The hour of trial has arrived. The night grew dark. The authorities and enemies of Christ seized the Lord. Jesus’ closest companions fled the scene. An unnamed young man runs away naked. Everything Jesus said would happen is unfolding, just as he foretold: betrayal, arrest, abandonment. The very ones who insisted they would stay close fled for their lives. The chief Apostle – the “Rock” – would crumble under the pain of embarrassment. Jesus is left alone.
