Suddenly, while he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, appeared, and with him was a crowd armed with swords & cudgels, sent by the chief priests, lawyers and elders. Now the traitor had agreed with them upon a signal: “The one I kiss is your man; seize him and get him safely away.” When he reached the spot, he stepped forward at once and said to Jesus, “Rabbi,” and kissed him. Then they seized him and held him fast.
One of the party drew his sword, and struck at the High Priest’s servant, cutting off his ear.
Then Jesus spoke: “Do you take me for a bandit, that you have come out with swords and cudgels to arrest me? Day after day I was within your reach as I taught in the Temple, and you did not lay hands upon me. But let the scriptures be fulfilled.”
Then the disciples all deserted him and ran away. Among those following was a young man with nothing on but a linen cloth. They tried to seize him, but he slipped out of the linen cloth and ran away naked.
