John 18:2-11 New International Version

2  Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. 3  So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons. 4  Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?" 5  "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) 6  When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground. 7  Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?""Jesus of Nazareth," they said. 8  Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, then let these men go." 9  This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."[1] 10  Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.) 11  Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
