John 18:20

Openly (parrhsiai). As already shown ( Matthew 7:4 ; Matthew 8:26 ; Matthew 10:24 Matthew 10:39 ; Matthew 16:25 Matthew 16:29 . See Matthew 7:4 for same contrast between en parrhsiai and en kruptwi. I ever taught (egw pantote edidaxa). Constative aorist active indicative. For the temple teaching see John 2:19 ; John 7:14 John 7:28 ; John 8:20, 19:23 John 19:23 ; Mark 14:49 and John 6:59 for the synagogue teaching (often in the Synoptics). Examples of private teaching are Nicodemus ( John 3:1-21 ) and the woman of Samaria ( John 4:4-42 ). Jesus ignores the sneer at his disciples, but challenges the inquiry about his teaching as needless.
