1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was a garden, and he and his disciples went into it.
2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. 3 So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.
4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?”
5 “Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied.
“I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.
“I am he.” EiÎmið. Literally “I am.”
And they “fell.” Piðptw. To withdraw from a high place to a lower one. To lay prostrate in worship.
Wherever I am, whatever I am, however I am – Jesus, You are. Let me experience that, totally aware, today.
Take me from my high place to a lower one. Humbled and surrendered and grateful from head to toenails for all You are and are to me.
