Luke 22:64 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:64

And when they had blindfolded him
Or put a veil, or linen cloth over his eyes, as children do at play, to make themselves some sport with him:

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).
