[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] Joh 18:1 When Jesus had finished praying, he and his disciples crossed the Kidron Valley and went into a garden.
Joh 18:2 Jesus had often met there with his disciples, and Judas knew where the place was.
Joh 18:3 Judas had promised to betray Jesus. So he went to the garden with some Roman soldiers and temple police, who had been sent by the chief priests and the Pharisees. They carried torches, lanterns, and weapons. Jesus already knew everything that was going to happen, but he asked, "Who are you looking for?" They answered, "We are looking for Jesus from Nazareth!" Jesus told them, "I am Jesus!"
Joh 18:4 (SEE 18:3)
Joh 18:5 (SEE 18:3)
Joh 18:6 At once they all backed away and fell to the ground.
Joh 18:7 Jesus again asked, "Who are you looking for?" "We are looking for Jesus from Nazareth," they answered.
Joh 18:8 This time Jesus replied, "I have already told you that I am Jesus. If I am the one you are looking for, let these others go.
Joh 18:9 Then everything will happen, just as I said, 'I did not lose anyone you gave me.' "
Joh 18:10 Simon Peter had brought along a sword. He now pulled it out and struck at the servant of the high priest. The servant's name was Malchus, and Peter cut off his right ear.
Joh 18:11 Jesus told Peter, "Put your sword away. I must drink from the cup that the Father has given me."
Joh 18:12 The Roman officer and his men, together with the temple police, arrested Jesus and tied him up.
Joh 18:13 They took him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
Joh 18:14 This was the same Caiaphas who had told the Jewish leaders, "It is better if one person dies for the people."
Joh 18:15 Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. That disciple knew the high priest, and he followed Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest's house.
Joh 18:16 Peter stayed outside near the gate. But the other disciple came back out and spoke to the girl at the gate. She let Peter go in,
Joh 18:17 but asked him, "Aren't you one of that man's followers?" "No, I am not!" Peter answered.
Joh 18:18 It was cold, and the servants and temple police had made a charcoal fire. They were warming themselves around it, when Peter went over and stood near the fire to warm himself.
