Jesus Arrested

18:3-11pp -- Mt 26:47-56; Mk 14:43-50; Lk 22:47-53

1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley.1 On the other side there was a garden,2 and he and his disciples went into it.3 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.4 3 So Judas came to the garden, guiding5 a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees.6 They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons. 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him,7 went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"8 5 "Jesus of Nazareth,"9 they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground. 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?"10 "Jesus of Nazareth," they said. 8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, then let these men go." 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."a11 10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
