John 12:44 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Jesus cried and said," (iesous de ekraksen kai eipen) "Then Jesus cried out and said," with a loud voice, with vehement oratory, addressed to all who could possibly hear His physical crying appeal, an unusual form of address by Him, Mat 12:19, reaching out His hand to help, Rom 10:21; Isa 65:2.

2) "He that believeth on me," (ho pisteuon eis eme) ''The one who believes in me;- This was His last cry to the world, as a prophet, with loud emotional emphasis, as the Savior, the Messiah, the Son of God, Joh 1:12; Joh 13:14-18; Joh 13:36; Joh 8:21-24.

3) "Believeth not on me," (ou pisteuei eis eme) "He believes not only in me," alone, in isolation from Him who sent me, Joh 3:17-18; Rom 1:16; yet, an excessive craving for the praise of men leads to many acts against what they believe to be right, and against their own conscience,

4) "But on him that sent me." (alla eis ton pempsanta me) "But also in the one who has sent me," Mar 9:37; Joh 5:24; Gal 4:4-5; Joh 17:4-5.

Summarily, Jesus affirmed that as an ambassador for the Father to believe on and follow Him was to do the same to His Father, as well as to reject Him was to reject the Father, Joh 12:23; Joh 12:30; Joh 12:43; Joh 7:16; Joh 8:42.
