Bible Commentary for John 18:5

Wesley's Notes for John 18:5


18:3 A troop of soldiers - A cohort of Roman foot.

18:6 As soon as he said, I am he, they went backward and fell to the ground - How amazing is it, that they should renew the assault, after so sensible an experience both of his power and mercy! But probably the priests among them might persuade themselves and their attendants, that this also was done by Beelzebub; and that it was through the providence of God, not the indulgence of Jesus, that they received no farther damage.
