After Jesus had said this prayer, he left with his disciples and went across Kidron Brook. There was a garden in that place, and Jesus and his disciples went in.
Judas, the traitor, knew where it was, because many times Jesus had met there with his disciples.
So Judas went to the garden, taking with him a group of Roman soldiers, and some Temple guards sent by the chief priests and the Pharisees; they were armed and carried lanterns and torches.
Jesus knew everything that was going to happen to him, so he stepped forward and asked them, "Who is it you are looking for?"
"Jesus of Nazareth," they answered. "I am he," he said. Judas, the traitor, was standing there with them.
When Jesus said to them, "I am he," they moved back and fell to the ground.
Again Jesus asked them, "Who is it you are looking for?" "Jesus of Nazareth," they said.
"I have already told you that I am he," Jesus said. "If, then, you are looking for me, let these others go.
(He said this so that what he had said might come true: "Father, I have not lost even one of those you gave me.")
Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the High Priest's slave, cutting off his right ear. The name of the slave was Malchus.
