Having gone again a second time, he prayed, saying, My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to pass from me, except I drink it, may thy will happen.

Then he comes to his disciples, and says to them, Sleep what remains, and take rest...Behold, the hour has come near, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Awake, we go. Behold, he who betrays me has come near. And while he was still speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs from the chief priest and elders of the people. read more.
Now the man who betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomever I may kiss is he. Seize him. And straightaway having come to Jesus, he said, Hail, Rabbi, and kissed him much. And Jesus said to him, Friend, why are thou here. Then having come, they threw their hands on Jesus, and seized him. And behold, one of those with Jesus, having stretched out a hand, drew his sword, and when he struck the bondman of the high priest, he cut off his ear. Then Jesus says to him, Return thy sword into its place, for all those who take a sword will die by a sword. Or do thou think that I cannot now call my Father, and he will provide to me more than twelve legions of agents? How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it is necessary to happen this way? In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, Did ye come out as against a robber with swords and clubs to seize me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye did not seize me. But all this has come to pass, so that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples fled, having forsook him. And those who seized Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest where the scholars and the elders were assembled together. But Peter followed him from afar, as far as the courtyard of the high priest. And having entered inside, he sat with the subordinates to see the outcome. Now the chief priests and the elders and the whole council sought FALSE testimony against Jesus, so that they might put him to death, and they did not find it. And although many FALSE witnesses came, they did not find it. But finally two FALSE witnesses having come, they said, This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it by three days. And the high priest having stood up, he said to him, Answer thou nothing? What do these testify against thee? But Jesus was silent. And having responded, the high priest said to him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou are the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus says to him, Thou have said. Nevertheless I say to you, Henceforth ye will see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of the sky. Then the high priest tore his garments, saying, He has blasphemed. What further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye heard his blasphemy. What does it seem to you? Having answered, they said, He is deserving of death. Then they spat in his face and struck him with a fist. And some slapped him, saying, Prophesy to us, thou Christ. Who is he who struck thee? Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and one servant girl came to him, saying, Thou also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied before them all, saying, I do not know what thou say.

And straightaway, while he still spoke, Judas, being one of the twelve, comes, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs from the chief priests, and the scholars, and the elders. Now he who betrayed him had given them a sign, saying, Whomever I may kiss is he. Seize him, and lead away securely. And when he came, straightaway having approached him, he says, Rabbi, Rabbi, and kissed him much. read more.
And they threw their hands on him, and seized him. And a certain one of those who stood by, having drawn his sword, struck the bondman of the high priest, and cut off his ear. And having answered, Jesus said to them, Have ye come out as against a robber with swords and clubs to arrest me? I was daily near you, teaching in the temple, and ye did not seize me--but that the scriptures might be fulfilled. And having forsook him, they all fled. And a certain one young man followed with him, having been wrapped naked in a linen cloth. And the young men seized him, but having left behind the linen cloth, he fled from them naked. And they led Jesus away to the high priest. And all the chief priests and the elders and the scholars assemble with him. And Peter followed him from a distance, as far as inside the courtyard of the high priest, and was sitting with the subordinates, and warming himself near the light. Now the chief priests and the whole council sought testimony against Jesus in order to put him to death, and did not find it. For many testified falsely against him, and their testimonies were not consistent. And some men having stood up, testified falsely against him, saying, We heard him saying, I will destroy this temple made with hands, and by three days I will build another not made with hands. And not even this way was their testimony consistent. And the high priest having stood up in the midst, he demanded Jesus, saying, Thou answer nothing? What is it these men testify against thee? But he remained silent, and answered nothing. Again the high priest demanded him, and says to him, Are thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am. And ye will see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of the sky. And the high priest having torn his clothes, he says, What further need have we of witnesses? Ye have heard the blasphemy. What does it seem to you? And they all condemned him to be deserving of death. And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to strike him with a fist, and to say to him, Prophesy. And the subordinates were throwing him with slaps. And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest comes. And having seen Peter warming himself, having looked at him, she says, Thou also were with Jesus of Nazareth. But he denied, saying, I know not, nor understand what thou say. And he went outside onto the porch, and a cock sounded. And the servant girl having seen him, she began again to say to those who stood by, This man is from them. But he again denied it. And after a little while again those who stood by said to Peter, Surely thou are from them, for thou are a Galilean, and thy accent is similar. But he began to curse and to swear, I do not know this man of whom ye speak. And the second time a cock sounded. And Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him, Before a cock sounds twice, thou will deny me thrice. And having broke down, he wept.

