John 14:22 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1 ) "Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot," (legei auto loudas ouch ho Iskariotes) "Judas says directly to him, not the Iscariot-Judas," but Judas the brother of James, the Judas who was also known as Lebbaeus, Luk 6:16; Mat 10:1.
2) "Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us," (kurie kai ti gegonen hoti hemin melleis emphanizein seauton) "Lord, and what has happened that you are about to manifest yourself to us," He, this Judas, had assumed that Jesus would reveal Himself as an earthly messiah or king, Act 1:6-7, to them as a disciple group, as a called out company that has been called out and chosen by you and followed you, from the beginning, Joh 15:16; Joh 15:27; Act 1:8; Act 1:21-22; The answer was by the evident sending of the Holy Spirit empowerment, as well as His resurrection appearance to them at least ten times after His death.
3) "And not unto the world?" (kai ouchi to kosmo) "And not to the world order," because the world hated Him, was blind, ignorant of the righteousness of God, under dominion of the god of this world, Joh 15:18-20; 2Co 4:3-4; Eph 4:18.
