John 13:34 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "A new commandment I give unto you," (entole kaine didomi humin) "A new commandment I dole out to you all," new in the sense that it had never been given or stated in this measure before, that is to be obeyed, to express your love and obedience to me, Joh 14:15; 1Jn 5:3; He gave not the commandment to the world, but to His "you all," church disciples, Joh 15:16-17.

2) "That ye love one another;" (hina agapate allelous) "In order that you may love (have and show priority affection to) one another," in your personal and church behavior, Joh 15:12; Joh 15:17; 1Th 4:9.

3) "As I have loved you," (kathos egapesa humas) "Just as I love you all," or have had and shown love to you all; It is this measure of love that makes it new, Eph 5:2; Joh 10:11; Joh 13:1.

4) "That ye also love one another." (hina kai humeis agapete allelous) "in order that you all also may love one another," with an high, holy love, of an high priority of affection, or earnest care for each other; That you love one another with a constant, practical, self-denying affection, to show that you love, and are my disciples, and obedient to me, 1Jn 4:7; 1Jn 4:11; 2Jn 1:5.
