John 18:7 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Then asked he them again," (palin oun eperotesen autous) "Then again he questioned them," the weapon-carrying band, a second time, that there might be no mistake, that all His disciples might hear, that there might be no mistake in His identity, and to shield the disciples from attack.
2) "Whom seek ye?" (tina zeteite) "Whom do you all seek?" search for out here in the night; It is a question of irony and indictment of their ulterior motives in seizing Him in the quiet hours of the night, Mat 26:16; Luk 22:6.
3) "And they said, Jesus of Nazareth." (hoi de eipan lesoun ton Nazoraion) "Then they said (again), Jesus the Nazarene," as stated Joh 18:5.
