John 14:11 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Believe me that I am in the Father," (pisteuete moi hoti ego en to patri) "You all believe me, that I exist in the Father," Joh 17:21. As Jesus, the Father, and the Spirit were one in the Godhead bodily (Col 2:9), so are His disciples to be and act as one body, assembly, or fellowship in His church work that He has mandated them to do, Rom 12:5.

2) "And the Father in me:” (kai ho pater en emoi) "And the Father exists in me," (Joh 17:23; As the Godhead was visibly manifest or reflected in and through the flesh of Jesus Christ for men to see, to behold, 1Ti 3:16; Joh 1:14; Joh 14:7.

3) "Or else believe me for the very works' sake." (ei de me dia ta erga auta pisteuete) "Or else you all believe in me because of the works themselves," for the miraculous works are signs, evidence, testamentary evidence, that I am that one who was to come, the Son of God, the Redeemer, the Messiah, Deu 18:15-19; Isa 7:14; Isa 9:6; Joh 3:2;. See also Joh 5:36; Joh 10:38; Act 2:22.
