The arrest of Jesus is a pivotal event recorded in the Canonical Gospels. The event ultimately leads, in the Gospel accounts, to Jesus' crucifixion. Jesus was arrested by the police force of the Sanhedrin (Kilgallen 271) in the Garden of Gethsemane, shortly after the Last Supper (during which Jesus gave his final sermon), and immediately after the kiss of Judas, which is traditionally said to have been an act of betrayal. The arrest led immediately to his trial before the Sanhedrin, during which they condemn him to death. In Christian theology, the events from the Last Supper until the death and resurrection of Jesus are referred to as The Passion.
