People's Bible Notes for John 18:32


Joh 18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled. Had the Jews been allowed to put Christ to death, he would have been stoned, as Stephen was, by a mob in Jerusalem, stoning being the usual Jewish method of execution, but he had "signified what death he should die" (Joh 12:32 Mt 20:18-19) and had declared that he should be crucified.
