    It's really sad that peter denied Jesus
  • Bonita Kenney
    but when they came to force him to a cross, he offered himself for he came into this world to suffer, and went to the other world to reign. I believe Jesus was not a man of violence but he knew it was his time to suffer for our sins. In today's culture many would have done Jesus the same turn their backs due to fear and disbelief refusing accept the truth.

    Verse 37~If we are truly on the side of the truth we will make sure that we listen to Jesus by obeying his teachings found in God's Word the Bible.
  • Obbie Beal
    11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? (as it was then, Jehovah /GOD assigned a duty to Jesus; so is it in 2019 GOD assign us duties).
  • John of the Ghetto
    The perpetual play twixt good and evil played out perfectly. For evil was the crucifixion of God's son, for glory was the resurrection. We pray that God's will be done on earth, but mankind does evil, for he has the power on earth to choose. In order to choose good over evil one needs to know which is which. Lifetimes are spent in deciphering the good from the evil. Most never figure it out.?

    Verse 36~Jesus did not deny being a king because he is a king. He let Pilate know that he was king of a heavenly Kingdom.

    John 18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus came to die for all sinners. Jesus is the redeemer.
  • A disciple
    The Israelites DID NOT STEAL from the Egyptians; God took the Egyptians wealth and gave it to His people, for all that they suffered from the Egyptians. The LORD gave the lands of the Canaanites to His people, because the Canaanites were a completely ruined and filthy race; and God saw NOTHING in them worth saving! So shall it be when the time is up for the world; all shall be given to the Saints!

    V40, interesting that the Jews saved a thief. The Jews were thieves when leaving Egypt. When someone borrows something they refuse to return, that is theft. Steal from a Jew, the punishment is death. Deuteronomy 24:7 But if a Jew steals from a Jew when caught he just has to pay double, no death sentence.
  • Irene123
    Jn. 18:38 - "What is truth?" From the book, "The Bible; it's origin and Use" by Word Aflame Elective Series; "Truth, the revelation of God and all things as He sees them, can only be found in the Scriptures."
  • Irene123
    Jesus, in His earthly life, would not have 'signed' a contract with anybody. If He would have - He would also have called down angels to free Him.
  • Jacob
    Jesus mighty was certain that was why they fell down when he asks them who they seek, His mighty was certain that was why He put back one of them when Simon Peter struck him by sword, His mighty was certain that was He uses Pilate's words without fear of him as a judge. In that drama the ultimate goal was that the purpose of Him being on the earth must come to pass, that is the will of God. Amen
  • LeVonne
    John 18 represents so much chaos and strife encircling Jesus and the disciples. Betrayal, aggression, acts of violence and denial of who He is by his chosen disciples. All of this takes place in the dark. Yet, Jesus is the only one who remains fixed and focused. Hallelujah! What a Savior! The "Light" of the world.

    For as many that are under the bondage and captivity of the enemy, get yourself loose today by the word of God in John 18: 7-8. This is because before Jesus surredered his life to the arresters, he signed a contract with them, the contract is found in verse 8 which says 'If ye seek me, therefore let these go their way ' Beloved, receive the divine mandate today and be set free from that long age bondage. But, you must surrender your life to christ first. God bless you.
  • Uruakpa Anthonia
    Jesus purposely laid down himself to be arrested because at that point they could not recognise Jesus. It was Jesus who asked them 'Whom seek ye? ' Even when Jesus said 'I am He ', they all fell to the ground. This simply shows that they don 't have the power to arrest Jesus but because Jesus knows his purpose on earth and it was time to fulfill that purpose, he simply laid down himself to be arrested.

    36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice......Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.....The Lord of lords and the King of kings.....God Bless...
  • Dennis for verse 18
    The same servants and officers who had gone to the garden to abduct Jesus...?
  • Dennis for verse 15
    The other disciple was probably John. He was the disciple whom Jesus loved, the one who laid his head upon Jesus at the supper, not referring to himself by name.
  • Lillian Vernon
    John chapter 18 reminds me of how far the Lord went for me. Jesus could have answered all the questions the scribes and Pharisees asked but He didn 't because He knew what great accomplishment the shedding of His blood would bring. Thank You Jehovah for sending The Lamb to die for a sinner like me. Prepare me to meet You one day. Let me live a life of Christ-like worth.
  • Deborah
    It was for this purpose JESUS came into this world, that we might be set free from our sins and one day live with HIM in Heaven. Thank you Lord for all that you had suffered for us. So please let us live our lives the way GOD has instructed us to in His Holy Bible to demonstrate our love and appreciation for what JESUS had suffered for us. Thank you JESUS for all that you have done and is still doing for us AMEN.
  • Fred
    Ray The book of James says that one day every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord. When He said "I am " The Holy name of God even demons trembled, not only the disciples and the pharisees, His name is Power. The word of God says we have the authority to cast out demons in His name, no matter what language. They will have to leave inHIs name.
  • Elizabeth for verse 40
    His Blood is to deliver the sinfull
  • Elizabeth for verse 40
    It was just to fullfill that His cross will even release people like Barrabas from prison their Sins
  • Marcus
    Ch 18 for me is the absolute most glorious account of maintaining ones peace with God of knowing who YOU are before YOUR Creator...being content in God in the face of well...possibly nearly the whole world accusing you falsely...and then murdering you most violently on the final false judgement. This portion of scripture I really do feel all that was going on in the spirit world or all realities changing can we only in part understand. So many life applications here! I 'm glad God gave Christ the Spirit without measurie to go through all that for....well...for me.
  • Chika
    Let us endeavour to make our accuser ashame as CHRIST did..
  • Rev. Autrey for verse 38
    Verses 38 40 "What is the truth? ' Pilate asked. Then he went out to the people and told them, 'He is not guilty of any crime. But you have a custom of asking me to release someone from prison each year at Passover. So if you want me to, I 'll release the King of the Jews. ' But they shouted back, 'No! Not this man, but Barabbas! ... " But Pilaste could have released Jesus, but he didn 't. And in his rebellion he made the Scriptures come true. Isiah 28 says, "This is what the Sovereign Lord says 'Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem. It is firm, a tested and precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be disappointed. ' " And Isaiah 8 14 says, "He will keep you safe. But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. " This is talking about the Lord Almighty as we can see in verse 13. This proves that Jesus is the Lord Almighty, and the stone that makes people stumble and fall. It was he, himself, who stood before Pilate that terrible day. And Pilate stumbled over all over him and fell to his destruction. And if we reject Jesus as our God we will fall too. People reject Jesus by placing another meanine on the word LORD. In their effort to reject his DIVINITY they make the word mean only a master or ruler in their lives. But Isiah 40 equated the word LORD to to word GOD. It specificially says, "Make a highway through the wilderness for our LORD. And make a road through the desert for our GOD. " This is what we see in most churches today. They are quick to call Jesus Lord or master, but they will not say that he is God. And in doing so, they fall as surely as Pilate fell that day. See, here if the point. Only God can save us. And if we say that Jesus is not God we have no salvation. Ask God to help upu understand!
  • His kingdom will be part of this world on his return with his legions of Angel servants.

    I believe John 18:15’s another disciple was John humbly referring to himself. I believe He doesn’t make mention of his own name because he’d rather place emphasis on Jesus and the other disciples. John would make a similar reference again in chapter 20:2 where he mentions the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and in chapter 20:3 that other disciple.
  • Fred Griffin
    A powerful presentation to believers explaining his coming and living to full fill what God had sent Jesus to the world to do.
  • who was the other disciple with peter
