Even the “Falling Down” Part

So, Judas, having received a cohort, as well as officers from the chief priests
and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, and torches, and weapons.
Then Jesus, knowing all things that were coming upon him,
went out and said to them,‘Who are you looking for?’
They answered him, ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ Jesus said to them, ‘I am he.’  
(And Judas, the one who betrayed him, was also standing among them.)
Then, when he said to them, ‘I am he’,
they went backward and fell to the ground.”
excerpts, John 18:3–6

When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes,
came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Psalm 27:2

God knew everything that would happen to His Son long before it took place.
