John 10:28 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "And I-give unto them eternal life;" - (kago didomi autois zoen aionion) "And I dole out to them directly, eternal life," right now, of my own choice, will, or pleasure, when they hear or heed my call to come and to follow me, not after they die, Joh 3:14-15; 1Jn 5:13.
2) "And they shall never perish,'' (kai ou me apolontai eis ton aiona) "And they by no means perish into the age," thereafter, either in this life, the coming millennial, or the heaven age,'' Joh 5:24; Joh 17:12; Joh 18:9; Heb 7:25.
3) ''Neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.'' (kai ouch harpasei tis auta ek tes cheiros mou) "And no one shall seize or harpoon them out of or away from my hand," from my hold or care, from my protection ' No one shall be able to carry them out of my care and keeping, Joh 6:39; Rom 8:35-39; 1Pe 1:5. This is our Lord's Divine pledge to eternal security from Hell, into eternity, for every believer sheep who comes to, trusts in, and follows Him; When they come to Him they then become:
b) Saved, and created in Christ unto good works, Eph 2:8-9.
