View In My Bible
1 After Yeshua had said all this, he went out with his talmidim across the stream that flows in winter through the Vadi Kidron, to a spot where there was a grove of trees; and he and his talmidim went into it. 2 Now Y'hudah, who was betraying him, also knew the place; because Yeshua had often met there with his talmidim. 3 So Y'hudah went there, taking with him a detachment of Roman soldiers and some Temple guards provided by the head cohanim and the P'rushim; they carried weapons, lanterns and torches. 4 Yeshua, who knew everything that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Whom do you want?" "Yeshua from 5 Natzeret," they answered. He said to them, "I AM." Also standing with them was Y'hudah, the one who was betraying him. 6 When he said, "I AM," they went back ward from him and fell to the ground. 7 So he inquired of them once more, "Whom do you want?" and they said, "Yeshua from Natzeret." 8 "I told you, `I AM,'" answered Yeshua, "so if I'm the one you want, let these others go." 9 This happened so that what he had said might be fulfilled, "I have not lost one of those you gave me." 10 Then Shim`on Kefa, who had a sword, drew it and struck the slave of the cohen hagadol, cutting off his right ear; the slave's name was Melekh.
