Jesus Is Arrested

1 When Jesus had finished praying, he left with his disciples. They crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was a grove of olive trees. Jesus and his disciples went into it. 2 Judas knew the place. He was going to hand Jesus over to his enemies. Jesus had often met in that place with his disciples. 3 So Judas came to the grove. He was guiding a group of soldiers and some officials. The chief priests and the Pharisees had sent them. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons. 4 Jesus knew everything that was going to happen to him. So he went out and asked them, "Who is it that you want?" 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. Judas, who was going to hand Jesus over, was standing there with them. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they moved back. Then they fell to the ground. 7 He asked them again, "Who is it that you want?" They said, "Jesus of Nazareth." 8 "I told you I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go." 9 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken would come true. He had said, "I have not lost anyone God has given me."#1(John 6:39)#2 10 Simon Peter had a sword and pulled it out. He struck the high priest's servant and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
