John 10:6 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "This parable spake Jesus unto them:” (tauten ten pariomian eipen autois ho lesous) "Jesus told them this allegory," v. 19, the Pharisee Jews especially, who had excluded the former blind man Jesus healed from the synagogue, Joh 9:34-35; Joh 16:2.
2) "But they understood not what things they were," (ekeinoi de ouk egnosan tina hen) "Yet they did not know what things they were," the picture He had painted of their moral nature, or did not understand, as described, Joh 8:43; 1Co 2:14; 2Co 4:3-4; Eph 4:18. They were spiritually blind, ignorant, did not "will" to know or do His will, Joh 7:17.
