John has a Revelation and tells how it came about. It is important that the churches know that the revelation comes from Jesus, and that they understand that the revelation was also validated by the Holy Spirit.

The betrayal and arrest of Jesus

TEXT: MATTHEW 26:47-56

After Jesus finished praying in the Gethsemane garden, Judas Iscariot re-enters the narrative. Behind him is a "multitude" of people stirred up by the Jewish chief priests and elders.
