John 14:28 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Ye have heard how I said unto you," (akousate hoti ego eipon humin) "You all heard that I told you," with concern and compassion, Joh 14:1.

2) "I go away, and come again unto you." (hupago kai erchomai pros humas) "I go and I come again to you all," of my own will and accord, Joh 14:2-3; As also foretold Deu 30:3; Psa 2:1-9; as also later prophesied Act 1:9,11; and by Paul, 1Th 4:16-18; Heb 10:36-37.

3) "If ye loved me, ye would rejoice," (ei egapate me echarete an) "If you all loved me you would have rejoiced," or had joy and gladness, if you loved me as you should because I am going away, going back home to my Father, from whom I have been gone more than 30 years, for your sake, 2Co 8:9.

4) "Because I said, I go unto the Father:" (hoti poreuomai pros ton patera) "Because I am going to the Father," to my Father and your Father, Joh 20:17; A thing that should make you glad.

5) "For my Father is greater than I." (hoti ho pater mezion mou estin) "Because my Father is greater than I am," greater at that moment, in glory and happiness. For Jesus had forfeited the glory He once had for a life of humiliation, shame, and a redemptive death, Joh 17:1; Joh 17:4-5; Heb 1:3; Heb 1:10.
