John 18 vs. 3: 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons
Jesus was ambushed and arrested by a gang of security operatives fully armed to the teeth. This is a psychological torture. Dakes Bible commentary on this says the gang comprise up to 600 people.
In spite of this he kept his composure and rebuked Peter for trying to resist his arrest.
We must learn how to manage crises, remain calm in face of provocation and allow God to fight for us. Jesus told Peter to put his sheath down. The battle is the Lord’s
