Betrayed, Arrested Questioned, & Denied

 John 18:1-27

The Taking of Christ by Carravagio, 

Each of the four Gospels has its own emphasis or theme in its depiction of the arrest of Jesus. John focuses on the equanimity and self-possession of Jesus and the sharp contrast between him, those who arrest and question him, and those who were his friends. As he looks back on these events as an eyewitness of them, it seems he raises questions about who was really in control of the situation.
