18 Verse 18. Now in the morning, as he returned into the city]
Which was his custom from the time he wholly left Jerusalem,
spending only the day time teaching in the temple; see Mt 21:17.
This was probably on Thursday, the 12th day of the month Nisan.
He hungered-Probably neither he, nor his disciples, had any

seems to have been cold at this time.
