John 18:10 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 Suddenly, Peter took out his sword and struck the high priest’s servant, slashing off his right ear![a] The servant’s name was Malchus.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. John 18:10 This event is a vivid picture of what happens when we act impetuously and in anger. We hinder people’s ability to hear our message (we cut off their ear) when we walk in angry offense toward others.
  2. John 18:10 Malchus’ name means “king.” Perhaps at the moment of healing his ear, Jesus personally revealed himself to Malchus in a supernatural way, the King who healed a king. Jesus is the true servant to the High Priest. We can imagine Jesus reaching out his hand to help Malchus up. And in an instant, Malchus believes. Malchus’ ears, both of them, are healed.
