In this passage, where Judas led a delegation to arrest Jesus, there were a few details that didn’t make sense to Dr. Bramson. First, if this was a huge sting operation by the Romans, why didn’t the soldiers arrest all the disciples, including Peter, who took a stab at the high priest’s servant? Next, what did Jesus mean by “all who draw the sword will die by the sword?” Was this a call to pacifism? Finally, what made the soldiers fall back when Jesus answered their question about who they were looking for? Looking at John 18 helps Dr. Bramson answer these questions.
