John 12:23 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

THE LORD'S RESPONSE, v. 23-50

1 ) "And Jesus answered them, saying," (ho de lesous apokrinetai autois legon) "Then Jesus answered them (Philip and Andrew) explaining," whether privately or in the presence of all the apostles is not certain, but apparently with not only John (this writer) but also the other apostles present. It appears that Jesus did not grant the interview to the Greeks, as Gentiles.

2) "The hour is come," (eleluthen he hora) "The hour has come," or arrived, different from His early ministry statement to His mother, often repeated thereafter up to this time when He had said, "mine hour is not yet come," Joh 2:4; But it had now come to be at hand, Joh 13:32; Joh 17:1.

3) "That the Son of man should be glorified." (hina doksasthe ho huios tou anthropou) "In order that the Son of man is glorified," to be glorified, a glory that He voluntarily forfeited in heaven, to come and be born among men, 2Co 8:9; Joh 17:4-5; as also indicated Joh 1:1-2; Php_2:6; Heb 1:3; Heb 1:10.
