MALCHUS

(mal' kuhss) Personal name meaning “king,” common among the Idumaeans and Palmyrenes, especially for their kings or tribal chiefs. High priest's servant whose ear Peter cut off (John 18:10). The name is unusual for slaves who commonly had names such as Onesimus (“Useful”; Philemon 1:10-11). Perhaps the slave was chief of the Temple guard. Only Luke recorded the healing of the ear (Luke 22:51). Possibly Luke desired to stress Jesus' compassion in the midst of His passion (compare Luke 23:28,Luke 23:34,Luke 23:43) or respect shown to the high priest and his representative (compare Acts 23:4).
