John 18: 19-24

The High Priest Questions Jesus

19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.

20 “I have spoken openly to the world,” Jesus replied. “I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret. 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said.”

22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby slapped him in the face. “Is this the way you answer the high priest?” he demanded.

23 “If I said something wrong,” Jesus replied, “testify as to what is wrong. But if I spoke the truth, why did you strike me?” 24 Then Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

Boy they just did everything wrong! I keep hearing Jesus say if u have eyes to see…and ears to hear…the Jews living at this time, hearing and seeing the corruption of their laws in order to stop Jesus had so many opportunities to believe the truth- yet they did not until after. I wonder how many of the thousands saved at Pentacost are among those? So thankful for the scholars that wrote these commentaries and that they r available to us- our God thinks of everything ?❤️?

Good morning, Paula! I used to steer away from anyone else’s opinion of the Bible…thinking that it would confuse me more than help me. Boy, was I wrong. In reality, I think I knew my foundation wasn’t very strong and I didn’t want to be taken under someone’s else’s wrong philosophies. There was some wisdom mixed in with insecurity. When I came across one that I really related to (David Guzik), it changed my reading. I love that he uses other scholars and commentators within this commentary because it helps me to be more open to the opinions of others.… Read more »

Yes, I agree completely! I often disagree with their conclusions but reading all the cultural facts and history that surrounded the incidents makes it much more understandable to me, and other times it opens my eyes to a truth I had not seen on my own.

All the years that I read my Bible I spent most of that time in the New Testament!! Especially in the Gospels, but reading along with the commentary bringing in new insites, or attention to certain points, I feel like on some level I am reading it for the first time!! Like both of You I don’t always agree with the views of the commentator!! But it always makes me think!!! It makes sense to me that the high priest didn’t follow the proper governing laws of that time, when dealing with Jesus!! They had no justification in the first… Read more »
