police, and the elders who had come for him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as if I were a criminal?[a] 53 Every day while I was with you in the temple,(B) you never laid a hand on me. But this is your hour(C) —and the dominion of darkness.”(D)

  1. 22:52 Lit as against a thief, or a bandit

So Judas took a company of soldiers and some officials[a] from the chief priests and the Pharisees(A) and came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.

Then Jesus, knowing everything that was about to happen to him,(B) went out and said to them, “Who is it that you’re seeking?”

“Jesus of Nazareth,” they answered.

“I am he,”(C) Jesus told them.

Judas, who betrayed him, was also standing with them. When Jesus told them, “I am he,” they stepped back and fell to the ground.

Then he asked them again, “Who is it that you’re seeking?”

“Jesus of Nazareth,” they said.

“I told you I am he,” Jesus replied. “So if you’re looking for me, let these men go.” This was to fulfill(D) the words he had said: “I have not lost one of those you have given me.”(E)

10 Then Simon(F) Peter,(G) who had a sword,(H) drew it, struck the high priest’s(I) servant, and cut off his right ear. (The servant’s name was Malchus.)

11 At that, Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword away! Am I not to drink the cup(J) the Father has given me?”
