John 18:36

Context

18:36 Jesus replied, “My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my servants would be fighting to keep me from being 3  handed over 4  to the Jewish authorities. 5  But as it is, 6  my kingdom is not from here.”

1 tn Grk “And he said to them.”

2 tn The word “people” is supplied in English to clarify the plural Greek pronoun and verb.

3 tn Grk “so that I may not be.”
