Before Jesus and his students can leave the garden, his persecution is set in motion. A dispatch of officers from the temple storms the hillside with swords and clubs expecting a fight. Jesus mocks them for it. What had he or his students done in the past few days to make them think they were some kind of bandits?
But the part that cuts deep is who turns him in: Jesus’ own student. One of his closest followers and friends walks up and transforms a kiss traditional for Jewish teachers into a mark for arrest and eventual execution.
Read Mark 14:43-53
