What Has Come Before:
While Jesus was talking at the Passover supper, he became very sad and sorrowful, and said, "Verily,
verily, I say to you, that one of you that are eating with me shall betray me,
and give me up to those who will kill me."
Then all the disciples looked round on each other, wondering who was the one
that Jesus meant. One said, and another said, "Am I the one, Lord?"
And Jesus said, "It is one of you twelve men, who are dipping your hands into
the same dish and eating with me. The Son of Man goes, as it is written of him;
but woe to that man who betrays him and gives him up to die. It would have been
good for that man if he had never been born."
While Jesus was speaking, Simon Peter made signs to John across the table, that
he, leaning next to Jesus, should ask him who this traitor was. So John
whispered to Jesus, as he was lying close to him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus
answered, but so low that none else heard: "It is the one to whom I will give a
piece of bread after I have dipped it in the dish."
Then Jesus dipped into the dish a piece of bread, and gave it to Judas Iscariot,
who was lying near him. And as he gave it, he said, "Do quickly what you are
going to do."
No one except John knew what this meant. Not all heard what Jesus said to Judas;
and those who heard thought that Jesus was telling him to do something belonging
to the feast, or perhaps, as Judas carried the money, that he should make some
gift to the poor. But Judas at once went out, for he saw now that his plan was
known, and it must be carried out now or never. He knew that after the supper
Jesus would go back to Bethany; and he went to the rulers, told them where they
might watch for Jesus on his way back to Bethany, and went with a band of men to
a place at the foot of the Mount of Olive, where he was sure Jesus would pass.
Judas Iscariot went to the chief priests and
said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they
counted out to him thirty pieces of silver. So from that time he sought
opportunity to betray Jesus...

The Kiss of Judas, Jean Bourdichon c. 1500
BETRAYED WITH A KISS
Matthew 26:47-56 ; Mark 14:43-52
Luke 22:47-53 ; John 18:1-27
Jesus had prayed and was now ready for the fate that was soon to come.
Once more he went to the three sleeping disciples, and said to them, "You may as well
sleep on now, and take your rest, for the hour is at hand; and already the Son
of man is given by the traitor into the hands of sinners. But rise up, and let
us be going. See, the traitor is here!"
The disciples awoke; they heard the noise of a crowd, and saw the flashing of
torches, and the gleaming of swords and spears. In the throng they saw Judas
standing, and they knew now that he was the traitor of whom Jesus had spoken the
night before. Judas came rushing forward, and kissed Jesus, as though he were
glad to see him. This was a signal that he had given beforehand to the band; for
the men of the guard did not know Jesus, and Judas had said to them, "The one
that I shall kiss is the man that you are to take; seize him and hold him fast."
The Betrayal of Christ
Anthony Van Dyck 1620-1622
The Taking of Christ
Francisco de Goya
Jesus said to Judas, "Judas, do you betray the Son of man with a kiss?" Then he
turned to the crowd, and said, "Whom do you seek?" They answered, "Jesus of
Nazareth." Jesus said, "I am he." When Jesus said this, a sudden fear came upon
his enemies; they drew back, and fell upon the ground.
After a moment, Jesus said again, "Whom do you seek?" And again they answered,
"Jesus of Nazareth." And Jesus said, pointing to his disciples, "I told you that
I am he. If you are seeking me, let these disciples go their own way." But as
they came forward to seize Jesus, Peter drew his sword, and struck at one of the
men in front, and cut off his right ear. The man was a servant of the
high-priest, and his name was Malchus.

Jesus said to Peter, "Put up the sword into its sheath; the cup which my Father
has given me, shall I not drink it? Do you not know that I could call upon my
Father, and he would send to me armies upon armies of angels?" Then he spoke to
the crowd: "Let me do this." And he touched the place where the ear had been cut
off, and it came on again and was well. Jesus said to the rulers and leaders of
the armed men, "Do you come out against me with swords and clubs as though
I were a robber? I was with you every day in the Temple, and you did not lift
your hands against me. But the words in the Scriptures must come to pass; and
this is your hour."
When the disciples of Jesus saw that he would not allow them to fight for him,
they did not know what to do. In their sudden alarm they all ran away, and left
their Master alone with his enemies. These men laid their hands on Jesus, and
bound him, and led him away to the house of the high-priest.
