    VERSE (36) -
    1Ti 6:13

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:36

    Respondi Jess: Mi Reino no es de este mundo; si de este mundo fuera mi Reino, mis servidores pelearían para que yo no fuera entregado a los judíos; ahora, pues, mi Reino no es de aquí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 18:36

    Verse 36. My
    kingdom is not of this world] It is purely spiritual and Divine. If it had been of a secular nature, then my servants would have contended-they would have opposed force with force, as the kingdoms of this world do in their wars; but as my kingdom as not of this world, therefore no resistance has been made. Eusebius relates, Hist. Eccles. lib. iii. c. 20, that "The relatives of our Lord were brought before Domitian, and interrogated whether they were of the family of David; and what sort the kingdom of Christ was, and where it would appear? They answered, that this kingdom was neither of this world, nor of an earthly nature; that it was altogether heavenly and angelical; and that it would not take place till the end of the world."

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 36.
    Jesus answered, my kingdom is not of this world , etc.] By saying which, he tacitly owns he was a king: as such he was set up, and anointed by his Father from everlasting; was prophesied of in the Old Testament; declared by the angel, both when he brought the news of his conception, and of his birth; was owned by many, who knew him to be so in the days of his flesh; and since his resurrection, ascension, and session at Gods right hand, more manifestly appears to be one: he also hereby declares, that he had a kingdom; by which he means, not his natural and universal kingdom, as God, and the Creator and Governor of all things; but his mediatorial kingdom, administered both in the days of his flesh, and after his resurrection; which includes the whole Gospel dispensation, Christs visible church state on earth, and the whole election of grace; it takes in that which will be at the close of time, in the latter day, which will be more spiritual, and in which Christ will reign before his ancients gloriously; and also the kingdom of God, or of heaven, even the ultimate glory: the whole of which is not of this world; the subjects of Christs kingdom are not of the world, they are chosen and called out of it; the kingdom itself does not appear in worldly pomp and splendour, nor is it supported by worldly force, nor administered by worldly laws; nor does it so much regard the outward, as the inward estates of men; it promises no worldly emoluments, or temporal rewards. Christ does not say it is not in this world, but it is not of it; and therefore will not fail, when this world does, and the kingdoms thereof. Every thing that is carnal, sensual, and worldly, must be removed from our conceptions of Christs kingdom, here or hereafter: and to this agrees what some Jewish writers say of the Messiah, and his affairs; the Messiah (they say f693 ) is separated from the world, because he is absolutely intellectual; but the world is corporeal; how then should the Messiah be in this world, when the world is corporeal, and ymg al yhla awh jymh yn[ , the business of the Messiah is divine, and not corporeal? And since this was the case, Caesar, or any civil government, had no reason to be uneasy on account of his being a king, and having a kingdom; since his kingdom and interests did not in the least break in upon, or injure any others: and that this was the nature of his kingdom, he proves by the following reason; if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight that I should not be delivered to the Jews : if Christs kingdom had been a worldly one, set up on worldly views, and governed with worldly policy, and was to answer some worldly ends, Christ would have had servants enough among the Jews, who would have declared for him, and took up arms in his favour against the Romans; his own disciples would not have suffered him to have been betrayed into the hands of the Jews by Judas; nor would he have hindered them from attempting his rescue, as he did Peter; nor would they suffer him now to be delivered by Pilate into their hands, to put him to death; since they had such a Prince at the head of them, who, was he to make use of his power, was able to drive all the Roman forces before them out of the nation, and oblige a general submission among the Jews, to the sceptre of his kingdom: but now is my kingdom not from hence ; it does not rise out of, nor proceed upon, nor is it supported by worldly principles, wherefore none of the above methods are made use of.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 33-40 -
    Art thou the King of the Jews? that King of the Jews who has been s long expected? Messiah the Prince; art thou he? Dost thou call thysel so, and wouldest thou be thought so? Christ answered this question with another; not for evasion, but that Pilate might consider what he did He never took upon him any earthly power, never were any traitorou principles or practices laid to him. Christ gave an account of the nature of his kingdom. Its nature is not worldly; it is a kingdo within men, set up in their hearts and consciences; its riche spiritual, its power spiritual, and it glory within. Its supports ar not worldly; its weapons are spiritual; it needed not, nor used, forc to maintain and advance it, nor opposed any kingdom but that of sin an Satan. Its object and design are not worldly. When Christ said, In a the Truth, he said, in effect, I am a King. He conquers by the convincing evidence of truth; he rules by the commanding power of truth. The subjects of this kingdom are those that are of the truth Pilate put a good question, he said, What is truth? When we search the Scriptures, and attend the ministry of the word, it must be with thi inquiry, What is truth? and with this prayer, Lead me in thy truth into all truth. But many put this question, who have not patience to preserve in their search after truth; or not humility enough to receiv it. By this solemn declaration of Christ's innocence, it appears, tha though the Lord Jesus was treated as the worst of evil-doers, he neve deserved such treatment. But it unfolds the design of his death; tha he died as a Sacrifice for our sins. Pilate was willing to please all sides; and was governed more by worldly wisdom than by the rules of justice. Sin is a robber, yet is foolishly chosen by many rather tha Christ, who would truly enrich us. Let us endeavour to make ou accusers ashamed as Christ did; and let us beware of crucifying Chris afresh __________________________________________________________________
