In this way what Jesus had said came true: "I lost none of those you gave me."
Simon Peter had a sword. He drew it, attacked the chief priest's servant, and cut off the servant's right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
Jesus told Peter, "Put your sword away. Shouldn't I drink the cup [of suffering] that my Father has given me?"
Then the army officer and the Jewish guards arrested Jesus. They tied Jesus up
and took him first to Annas, the father-in-law of Caiaphas. Caiaphas, the chief priest that year,
was the person who had advised the Jews that it was better to have one man die for the people.
Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. The other disciple was well-known to the chief priest. So that disciple went with Jesus into the chief priest's courtyard.
Peter, however, was standing outside the gate. The other disciple talked to the woman who was the gatekeeper and brought Peter into the courtyard.
The gatekeeper asked Peter, "Aren't you one of this man's disciples too?" Peter answered, "No, I'm not!"
The servants and the guards were standing around a fire they had built and were warming themselves because it was cold. Peter was standing there, too, and warming himself with the others.
The chief priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teachings.
