John 13:36 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Simon Peter said unto him," (legei auto Simon Petros) "Simon Peter then said to him," in search of an understanding of where He was to go

2) "Lord, whither goest thou?" (kurie pou hupageis) "Lord, where are you going?" as referred to, Joh 13:33, similar to a former statement He had made to the unbelieving Jews, Joh 8:21; Joh 8:24.

3) "Jesus answered him, Whither I go," (apekrithe lesous hopou hupago) "Jesus replied to him, where l go," not making it clear to him at once what He meant, that He was going back to His Father's house, from which He had come down to earth, 2Co 8:9; Joh 14:1-3.

4) "Thou canst not follow me now," (ou dunasai moi nun akolouthesai) "You are notable to follow me now," or hereafter in this, this mission on which I go to my Father; For you can not until your life's work for me is done, as mine is almost finished for my Father, Joh 17:4-5; 2Ti 4:7-8.

5) "But thou shalt follow me afterwards." (akoloutheseis de husteron) "Yet you will follow me later," in a very important way, for intimate fellowship with me again, never thereafter to be parted, Joh 21:18; 2Pe 1:14; For where I am going there is or will be room for all my friends, Joh 14:2-3. And "eye hath not seen" nor heart perceived, the glory of and in that reunion place, so much better than that place the church had met with Simon the Leper, for their last social fellowship meal before His death, Isa 64:4; 1Co 2:9.
