The kiss of Judas


The kiss of Judas is an episode from the Gospel when Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus Christ’s disciples, betrayed his teacher one night in the Garden of Gethsemane by identifying him for the guards with a kiss: “lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.” (Matthew 26:47-49)
