John 18:1 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

JESUS COMES TO GETHSEMANE V. 1

1) "When Jesus had spoken these words," (tauta eipon lesous) "When Jesus had said these things," the things regarding "His going to His Father's house," (Joh 14:1-31); "The vine and the branches," (Joh 15:1-27); "The sending of the Holy Spirit," (Joh 16:1-33); and "His intercession Prayer" a) For His restored glory with the Father, b) For His church people, and c) For those who should believe through their word, (Joh 17:1-26).

2) "He went forth with his disciples," (ekselthen sun tois mathetais autou) "He then went out and away with his disciples," out of Jerusalem, perhaps the upper room where He had observed the last Passover, then instituted the New Supper, called the Lord's Supper, a memorial that was to be observed by His church followers in breaking bread and drinking of the cup, till He comes again, Mat 26:26-30; Mar 14:22-26; Luk 22:17-20; 1Co 11:23-26.

3) "Over the brook Cedron," (peran tou cheimarrou tou Kedron) "Across the babbling or torrent of the brook Kedron," (Gk. form of Kidron) running through the valley of Jehoshaphat, East of the old city wall, between the old city and the Mount of Olives, 2Sa 15:23; 1Ki 2:37; Jer 31:40.

4) "Where was a garden," (hopou hen kepos) "Where there was located 'a garden," a garden known as Gethsemane, which means "oil press," garden of our Lord's agony, Mat 26:36; Mar 14:32; Luk 22:39. Mark describes it as (Gk. chorion) meaning a country place or country estate, perhaps owned by a friend of Jesus.

5) "Into which he entered, and his disciples." (eis hon eiselthen autos kai ho mathetai autou) ''Into which both he and his disciples entered," together, the place where three times He prayed in agony to the Father regarding the cup of suffering facing Him, that He was to drink that day, Mat 26:36-46; Mar 14:32-42; Luk 22:39-46. The account of these petitions are not recounted by John, nor the blessing and breaking of the bread and the cup at the institution of the Lord's Supper.
