The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus Christ (Mark 14: 43-52, Matt 26: 47-58)

Everyone is called to ministry, but, experiences differ from person to person. Jesus suffered more than any of us, especially his betrayal and disappointment of his disciples, whom he taught would have stayed with him.

Immediately after the last supper, Jesus and his disciples left for mount of Olives to the Garden of Gethsemane, where he went to pray. Meanwhile, Judas Iscariot had betrayed his master, making himself an official accuser of Jesus.

With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people.

The betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.” Matthew 26:48

Judas Iscariot who came with a crowd kissed Jesus, and Jesus was then arrested.

On the arrest of Jesus, the mob took Jesus to the house of the high priest Caiaphas, where the teachers of the law and the elders had assembled, for trial. 

However, Peter was provoked, he pulled out his knife and cut off the ears of one of the servants, but, Jesus condemned his act. Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.

At this point, all the disciples of Jesus ran away except Peter, who stood and watched from a distance.