While he yet spoke, behold, a multitude, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them. And he came near to Jesus to kiss him. But Jesus said to him, Judas, thou betray the Son of man with a kiss? And when those who were around him saw what would be, they said, Lord, shall we strike with the sword? read more.
And a certain one of them struck the bondman of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. But having answered, Jesus said, Allow ye as far as this. And having touched his ear, he healed him. And Jesus said to the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and elders, who came to him, Have ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs? When I was with you daily in the temple, ye did not stretch forth hands against me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness. And having seized him, they led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. But Peter followed from afar. And having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter sat in the midst of them. But a certain servant girl having seen him sitting near the light, and having looked intently upon him, she said, This man was also with him. But he denied him, saying, Woman, I do not know him. And after a little while, another man having see him, said, Thou also are from them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. And about one hour having passed, some other man insisted, saying, In truth this man was also with him, for he is also a Galilean. And Peter said, Man, I do not know what thou are saying. And immediately, while he still spoke, a cock sounded. And having turned, the Lord looked on Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, Before a cock sounds thou will deny me thrice. And having gone outside, Peter wept bitterly. And the men who held Jesus mocked him, while striking him. And having covered him, they struck his face, and demanded him, saying, Prophesy! Who is he who struck thee? And they spoke many other things against him, railing against him. And when it became day, the eldership of the people, the chief priests, and the scholars, came together, and led him into their council, saying, If thou are the Christ, tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not believe, and if I also ask, ye will, no, not answer nor release. From henceforth the Son of man will be sitting at the right hand of the power of God. And they all said, Therefore thou are the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am. And they said, What further need have we of testimony? For we have heard from his mouth.

Judas therefore having received the band and subordinates from the chief priests and the Pharisees, comes there with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore knowing all the things that were coming upon him, after going forth, he says to them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus says to them, I am he. And Judas, the man betraying him had also stood with them. read more.
When therefore he said to them, I am he, they went backward and fell to the ground. Again therefore he questioned them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus answered, I told you that I am. If therefore ye seek me, allow these men to go, so that the word that he spoke might be fulfilled, Of whom thou have given me, I lost, no, not one of them. Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's bondman, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchus. Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath. The cup that the Father has given me, shall I, no, not drink it? So the band, and the chief captain, and the subordinates of the Jews, arrested Jesus and bound him, and led him away first to Annas. For he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. Now Caiaphas was the man who counseled the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, also the other disciple. But that disciple was known to the high priest, and he went in with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. But Peter had stood near the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper and brought in Peter. Therefore the servant girl (the doorkeeper) says to Peter, Are thou not also of this man's disciples? That man says, I am not. Now the bondmen and the subordinates had stood, having made a fire of coals because it was cold, and they were warming themselves. And Peter was also standing with them warming himself. The high priest therefore asked Jesus about his disciples, and about his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spoke in public to the world. I always taught in a synagogue, and in the temple where the Jews always gather together, and I spoke nothing in secret. Why question thou me? Question those who have heard what I said to them. Behold, these know the things that I said. And when he said these things, one of the subordinates standing by gave a slap to Jesus, saying, Answer thou the high priest this way? Jesus answered him, If I spoke wrongly, testify about the wrong, but if correctly, why strike me? Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest. Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. Therefore they said to him, Are thou not also of his disciples? That man therefore denied, and said, I am not. One of the bondmen of the high priest, being a kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, says, Did I not see thee in the garden with him? Peter therefore denied again, and straightaway a cock sounded. They lead Jesus therefore from Caiaphas to the Praetorium. And it was early, and they did not enter into the Praetorium, so that they would not be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover. Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, What accusation do ye bring against this man? They answered and said to him, If this man were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered him up to thee. Pilate therefore said to them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is not permitted for us to kill any man, so that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled that he spoke, signifying what kind of death he was going to die. Pilate therefore again entered into the Praetorium, and called Jesus, and said to him, Are thou the king of the Jews? Jesus answered, Do thou say this of thyself, or did others tell thee about me? Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests delivered thee to me. What have thou done? Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world my subordinates would have fought so that I would not be delivered to the Jews, but now my kingdom is not from here. Pilate therefore said to him, Then thou a king? Jesus answered, Thou say that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I would testify to the truth. Every man who is of the truth hears m Pilate says to him, What is truth? And having said this, he went out again to the Jews, and says to them, I find not one cause in him. But there is a custom for you that I should release to you one man at the Passover. Do ye wish therefore I would release to you the king of the Jews? They all cried out again therefore, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. But Barabbas was a robber.







And the second time a cock sounded. And Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him, Before a cock sounds twice, thou will deny me thrice. And having broke down, he wept.
