 Faith Strengthened Chapter 56  Part 2  

John 18:3-5, etc., "Judas Iscariot having received a band of men from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh with lanterns," etc., and was asked by Jesus, "Whom seek ye? and they answered and said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them."

This account of the betrayal differs from that given in Matthew 26:47-49; Mark 14:43-46; and Luke 22:47-48; for according to those authors of the respective parts of the Gospel, Judas gave a secret sign to his companions, saying, "Him whom I shall kiss, that same is he, hold him fast."
