Luke 22:47-53

Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

47 aWhile he was still speaking, there came a crowd, and the man called bJudas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss him, 48but Jesus said to him, Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?” 49And when those who were around him saw what would follow, they said, “Lord, shall we strike cwith the sword?” 50And one of them struck the servant
Greek bondservant
of the high priest and cut off his right ear.
51But Jesus said, No more of this!” And he touched his ear and healed him. 52Then Jesus said to the chief priests and eofficers of the temple and elders, who had come out against him, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs? 53When fI was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me. But this is gyour hour, and hthe power of darkness.”
