C. Life's Process through Death and Resurrection
1. Delivering Himself in Voluntary Boldness
to Be Processed
1 When Jesus had said these things, aHe 1went forth with His disciples across the brook bKedron, where there was a garden, into which He entered as well as His disciples.
2 And Judas also, who was abetraying Him, knew the place, for Jesus often gathered there with His disciples.
3 Then Judas, having gotten the cohort and some attendants from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with torches and lamps and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, aknowing all the things that were coming upon Him, 1went forth and said to them, Whom do you seek?
5 They answered Him, Jesus the aNazarene. He said to them, 1bI am. And Judas also, who was betraying Him, was standing with them.
6 When therefore He said to them, I am, they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 Then again He asked them, Whom do you seek? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene.
8 Jesus answered, I told you that aI am; if therefore you seek Me, let 1these go away,
9 That the word might be fulfilled which He spoke, aOf those whom You have given Me, I have not lost one.
10 Then Simon Peter, having a asword, drew it and struck the slave of the high priest and bcut off his right ear; and the slave's name was Malchus.
11 Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put the sword into its sheath. The 1cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it?
