"Jesus then comforts Pilate, who in the Coptic and Ethiopian churches is regarded as a saint, saying, “Oh Pilate, you have been deemed worthy of a great grace because you have shown a good disposition to me.” Jesus also showed Pilate that he can escape if he chose to. “Pilate, then, looked at Jesus and, behold, he became incorporeal: He did not see him for a long time …”

Judas’ kiss is the means by which the solders can identify Jesus, the text states. “Then the Jews said to Judas: How shall we arrest him [Jesus], for he does not have a single shape but his appearance changes. Sometimes he is ruddy, sometimes he is white, sometimes he is red, sometimes he is wheat coloured, sometimes he is pallid like ascetics, sometimes he is a youth, sometimes an old man …”

Dr van den Broek notes this interpretation of Judas’ kiss may come from Origen’s Contra Celsum which states that “to those who saw him [Jesus] he did not appear alike to all.”

Or how he managed to escape dangerous situations and wonder around unnoticed through the crowd?

He may have been beamed up to deep space 9... You never know, they had shape shifters there.

Or in the craziness of a riled up crowed his apostles telling people to chill (I'd guess) he just slipped out.
