    VERSE (8) -
    Isa 53:6 Eph 5:25

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:8

    Respondi Jess: Ya os he dicho que YO SOY; pues si a mí me buscis, dejad ir a stos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 18:8

    Verse 8. Let these go their way] These
    words are rather words of authority, than words of entreaty. I voluntarily give myself up to you, but you must not molest one of these my disciples. At your peril injure them.

    Let them go about their business. I have already given you a sufficient proof of my power: I will not exert it in my own behalf, for I will lay down my life for the sheep; but I will not permit you to injure the least of these. It was certainly the supreme power of Christ that kept the soldiers and the mob from destroying all the disciples present, when Peter had given them such provocation, in cutting off the ear of Malchus. There were probably no other disciples with Christ than Peter, James, and John, at this time. see Matt. xxvi. 37; Mark xiii. 33.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he , etc.] This he said, upbraiding them with their stupidity; signifying he was ready to deliver himself up into their hands; and which he did with intrepidity and calmness, only on this condition, with this proviso for his disciples; if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way : Christ was about to suffer for them, and therefore it was not just that they should suffer too; nor was it proper that they should suffer with him, lest their sufferings should be thought to be a part of the price of redemption. Besides, their suffering time was not come, and they had other work to do: this shows the love of Christ to his disciples, and his care of them, and also his power, and that he could have saved himself as well as them. Moreover, these words may be considered as an emblem and pledge of the acquittance and discharge of Gods elect, through the suretyship engagements, and performances of Christ, who drew near to God on their account, substituted himself in their room, and undertook for them in the council and covenant of peace, and laid himself under obligation to pay their debts, to satisfy for their sins, to bring in an everlasting righteousness, to keep and preserve them in this world, and to make them happy in another. Accordingly, in the fulness of time he was made under the law, and stood in their place and stead, and was taken, suffered, died, and rose again. Now, as there was a discharge and acquittance of them from eternity, a non-imputation of sin to them, and a secret letting of them go upon the suretyship engagements of Christ, and in virtue thereof, a passing by, and over, the sins of the Old Testament saints so there was an open acquittance and discharge of them all upon the apprehension, sufferings, death, and resurrection of Christ; complete deliverance from wrath and condemnation being obtained, and a full title to eternal glory made. Moreover, these words may be considered not only and merely as spoken to the Jews, but as addressed to the law and justice of God; or however, as having some respect to them, while directed to the others; for justice finding the sins of all the elect upon Christ, on whom the Father had laid them, and Christ had took them upon himself, was seeking for, and about to demand satisfaction of him for them; and he being under the law, and coming into the world to fulfil it, in the room and stead of his people, was about to bear the curse of it; wherefore seeing this was the case, he insists upon it, that they who were convicted of the law as transgressors, and held under it as condemned criminals and malefactors, and who were liable, as considered in themselves, to be seized upon by the justice of God, and to have the sentence of condemnation and death executed upon them, might be discharged and let go; and accordingly, upon the satisfaction made by Christ, this is the case: Christs people are no longer under the law, as a ministration of condemnation and death, nor liable to suffer the vindictive wrath of God; they are become free from the curses of a righteous law, and are let go by divine justice, and will never suffer the strokes of it, neither in this world nor in that to come; there is no demand to be made upon them, either by the law or justice of God; there is no wrath or punishment will be inflicted on them, either here or hereafter; and they may, and shall go their way into everlasting life, when time shall be no more with them, neither law nor justice having anything to say to the contrary.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 -
    Sin began in the garden of Eden, there the curse was pronounced, ther the Redeemer was promised; and in a garden that promised Seed entere into conflict with the old serpent. Christ was buried also in a garden Let us, when we walk in our gardens, take occasion from thence to mediate on Christ's sufferings in a garden. Our Lord Jesus, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth and asked, Whom seek ye When the people would have forced him to a crown, he withdrew, ch 6:15, but when they came to force him to a cross, he offered himself for he came into this world to suffer, and went to the other world to reign. He showed plainly what he could have done; when he struck the down he could have struck them dead, but he would not do so. It mus have been the effect of Divine power, that the officers and soldier let the disciples go away quietly, after the resistance which had bee offered. Christ set us an example of meekness in sufferings, and pattern of submission to God's will in every thing that concerns us. It is but a cup, a small matter. It is a cup that is given us; suffering are gifts. It is given us by a Father, who has a father's authority and does us no wrong; a father's affection, and means us no hurt. From the example of our Saviour we should learn how to receive our lighte afflictions, and to ask ourselves whether we ought to oppose ou Father's will, or to distrust his love. We were bound with the cords of our iniquities, with the yoke of our transgressions. Christ, being mad a sin-offering for us, to free us from those bonds, himself submitte to be bound for us. To his bonds we owe our liberty; thus the Son make us free.
