John 13:13 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Ye call me Master and Lord:" (humeis phoneite me ho didaskalos kai ho kurios) "You all call me the Teacher and the Lord," or address me as Master and Lord, respectfully, indicating His approval of it. Perhaps "Rabbi" would have been even a more respectful term than teacher, Mat 23:8-10; Luk 6:46; Eph 6:7.

2) "And ye say well;" (kai kalos legete) "And you speak well," in an ideal manner, respecting my dignity of person, from the Father, His Son and Emissary, Gal 4:4-5; Heb 1:1-3.

3) "For so I am." (eimi gar) "For I am or exist," as such, as your Master and your Lord, even though I came to save and minister to you all, leaving you an example to follow, as my servants, is the idea, Mat 20:24-28.
