In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4

What to take away: Speak your faith, Take action, Thy faith hath made thee whole


When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, having received a great multitude of men and officers from the chief priests, scribes and elders of the people, and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns, torches, weapons, swords and staves.

And he that betrayed him had given them a token, a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, hold him fast, and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to Jesus, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him. And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up again thy sword into his place, into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? For all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, and unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. This is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him.
And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
