EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?—On the popular view of the lower form of Judaism that identified prophecy with clairvoyance, see Note. on Matthew 26:68.Matthew 26:57-68.
(See on Mr 14:53-63; Joh 18:19, &c.; and Lu 22:55-62.)See Poole on "Luke 22:63"
they struck him on the face; on that part of it which was not covered, either with their hands, or with rods:
and asked him, saying, prophesy, who is it that smote thee? hereby deriding his prophetic office, and using such language as children do at blindman's buff; See Gill on Matthew 26:68.And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Luke 22:64. περικαλύψαντες, covering (the face understood, τὸ πρόσωπον in Mk.)—προφήτευσον, τίς, etc.: Lk. here follows Mt., not Mk., who has simply the verb προφ. without the question following.64. blindfolded him] Probably by throwing an abba over his head and face. Mark 14:65. The Talmud says that the False Messiah, Bar Cochba, was similarly insulted.Τίς ἐστιν, who is it?) To not a few, who are more desirous from their heart to escape observation than was that wanton mass, composed of the scum of mankind, it shall hereafter at last be said, THOU ART THE MAN (who smote the Saviour): even though the matter (this final award) is about to be put off until the last day.—V. g.]Verse 64. - And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee? The Jews, in this terrible scene (see, too, for further details of the outrages, Matthew 26:67; Mark 14:65), were unconsciously working out a literal fulfillment of Isaiah's picture of the righteous Sufferer (Isaiah 1:6; Isaiah 53:3-7).
