Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Luke 22:63-71

We are here told, as before in the other gospels, I. How our Lord Jesus was abused by the servants of the high priest. The abjects, the rude and barbarous servants, gathered themselves together against him. They that held Jesus, that had him in custody till the court sat, they mocked him, and smote him (Luke 22:63), they would not allow him to repose himself one minute, though he had had no sleep all night, nor to compose himself, though he was hurried to his trial, and no time given him to... read more

William Barclay's Daily Study Bible - Luke 22:63-71

22:63-71 The men who were holding Jesus mocked him and beat him. They blindfolded him and asked him, "Prophesy! Who is it who hit you?" And many another insulting word they spoke to him. And when it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people came together, the chief priests and the scribes; and they led him away to the Sanhedrin, saying, "Tell us if you are God's anointed one." He said to them, "If I tell you, you will not believe me; if I ask you, you will not answer. But from... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Luke 22:70

Then said they all ,.... The whole sanhedrim, with one voice, being greedy to lay hold on, and improve these words, that they might have something to lay to his charge: art thou the Son of God? for they knew that the Messiah, or the son of man, that was to sit at the right hand of God, and come in the clouds of heaven, was the Son of God: and he said unto them, ye say that I am ; or rather the words may be rendered, "ye say it", and ye say right; it is the very truth: "for I am";... 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 22:70

Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? Now bringing forward the loftier title formerly suppressed (in Luke 22:67 ). "And art thou, then, dost thou, poor Man, vain in thy imagining, dost thou assert thyself to be the Son of God?" So Stier. And he said unto them, Ye say that I am . This form of reply is not used in Greek, but is frequent in rabbinic. By such an answer the one interrogated accepts as his own affirmation the question put to him in its entirety. We have,... read more

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Luke 22:66-71

Luke 22:66-71. And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people, and the chief-priests, &c., came together When the band of soldiers arrived at the high-priest’s with Jesus, they found many of the chief-priests, and the scribes, and the elders assembled there. (Mark 14:53.) Some persons of distinction, however, may have been absent, whose coming the rest would wait for. Wherefore, although the soldiers brought Jesus to the high- priest’s a while after midnight, his trial did not... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Luke 22:66-71

153. The Sanhedrin’s judgment (Matthew 27:1-2; Mark 15:1; Luke 22:66-71)It had been a long night for Jesus - the Passover meal, the institution of the Lord’s Supper, the washing of the disciples’ feet, the lengthy teaching in the upper room, the walk to Gethsemane, the agonizing time in the garden, the arrest, the walk back to the city, and the questioning and rough handling at the high priest’s house. It was now daybreak, which meant that a legal sentence could be passed. Jesus therefore was... read more
