Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Luke 22:54-62

We have here the melancholy story of Peter's denying his Master, at the time when he was arraigned before the high priest, and those that were of the cabal, that were ready to receive the prey, and to prepare the evidence for his arraignment, as soon as it was day, before the great sanhedrim, Luke 22:66. But notice is not taken here, as was in the other evangelists, of Christ's being now upon his examination before the high priest, only of his being brought into the high priest's house, Luke... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Luke 22:59

And about the space of one hour after ,.... After the first assault, or rather after the second: another confidently affirmed ; who was one of them that stood by the fireside, and heard what had passed; and not only so, but was a kinsman to him, whose ear Peter had cut off, and who had seen him in the garden with Christ, and therefore with all assurance asserted it, as a matter of fact, as an unquestionable truth, and beyond all doubt: saying of a truth, this fellow also was with him ... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 22:47-63

Christianity and violence. The use of the sword by Peter, and the presence of "swords and staves" in the hands of the officers, suggest to us the connection between Jesus Christ (and his disciples) and the employment of violence; and this both by them and against them. I. THE UNSEEMLINESS OF VIOLENCE USED AGAINST JESUS CHRIST AND HIS DISCIPLES . It is true that there was something worse than the weapons of violence in that garden; the traitor's kiss was very much... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 22:54-71

Christ's trials in the high priest's palace. The agony of Gethsemane is over, and our Lord has met his enemies in the calmness of real courage. He allows himself to be led to the palace of the high priest, and we have now to consider all the trials through which he passed there. The first of these is from Peter. Love to the Master keeps the disciple in the train of the procession, and even leads him to linger without until through John's good offices he gets into the hall. But, alas!... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 22:59

For he is a Galilaean . The strong provincial dialect of the fisherman of the Lake of Galilee at once told these Jerusalem Jews, accustomed to the peculiar pronunciation of the Galilee pilgrims at the Passover Feast, that the man whom they suspected certainly came from the same province as Jesus the Accused. read more

Luke 22:54-62 . Then took they him, and brought him into the high-priest’s house See on Matthew 26:57; and Mark 14:53; Mark 14:51.

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Luke 22:54-65

152. At the high priest’s house (Matthew 26:57-75; Mark 14:53-72; Luke 22:54-65; John 18:12-27)Annas and his son-in-law Caiaphas apparently lived in the same house. Annas had been the previous high priest and, though replaced by Caiaphas, was still well respected and influential. Jesus’ captors took him to Annas first, while Peter and John, who had followed at a distance, waited in the courtyard. By now it was well past midnight and into the early hours of the morning (John 18:12-18; Luke... read more
