John 14:19 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1 ) "Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more;” (heti mikron kai ho kosmos me ouketi theorei) "Yet a little time and the world beholds me no longer." It can no longer observe, evaluate, or scrutinize me.
2) "But ye see me:” (humeis de theoreite me) "Yet you all behold or observe me," and will again one day, for one day you will come to join me in my Father's estate, where I am preparing an heir-setting place for you all, Rom 8:17; Rom 8:23.
3) "Because I live, ye shall live also," (hoti ego zo kai humeis zesete) "Because I live you all will also live," I live as the fountain of spiritual life, Joh 10:27-29. As believers and as an organic institution, my church, Mat 16:18; Eph 3:21, my house, Mar 13:34-35; 1Ti 3:15; Heb 3:1-6; my bride, Joh 3:28-29; Rev 19:7-9. See also Rev 1:18; Rom 5:10; Rom 8:11; 2Co 4:10-11; Heb 7:25; You will also draw your life from my life, my eternal life, unending in nature and duration, 1Jn 5:13. Paul expressed it, "Christ liveth in me," Gal 2:20.
