John 10:35 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "If he called them gods," (ei ekeinous eipen theous) "If he called those gods," meaning responsible judges and Jewish adjudicators of every day affairs, under Jewish law, and He (God) did call them "gods," as the term "the law" is used in the general sense to refer to all the Old Testament as in Joh 12:34; Joh 15:25; Rom 3:19; 1Co 14:21.
2) "Unto whom the word of God came," (pros ous ho logos tou theou egeneto) "With whom the word of God was," expressed; Act 23:5, was entrusted, for administration or enforcement, when they were consecrated to worship or to perform in service in Israel. Why should it then be considered unreasonable that God had consecrated and sent His own Son into the world? Joh 3:16-17; Gal 4:4-5.
3) "And the scripture cannot be broken; - (kai ou dunatai luthenai he graphe) "And the scripture is not able (cannot) be broken," for it is written, "Thy word is true from the beginning," Psa 119:160; Mat 5:17-19; Act 13:39.
