“While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and elders of the people. (Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, aThe one I kiss is the man. Arrest him!ai) Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, aGreetings, Rabbi,ai and kissed him. Jesus said to him, aFriend, do what you are here to do.ai Then they came and took hold of Jesus and arrested him. (Matthew, Chapter 26, 47-50). Woodcut after a drawing by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (German painter, 1794 – 1872) from my archive, published in 1877.”
