The Life and Teachings
of Jesus
A Restatement of the Gospels

147. The Arrest of Jesus (continued)

        50Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus. 10Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it. 11Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; 52for they who take the sword will perish by the sword. 11Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me? 53Do you think I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?”
        12So the band of soldiers and their captain and the officers of the Jews seized Jesus and bound him. 55At that hour Jesus said to the crowds, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me.”
        56Then all the disciples forsook him and fled.
        51And a young man followed him, with nothing but a linen coat about his body. They seized him, 52but he left the linen coat and ran away naked.
