Mark 14:43-52 : 

Mark 14:43-52 The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

Slide 2: 

43 And immediately, while he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44 Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him and lead him away safely.” 45 And when he came, he went up to him at once, and said, “Master!” And he kissed him. 46 And they laid hands on him and seized him. 47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? 49 Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the scriptures be fulfilled.” 50 And they all deserted him, and fled. 51 And a young man followed him, with nothing but a linen cloth about his body; and they seized him, 52 but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked.

47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear. Who is the armed bystander? Turning to John 18:10 we find the “bystander,” was Peter. Peter’s sword was probably a Roman short sword that could be hidden under a person’s clothes. Peter had cut off the ear of a man named Malchus (Jn. 18:11). In the Gospel of Luke 22:50-51 we discover that Jesus immediately healed the ear. Amazing isn’t it, Jesus had just been praying to the Father, asked that the coming events pass him by but the Father had willed instead that Jesus go to the cross, with all of this, and the images of previous crucifixions on his mind, Jesus focused on the victim of Peter’s attack and restored him. Clearly, this is the mark of a man in total control of the situation.

Slide 4: 

48 And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? I would argue that Jesus made this statement in order to point out that he was neither a criminal nor a threat to any of them. They didn’t need weapons because Jesus would not fight but would willingly go with them to fulfill the Father’s plan. 49 Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the scriptures be fulfilled.” Remember the chief priests wanted to have Jesus arrested without the people’s knowledge because they were afraid that the people would riot in order to free Jesus and also turn against his accusers. Then why did Judas need to betray Jesus with a kiss, didn’t they already know what he looked like? As Jesus said, “let the scriptures be fulfilled” (v. 49). The Son of Man was to be betrayed, and so he was.

Slide 5: 

51 And a young man followed him, with nothing but a linen cloth about his body; and they seized him, 52 but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked. These verses are only found in Mark. You will recall that Judas left the Last Supper before it was finished. We can speculate that when Judas went to get the soldiers he would have brought them to the last place that he saw Jesus, the upper room. Some think the Upper Room was near the home of Mark, and the commotion created by Judas and his band woke him. Did Mark hastily wrap a sheet around his body and follow them? We’ll never know
