John 18:20 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

In the synagogue (ἐν τῇ συναγωγῇ)

The best texts omit the article. Render, in synagogue: when the people were assembled. Like our phrase, in church.

Always resort (πάντοτε συνέρχονται)

For πάντοτε always, read πάντες all. Συνέρχονται is rather come together, assemble. Rev., where all the Jews come together.
