Betrayed with a Kiss

Found in Matthew 26:47-50, Mark 14:43-46, Luke 22:47-48 and John 18:1-9

John 18:1-3

When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where there was a garden. He and his disciples entered therein.

Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place also: for Jesus often resorted here with his disciples. And Judas, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came here with lanterns and torches and weapons.

Matthew 26:48-50

Now he who betrayed him gave them a sign.

Judas: Whoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

Luke adds that Judas “went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss him.” (22:47)

Judas (to Jesus): Hail, master.

And Judas kissed Jesus.

Jesus: Friend, why have you come? (Do you betray the Son of man with a kiss? – Luke 22:48)

John 18:4-9

Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth. 

Jesus (to the men): Whom do you seek?

The men: Jesus of Nazareth. 

Jesus: I am he. 

Judas, who betrayed him, stood with them also. As soon then as he had said to them, I am he, they went backward and fell to the ground.

Jesus (again to the men): Whom do you seek? 

The men: Jesus of Nazareth.

Jesus: I have told you that I am he: if therefore you seek me, let these go their way.

That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Of them who you gave me have I lost none.

Matthew 26:50b

Then they came and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
