This episode is included in all four gospels. All have Judas identifying Jesus for the crowd of supporters of the chief priest and elders, and all but John mention Judas kissing Jesus to effect this identification.

The narrative of this event in John's gospel is read on Good Friday (the Friday before Easter).
