God's Son Betrayed
1. Today's passage: Mark 14:43-52
I encourage you to read from your own bible - Your bible will become your best friend.

Or, you may read below for the New Living Testament NLT
43. And immediately, even as Jesus said this, Judas, one of the twelve disciples, arrived with a crowd of men armed with swords and clubs. They had been sent by the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the elders.
44. The traitor, Judas, had given them a prearranged signal: "You will know which one to arrest when I greet him with a kiss. Then you can take him away under guard."
45. As soon as they arrived, Judas walked up to Jesus. "Rabbi!" he exclaimed, and gave him the kiss.
45. Then the others grabbed Jesus and arrested him.
47. But one of the men with Jesus pulled out his sword and struck the high priest's slave, slashing off his ear.
48. Jesus asked them, "Am I some dangerous revolutionary, that you come with swords and clubs to arrest me?
49. Why didn't you arrest me in the Temple? I was there among you teaching every day. But these things are happening to fulfill what the Scriptures say about me."
50. Then all his disciples deserted him and ran away.
51. One young man following behind was clothed only in a long linen shirt. When the mob tried to grab him,
52. he slipped out of his shirt and ran away naked." Mark 14:43-52 NLT
2. And the plot thickens.
We know the story pretty well.
