John 12:33 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "This he said, signifying,'' (touto de elegen) "Yet this he said," (semainon) "Signifying or identifying," through the phrase "lifted up from the earth," Joh 12:32; Joh 3:14-15; Joh 8:28.

2) "What death," (poio thanato) "By what kind of death," that was by crucifixion, the nailing of the human body upon a cross and fastening it up in an upright position as an object of abject shame before the world, accursed, Deu 21:23; Gal 3:13.

3) "He should die." (emellen apothenskein) "He was about to die," Joh 18:32; Jos 8:29; Joh 19:31. This death of the Christ on the cross would give to Jesus the power-right to have dominion over and eventually cast Satan into the bottomless pit.
