John 12:32 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth," (kago ean hupsotho ek tes ges) "And I, if I am lifted up out of and away from the earth," fulfilling the purpose for which He came, Luk 19:10; Joh 3:14-15; Joh 8:28; Rom 5:8; 2Co 5:21; Gal 3:13; 1Pe 2:24. The cross draws men to His throne and to Him.

2) "Will draw all men unto me." (pantas helkuso pros emauthon) "I will draw all men or things to myself," in the resurrection, and final judgement, Joh 5:18-19; 2Ti 4:1-2; Heb 9:27-28. The term "all things," I will draw to me, is a literal meaning of the language used in the original here, and refers to the eventual restitution of all agencies, governments, and creatures of creation under His jurisdiction and judgement, Act 3:21; Rom 8:22; Rom 8:3, 1Co 15:24-28.
