John 12:28 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Father, glorify thy name." (pater doksason sou to onoma) "Father, glorify your name," or cause your name to be magnified and praised, through what I am to endure for the redemption of your property, the world, and all that is in it, Joh 3:16; Joh 10:18. Luk 22:42; Joh 5:30.

2) "Then came there a voice from heaven," (elthen oun phone ek tou ouranou) "Then a voice carne out of the heaven above," audibly, much as that voice that spoke from heaven at His baptism and transfiguration, Mat 3:17; Mat 17:4-5.

3) ''Saying, I have both glorified it and will glorify it again," (kai edoksasa kai palin doksaso) ''I have both glorified it and again I will glorify it," in the resurrection, and in the ascension. For the Father first raised Him from the dead, assuring our resurrection as His servants, and second, He dispatched heavenly messengers to leave a message of where He had gone, and assurance that He would return, Rom 8:11; Act 1:8-11. The voice of the Father assured the Son that He was not throwing His life away or giving it up in vain.
