Matthew 26:48-50

Context
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  26:50 Jesus 6  said to him, “Friend, do what you are here to do.” Then they came and took hold 7  of Jesus and arrested him.

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.

6 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

7 tn Grk “and put their hands on Jesus.”
