When Yeshua had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples over the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, into which he and his disciples entered.
Now Judah, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Yeshua often met there with his disciples.
Judah then, having taken a detachment of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
Yeshua therefore, knowing all the things that were happening to him, went forth, and said to them, Who are you looking for?
They answered him, Yeshua of Nazareth. Yeshua said to them, I am he. Judah also, who betrayed him, was standing with them.
When therefore he said to them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
Again therefore he asked them, Who are you looking for? They said, Yeshua of Nazareth.
Yeshua answered, I told you that I am he. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way,
that the word might be fulfilled which he spoke, Of those whom you have given me, I have lost none.
Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the high priests servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
Yeshua therefore said to Peter, Put the sword into its sheath. The cup which the Father has given me, shall I not surely drink it?
So the detachment, the commanding officer, and the officers of the Judeans, seized Yeshua and bound him,
and led him to Annas first, for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.
Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Judeans that it was expedient that one man should perish for the people.
Simon Peter followed Yeshua, as did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered in with Yeshua into the court of the high priest;
but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought in Peter.
Then the maid who kept the door said to Peter, Are you also one of this mans disciples? He said, I am not.
Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold. They were warming themselves. Peter was with them, standing and warming himself.
The high priest therefore asked Yeshua about his disciples, and about his teaching.
Yeshua answered him, I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where the Jews always meet. I said nothing in secret.
The phrase Yeshua speaks, “I said nothing in secret,” וְלֹא־דִבַּרְתִּי דָבָר בַּסָּתֶר, echoes the words of Isaiah 48,
“Come near to me and hear this: From the beginning I have not spoken in secret (לֹ֤א מֵרֹאשׁ֙ בַּסֵּ֣תֶר דִּבַּ֔רְתִּי); from the time that it was, there am I. Now the L-rd HaShem has sent me, with his Spirit.”
