Christ's Arrest – Altdorfer

Judas Iscariot has just betrayed Our Lord with a kiss. The soldiers approach to arrest Our Lord, but the Apostle Peter defends Him with his sword and cuts off the ear of Malchus — servant of the high priest. Jesus rebukes Peter, who sheathes his sword, and He miraculously reconnects the severed ear.
