John 13:7 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Jesus answered and said unto him," (apekrithe lesous kai eipen auto) "Jesus responded and said directly to him," who had drawn back in an honorable, respectful manner, so that the Lord recognized the good motive of his heart and replied in tender tone to him.

2) "What I do thou knowest not now;” (ho ego poio su ouk oidas arti) "What I am doing you do not realize yet;" at this hour, or present time, Joh 13:12; Joh 13:36. But the meaning of "arti," the "this moment now" implies that he is to know shortly, as the Lord gave instruction to His disciples regarding the principle of foot-washing for the future, Joh 13:12-15.

3) "But thou shalt know hereafter." (gnose de meta tauta) "However, you will know these things hereafter," or later you will understand, or know full well, emphatically, unmistakably. The best trait of a servant is to trust in the wisdom of his Lord or master, with an absolute trust, Pro 3:4-5.
