John 18:1-11 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 After saying these things, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with his disciples and entered a grove of olive trees. 2 Judas, the betrayer, knew this place, because Jesus had gone there many times with his disciples. 3 The leading priests and Pharisees had given Judas a battalion of Roman soldiers and Temple guards to accompany him. Now with blazing torches, lanterns, and weapons, they arrived at the olive grove. 4 Jesus fully realized all that was going to happen to him. Stepping forward to meet them, he asked, "Whom are you looking for?" 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," a Jesus said. Judas was standing there with them when Jesus identified himself. 6 And as he said, "I am he," they all fell backward to the ground! 7 Once more he asked them, "Whom are you searching for?" And again they replied, "Jesus of Nazareth." 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus said. "And since I am the one you want, let these others go." 9 He did this to fulfill his own statement: "I have not lost a single one of those you gave me." b 10 Then Simon Peter drew a sword and slashed off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest's servant. 11 But Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword back into its sheath. Shall I not drink from the cup the Father has given me?"
