comment What does “born again” from John 3:3 mean?
Why indeed? We all know the feeling. Sorry about that. Hopefully they'll come back and explain their reasoning.

@DanO'Day I'm not sure what I'm missing. I think supplying the name of the servant and telling us that the man's relative witnessed Peter hack off the man's ear are very different issues. The later gives context to the relative identifying Peter while the former is apparently historical trivia apart from the meaning of Machus' name.

@GoneQuiet It's a Hebrew/Aramaic name, not Greek. And very common in first century Israel. I think the meaning and its context is evidence that John knew at least a little Hebrew/Aramaic and that at least some in his audience did as well.

comment What significance does John perceive in the piercing of Christ's side and the flow of blood and water?
I think there is an inclusio between John 1:35-51 and John 20:1-29 which extends into a larger narrative chiasm.

Good answer. Do you think it's coincidence that Malchus' name means king or kingdom? Jesus says in John 18:36, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” But there's a problem with that statement. Peter has been fighting. And he attacked a man named kingdom.

Did you think it had something to do with the proconsul, Lucius Sergius Paulus, also having the name Paulus?
