John 14:1 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
COMFORT IN HIS COMING v. 1-6
1 ) "Let not your heart be troubled," (me tarassestho humon he kardia) "Do .not let your heart be troubled," tossed and emotionally agitated like waves of water before an high wind, Joh 14:27; Isa 43:1-2; 2Th 2:2. He did not desire that they experience what He felt in His betrayal, Joh 14:21.
2) "Ye believe in God," (pisteuete eis ton theos) "You all believe in or trust God," the eternal God, and His goodness and care for you all, as He cared for Israel through all her wanderings, 1Co 6:8.
3) "Believe also in me." (kai eis eme pisteuete) "Believe also in me," or trust me as well; In whom you have so much reason to believe, Isa 12:2-3; Eph 1:12-13; 1Pe 1:21. Trust my love and care from Him, to save and help you all, and I will continue to help you when I am gone away, as I make intercession for you to the Father, Heb 7:25; 1Jn 2:1-2.
