Mark 14:44

And he that betrayed him had given them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.

Lead Him away carefully: Gr. α̉σφαλω̃ς, i.e, securely, safely. Arab. Fear ye concerning Him; lest, that Isaiah , He glide away out of your hands, as He has done upon other occasions.

Dionysius of Alexandria

AD 264
How magnificent is the endurance of evil by the Lord who even kissed his own traitor, and then spoke words even softer than a kiss! For he did not say, O you abominable one, or traitor, is this what you do in return for great kindnesses? He simply says “Judas,” using his first name. This is in the voice of one commiserating with another or who wished another to come back to him, not the voice of anger. .

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
