Christ: Betrayal and Arrest -- Christ, cross-nimbed, holding book in left arm, with right hand extended, is embraced by Judas, with helmeted soldiers behind him, some holding spears, one holding torch. To left stands Peter, nimbed, holding knife, beside kneeling figure, possibly Malchus, with hands raised to face. To right stand two men, one with his left hand on left shoulder of the Christ and the other holding torch.
