18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

1 After offering the prayer Jesus went out with His disciples to a place on the other side of the Ravine Kidron, where there was a garden which He entered with His disciples.

18:2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus frequently resorted thither with his disciples.
2 Now, Judas, who meant to betray Him, knew the place: for Jesus often met there with His disciples.
18:3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, comes thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
3 Then Judas, with a detachment of soldiers and some of the Temple officers sent by the High Priests and Pharisees, came to the garden carrying lanterns, torches, and weapons.
18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek all of you?
4 Jesus, knowing all that was about to take place, came forward and asked them, "Whom do you seek?"
18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus says unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
5 "Jesus the Nazarene," was their answer. Whereupon Jesus said, "I am [He]." And Judas, the one who betrayed Him, was standing there with them.
18:6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
6 As soon as He said, `I am [He],´ the group who sought Jesus fell backward to the ground.
18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek all of you? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
7 Again He asked them, "Whom do you seek?" The officials responded, "Jesus the Nazarene."
18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore all of you seek me, let these go their way:
8 Jesus said, "I told you, I am [He]. Therefore, if you only seek me, let my followers go their way."
18:9 That the saying (o. logos) might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Of them which you gave me have I lost none.
9 In this statement, the words would be fulfilled in which He said, `Of those whom you gave me, I have lost none.´
18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and stroke the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up your sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father has given me, shall I not drink it?
sheath θηκην (2336)
11 Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword back to your side. Shall I refuse to drink from the cup which the Father has given me?"
18:12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
12 So the Roman cohort and their commander with the Judean authorities arrested Jesus and had Him bound.
18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
13 They led Him away to Annas at first: for he was the father-in-law to Caiaphas who was High Priest for that year.
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
14 (This was Caiaphas who had given his countrymen the advice which was to say, it is in your interest that one man should die for the people.)
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
15 Simon Peter followed after Jesus, as did another disciple. The other disciple went into the court with Jesus because that disciple was known to the High Priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spoke unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
16 But Peter stood outside at the door of the Priest in charge that night until the other disciple came out and spoke to the portress about letting Peter come in.
18:17 Then says the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Are not you also one of this man's disciples? He says, I am not.
17 This prompted the portress who kept watch at the door to ask Peter, "Are you not one of this bound man's disciples?" He said, "I am not."
18:18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
18 While the servants and authorities stood before a fire of coals warming themselves from the cold, Peter stood close by warming himself also.
18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
19 Meanwhile, the High Priest was questioning Jesus about His teaching and His disciples.
18:20 Jesus answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
20 Jesus explained, "I have spoken openly to the world. I have taught in the synagogue or in the Temple where Judeans come together, and I have said nothing in secret.
18:21 Why ask you me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
21 Why do you ask me? Why not question the people who heard me. They would be my witnesses."
18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answer you the high priest so?
22 When He said this, one of the officers standing there slapped Him with his palm, saying, "Is that any way to answer the High Priest?"
18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smite you me?
23 Jesus answered, "If I said something wrong, where is my evil intent; but if in the right, why did you strike me?"
18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
24 Then, Annas had Him bound over to Caiaphas, the High Priest.
18:25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Are not you also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
25 As Simon Peter remained around the fire, the others warming themselves asked, "Are you also one of His disciples?" Again he said, "I am not."
18:26 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, says, Did not I see you in the garden with him?
26 A servant of the High Priest who was related to the man whose ear Peter had severed, spoke up and said, "Were you not in the garden with Him."
18:27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
27 Peter was in denial for the third time, and immediately the cock crowed.
18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
28 Next, the Judean authorities took Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium. Since morning had come, they decided not to enter the judgment hall for fear of [ceremonial] defilement which would negate their Passover celebration.
18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring all of you against this man?
formal charge κατηγοριαν (2724)
29 The Roman Prefect went out to them and inquired, "What charge do you bring against this man?"
18:30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a villain, we would not have delivered him up unto you.
30 They responded, "If this man had not committed a crime, we would not have bound Him over to you."
18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take all of you him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
31 "You take Him," said the Prefect, "and judge Him by your Law." The Judean leaders replied, "We have no power to put any man to death."
18:32 That the saying (o. logos) of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying what death he should die.
32 These words were to fulfill the prediction of Jesus about His manner of death.
18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Are you the King of the Jews?
LATIN (2nd hand, Codex D) [in] praetorium Pilatus
33 Entering the Praetorium again, Pilatus, the Roman Prefect, called to Jesus, "Are you the King of these Judeans?"
18:34 Jesus answered him, Says you this thing of yourself, or did others tell it you of me?
34 "Do you say this of your own accord, or did others tell you about me?"
18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you unto me: what have you done?
35 "Am I Judean?" exclaimed Pilatus; "Your own Nation and the High Priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?"
Nation: Judaea (Roman Province)
18:36 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 behind.
36 "My Kingdom," replied Jesus, "is not of this world. If my Kingdom did belong to this world, my followers would have fought to keep me from being handed over to the Judeans. But, truthfully, my Kingdom is not of this realm."
18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You say[s] 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 hears my voice.
37 Pilatus interrupted, "Then you are a king!" Jesus said, "Yes, you say I am a king. I was born into the world for this purpose: to give witness to the truth. All friends of the truth listen to my voice."

18:38 Pilate says unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and says unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
38 "What is truth?" said Pilatus. And having said this, he went out again to the Judean leaders and told them, "I find no crime in Him.
