Joh 18:1
18:1 When {1} 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) Christ goes of his own accord into a garden, which his
     betrayer knew, to be taken, so that by his obedience he
     might take away the sin that entered into the world by one
     man's rebellion, and that in a garden.

Joh 18:3
18:3 {2} Judas then, having received a band [of men] and
     officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh
     thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

 (2) Christ who was innocent was taken as a wicked person, that
     we who are wicked might be let go as innocent.

Joh 18:4
18:4 {3} Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come
     upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

 (3) Christ's person (but not his power) was bound by his
     adversaries, but only when and how he desired.

Joh 18:8
18:8 {4} Jesus answered, I have told you that I am [he]: if
     therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

 (4) Christ does not neglect the office of a good pastor, not
     even in his greatest danger.

Joh 18:10
18:10 {5} Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the
      high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The
      servant's name was Malchus.

 (5) We ought to contain our zeal for God within the bounds of
     our calling.

Joh 18:13
18:13 {6} And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in
      law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

 (6) Christ is brought before an earthly high priest to be
     condemned for our blasphemies, that we might be acquitted
     by the everlasting high Priest himself.

Joh 18:15
18:15 {7} 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.

 (7) A graphic example of the fragility of men, even the best of
     them, when they are left to themselves.

Joh 18:19
18:19 {8} The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and
      of his doctrine.

 (8) Christ defends his cause, but only slightly, not that he
     would withdraw himself from death, but to show that he was
     condemned as someone who was innocent.

Joh 18:25
18:25 {9} And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said
      therefore unto him, Art not thou also [one] of his
      disciples? He denied [it], and said, I am not.

 (9) After men have once fallen, they cannot only not lift
     themselves up by their own strength, but also they fall
     more and more into a worse condition, until they are raised
     up again by a new power from God.

Joh 18:28
18:28 {10} Then led they Jesus from {a} 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.

 (10) The Son of God is brought before the judgment seat of an
      earthly and profane man, in whom there is found much less
      wickedness than in the rulers of the people of God.  A
      graphic image of the wrath of God against sin, and in
      addition of his great mercy, and last of all of his most
      severe judgment against the stubborn condemners of his
      grace when it is offered unto them.
      (a) From Caiaphas' house.

Joh 18:31
18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him
      according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him,
      {b} It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:

      (b) For judgments of life and death were taken from them
          forty years before the destruction of the temple.

Joh 18:32
18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he
      spake, {c} signifying what death he should die.

      (c) For Christ had foretold that he would be crucified.

Joh 18:36
18:36 {11} 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.

      (11) Christ affirms his spiritual kingdom, but rejects a
           worldly one.

Joh 18:38
18:38 {12} Pilate saith unto him, {d} What is truth? And when he
      had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith
      unto them, I find in him no fault [at all].

 (12) It was required that Christ should be pronounced innocent,
      but nonetheless, in that he took upon himself our person,
      he was to be condemned as a most wicked man.
      (d) He speaks this disdainfully and scoffingly, and not by
          way of asking a question.

Joh 18:40
18:40 Then {e} cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but
      Barabbas.  Now Barabbas was a robber.

      (e) Literally, "made a great and foul voice".
