Speaker: Kyle Horton

Scripture: John 18:1–18:12

John 18:1-2 (ESV)
  1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered.  2 Now
  John 18:2-3 (ESV)
  Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples.  3 So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers
  John 18:3-4 (ESV)
  from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons.  4 Then Jesus, knowing all that would happen to him, came
  John 18:4-5 (ESV)
  forward and said to them, "Whom do you seek?"  5 They answered him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am he." Judas, who betrayed him,
  John 18:5-7 (ESV)
  was standing with them.  6 When Jesus said to them, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.  7 So he asked them again, "Whom do you seek?" And
  John 18:7-9 (ESV)
  they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."  8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. So, if you seek me, let these men go."  9 This was to fulfill the word that
  John 18:9-10 (ESV)
  he had spoken: "Of those whom you gave me I have lost not one."  10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant
  John 18:10-11 (ESV)
  and cut off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)  11 So Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the
  John 18:11-12 (ESV)
  Father has given me?"  12 So the band of soldiers and their captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound him.

Matthew 26:48-50 (ESV)
  48 Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "The one I will kiss is the man; seize him."  49 And he came up to Jesus at once and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" And he kissed him.  50 Jesus said to him, "Friend, do what you came to do." Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him.

John 13:18-20 (ESV)
  18 I am not speaking of all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But the Scripture will be fulfilled, 'He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.'  19 I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he.  20 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me."

Luke 22:49-51 (ESV)
  49 And when those who were around him saw what would follow, they said, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?"  50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.  51 But Jesus said, "No more of this!" And he touched his ear and healed him.
