Previous StationNext Station

James Jacques Tissot (French painter and illustrator, 1836-1902), "The Kiss of Judas (Le baiser de Judas)" (1884-1896), Opaque watercolor over graphite on gray wove paper, 20.5 x 27 cm, Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY.
John 18:1-3 (NIV)

"1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. 3 So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons."

Matthew 26:47-50 (NIV)

"47 While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people. 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: 'The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.' 49 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, 'Greetings, Rabbi!' and kissed him.

50 Jesus replied, 'Friend, do what you came for.' Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him."
