Lantern

The word occurs, John 18:3 : μετα φανων και λαμπαδων : "with torches and lanterns:" but both terms appear to signify torches; the former of a ruder kind than the latter, being formed of split laths bound into bundles, throwing around a strong glare of light. They came thus furnished to apprehend our Lord, lest he should escape through the darkness of the night.
