Jesus was very open about rebuking the Pharisees, the fact that He was the Son of God, and His other teachings which the Pharisees rejected. This was His point in John 18:20.
However, just because Jesus was very open in these doctrines does not mean that He said everything to the general public. This would be unwise, and so He spoke to them in parables. Those who were truly interested in learning more could always come to Him and speak with Him. However, everyone knew where Jesus stood, and this is Jesus’ point in John 18.
