Mark 14:46-50

Mark 14:46 (KJB)
And they laid their hands on him, and took him.

(Mat 26:50 KJV) And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. Then Jesus responds with the word “friend” which was a greeting but it was a greeting to the people one did not know. It was a prophecy of things to come for Judas. (Mat 7:23 KJV) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Jesus did not acknowledge the name of Judas even though He knew him. Then Jesus asks him basically for what reason are you here? Then the time for talk was over as they apprehended Jesus and took Him to appear before the Sanhedrin which would have been called together in its fullness. When the verse states that they laid their hands on Him, it is speaking of a hostile sense of taking Jesus.

Mark 14:47 (KJB)
And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

Then Simon Peter took his sword and drew it and wanted to fight and had wielded it and took off the ear of Malchus. (John 18:10 KJV) Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Peter stated that he would die with Jesus instead of forsaking Him but this would be the last time Peter would be brave until after the resurrection. Maybe Peter thought that when Jesus saw the sword drawn it would have been a good time for Jesus to rebuke those who came for Him. Peter was forgetting that this was savoring the things of men and not the things of God. That is what Jesus told him when he made his confession that Jesus was the Christ.

Mark 14:48 (KJB)
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?

Jesus then expresses His surprise at the way the crowd had approached Him to arrest Him. They came out with enough weapons to subdue a riot and then Jesus poses a question to them that are you coming to get me as you would a thief? Did they expect that there would be much opposition in His arrest. They were probably in fear to take Jesus just as in the time of Elijah when he called down fire from Heaven, they probably feared that Jesus would do the same thing.

Mark 14:49 (KJB)
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Jesus then tells them that every single day I was with you teaching in the temple and no one had laid hands on me. (Mat 26:55 KJV) In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. Why would they come in this fashion now? It was because the Scripture had to be fulfilled

Mark 14:50 (KJB)
And they all forsook him, and fled.

All the disciples had fled from the scene because no one could be seen having any part in what Jesus was going to do or else it would have seemed like man had a part in the salvation plan of God and that would be false. This abandonment was also a fulfillment of Scripture. (Zec 13:7 KJV) Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. The chief priests and elders had no idea what the Hebrew Scriptures taught and that proves the truth of the Scriptures because they were fulfilling the Scriptures without them realizing it.
