Bible Commentary for John 18:14

Wesley's Notes for John 18:14


18:13 Annas had been high priest before his son - in - law Caiaphas. And though he had for some time resigned that office, yet they paid so much regard to his age and experience, that they brought Christ to Annas first. But we do not read of any thing remarkable which passed at the house of Annas; for, which reason, his being carried thither is omitted by the other evangelists. #Mt 26:57|; Mr 14:53; Lu 22:54.
