John 18 : 1-11

Jesus Is Betrayed and Arrested
 1  After saying these things, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with his disciples and entered a grove of olive trees.  2  Judas, the betrayer, knew this place, because Jesus had often gone there with his disciples.  3  The leading priests and Pharisees had given Judas a contingent of Roman soldiers and Temple guards to accompany him. Now with blazing torches, lanterns, and weapons, they arrived at the olive grove.
   4  Jesus fully realized all that was going to happen to him, so he stepped forward to meet them. "Who are you looking for?" he asked.
   5  "Jesus the Nazarene," [5]  they replied.
  "I AM he," [5]  Jesus said. (Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them.)  6  As Jesus said "I AM he," they all drew back and fell to the ground!  7  Once more he asked them, "Who are you looking for?"
  And again they replied, "Jesus the Nazarene."
   8  "I told you that I AM he," Jesus said. "And since I am the one you want, let these others go."  9  He did this to fulfill his own statement: "I did not lose a single one of those you have given me." [9] 
   10  Then Simon Peter drew a sword and slashed off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest's slave.  11  But Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword back into its sheath. Shall I not drink from the cup of suffering the Father has given me?"
