Jesu, Juva


with one comment

In my previous post I suggested an outline for part of Luke 22.

In this passage, there is an interesting connection between the sword and the ear. The ear is the organ of hearing the master’s instruction. Peter’s sword impaired Malchus’s ability to hear Jesus’s word and command. Jesus restored his ability to hear, so that the greater sword, the word (Eph 6:17, Heb 4:12) could enter his ear and pierce his heart.

From the fact that Malchus’s name is deliberately recorded (John 18:10), it seems quite likely that he became a Christian and was known to the early church.

Malchus received back his ear and gave it to a new master. What would his conversion have cost him, as a servant of the high priest?
