Matthew 26:48-49

26:48 (Now the betrayer 1  had given them a sign, saying, “The one I kiss is the man. 2  Arrest him!”) 3  26:49 Immediately 4  he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi,” and kissed him. 5 

1 tn Grk “the one who betrays him.”

2 tn Grk “The one I kiss is he.”

3 sn This remark is parenthetical within the narrative and has thus been placed in parentheses.

4 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.

5 sn Judas’ act of betrayal when he kissed Jesus is especially sinister when it is realized that it was common in the culture of the times for a disciple to kiss his master when greeting him.
