Jesus is betrayed, arrested, and forsaken

Mat 26:47-56

47 And while he was still talking, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a band armed with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and those in authority over the people.
48 Now the false one had given them a sign saying, The one to whom I give a kiss, that is he: take him.
49 And straight away he came to Jesus and said, Master! and gave him a kiss.
50 And Jesus said to him, Friend, do that for which you have come. Then they came and put hands on Jesus, and took him.
51 And one of those who were with Jesus put out his hand, and took out his sword and gave the servant of the high priest a blow, cutting off his ear.
52 Then says Jesus to him, Put up your sword again into its place: for all those who take the sword will come to death by the sword.
53 Does it not seem possible to you that if I make request to my Father he will even now send me an army of angels?
54 But how then would the Writings come true, which say that so it has to be?
55 In that hour Jesus said to the people, Have you come out as against a thief with swords and sticks to take me? I was teaching every day in the Temple and you took me not.
56 But all this has taken place so that the writings of the prophets might come true. Then all his disciples went from him in flight.

Mar 14:43-52

43 And straight away, while he was still talking, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great band with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and the scribes and those in authority.
44 Now he who had been false to him had given them a sign, saying, The one to whom I give a kiss, that is he; take him, and get him away safely.
45 And when he had come, he went straight to him and said, Master; and gave him a kiss.
46 And they put their hands on him, and took him.
47 But a certain one of those who were near took out his sword, and gave the servant of the high priest a blow, cutting off his ear.
48 And Jesus said to them, Have you come out as against a thief, with swords and sticks to take me?
49 I was with you every day in the Temple teaching, and you did not take me; but this is done so that the Writings may come true.
50 And they all went away from him in fear.
51 And a certain young man went after him, with only a linen cloth about his body; and they put their hands on him;
52 But he got away unclothed, without the linen cloth.

Luk 22:47-53

47 And while he was saying these words, there came a band of people, and Judas, one of the twelve, was in front of them, and he came near to Jesus to give him a kiss.
48 But Jesus said to him, Judas, will you be false to the Son of man with a kiss?
49 And when those who were with him saw what was coming, they said, Lord, may we not make use of our swords?
50 And one of them gave a blow to the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51 But Jesus, answering, said, Put up with this, at least. And touching his ear, he made it well.
52 And Jesus said to the chief priests and the captains of the Temple and the rulers, who had come against him, Have you come out as against a thief, with swords and sticks?
53 When I was in the Temple with you every day, your hands were not stretched out against me: but this is your hour, and the authority of the dark power.

Joh 18:2-12

2 And Judas, who was false to him, had knowledge of the place because Jesus went there frequently with his disciples.
3 So Judas, getting a band of armed men and police from the chief priests and Pharisees, went there with lights and with arms.
4 Then Jesus, having knowledge of everything which was coming on him, went forward and said to them, Who are you looking for?
5 Their answer was, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus said, I am he. And Judas, who was false to him, was there at their side.
6 And when he said to them, I am he, they went back, falling to the earth.
7 So again he put the question to them, Who are you looking for? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene.
8 Jesus made answer, I have said that I am he; if you are looking for me, let these men go away.
9 He said this so that his words might come true, I have kept safe all those whom you gave to me.
10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, took it out and gave the high priest’s servant a blow, cutting off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
11 Then Jesus said to Peter, Put back your sword: am I not to take the cup which my Father has given to me?
12 Then the band and the chief captain and the police took Jesus and put cords round him.
