Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

1 When Jesus had spoken these words, 1he went out with his disciples across 2the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew 3the place, for 4Jesus often met there with his disciples. 3 5So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4 Then Jesus, 6knowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them, 7"Whom do you seek?" 5 They answered him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am he."a Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. 6 8When Jesusb said to them, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground. 7 So he asked them again, 9"Whom do you seek?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." 8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. So, if you seek me, let these men go." 9 10This was to fulfill the word that he had spoken: "Of those whom you gave me I have lost not one."
