RF JOH 18:1 The Betrayal.
When Jesus had said this, He went along with His disciples across the brook of Kedron, where there was a garden, into which He Himself and His disciples entered.
RF JOH 18:2 Now Judas, who was betraying Him, also knew the spot, because Jesus often retired there with His disciples.
RF JOH 18:3 Judas therefore taking the troops, and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees, proceeded there, with lanterns, torches, and arms.
RF JOH 18:4 Jesus then, knowing all the events that were coming upon Him, advanced, and asked them: "For whom are you looking?"
RF JOH 18:5 "Jesus the Nazarene," was their reply. "I AM," Jesus answered them. Judas, who was betraying Him, was also standing with them.
RF JOH 18:6 No sooner then had He said, "I AM," than they started backward, and fell to the ground.
RF JOH 18:7 He therefore asked them again: "For whom are you looking?"
"Jesus the Nazarene," replied they.
RF JOH 18:8 "I have told you," replied Jesus, "that I AM. If you therefore want Me, let these go away."
RF JOH 18:9 Thus was verified what He had spoken: "Of those whom You entrusted to Me, I have not lost a single one."
RF JOH 18:10 Simon Peter, however, having a sword, drew it; and struck the servant of the High Priest, and cut off the tip of his right ear. The name of that servant was Malchus.
RF JOH 18:11 Jesus, however, said to Peter: "Put the sword into its scabbard. Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given Me?"
RF JOH 18:12 The Judean Trial.
The troops then, headed by their colonel, and the Judean officers, arrested Jesus, and having bound Him,
RF JOH 18:13 they conducted Him in the first instance to Annas; because he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was High Priest for that one year.
RF JOH 18:14 Now it was Caiaphas who had advised the Judeans that "It is profitable for one man to die on behalf of the people."
RF JOH 18:15 Simon Peter followed Jesus, however, as well as one other disciple. That disciple, being known to the High Priest, entered the court of the High Priest along with Jesus;
RF JOH 18:16 but Peter was standing near the outer door. The other disciple, who was known to the High Priest, accordingly went out, and spoke to the porteress, and brought Peter inside.
RF JOH 18:17 The girl who acted as porteress then asked Peter, "Are you also one of the disciples of this Man?"
"I am not," was his reply.
RF JOH 18:18 Now the servants and officials having made a charcoal fire, were standing round and warming themselves, for it was cold; and Peter was also standing and warming himself along with them.
RF JOH 18:19 The High Priest was then examining Jesus relative to His disciples, and His teaching.
RF JOH 18:20 Jesus answered him: "I have spoken publicly to the world. I constantly taught in synagogue and in the temple, where all the Judeans are accustomed to assemble; and in secrecy I have said nothing.
RF JOH 18:21 Why do you ask Me? Question those who heard what I said to them. They know what I said."
RF JOH 18:22 When He answered thus, one of the attendant officials struck Jesus a blow with his hand, saying, "Do you answer the High Priest in that fashion?"
RF JOH 18:23 Jesus replied to him: "If I have said anything wrong, bring proof of the wrong; but if properly, why do you strike Me?"
RF JOH 18:24 Annas then remanded Him bound to Caiaphas, the High Priest.
RF JOH 18:25 Peter Denies His Master.
Simon Peter meantime was standing and warming himself. They therefore asked him, "Are you not also one of His disciples?" He denied it, and said, "I am not."
RF JOH 18:26 One of the servants of the High Priest, a relative of the man the tip of whose ear Peter had cut off, exclaimed, "Did I not see you with Him in the garden?"
RF JOH 18:27 Peter then denied it again: and at once the bugle sounded.1
RF JOH 18:28 The Accusation Before Pilate.
They then led Jesus from before Caiaphas to the Palace; and it was yet early: but they did not themselves enter the Palace, lest they should be polluted, and be unable to partake of the Passover.
RF JOH 18:29 Pilate therefore went out to them, and asked, "What charge do you bring against this Man?"
RF JOH 18:30 They answered him, "If He had not been a criminal, we should not have handed Him over to you."
1. see John 13.38
RF JOH 18:31 "Take Him yourselves, and try Him according to your own law," said Pilate, in reply to them.
RF JOH 18:32 The Judeans then said to him: "It is not permitted to us to put any one to death." [Thus was fulfilled the saying of Jesus, foretelling the nature of the death He was about to die.]
RF JOH 18:33 Pilate accordingly re-entered the Palace, and calling Jesus, asked Him, "Are You the King of the Judeans?"
RF JOH 18:34 "Do you say this from yourself, or did others tell it you about Me?" asked Jesus, in reply.
RF JOH 18:35 Pilate exclaimed: "Am I a Judean! Your own nation and the chief priests handed You over to me. What have You done?"
RF JOH 18:36 Jesus answered: "My Kingdom is not from this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, then My officers would have fought, so that I might not have been handed over to the Judeans; but, however, My Kingdom is not here."
RF JOH 18:37 "You are a king, then?" Pilate remarked to Him. "You say that I am a king," replied Jesus. "I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this, that I might give evidence to the truth. Every one that is of the truth listens to Me."
RF JOH 18:38 Pilate asked Him: "What is truth?" Having said this, he again went out to the Judeans, and said to them, "I can find nothing criminal about Him.
RF JOH 18:39 But it is a custom with you that I should liberate someone for you at the Passover. Is it your desire, therefore, that I should liberate for you the King of the Judeans?"
RF JOH 18:40 They accordingly yelled out in reply, "Not this Man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.
