John 15:21 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "But all these things will they do unto you," (alla tauta panta poiesousin eis humas) "But all these things they will do to you all," So do not be dismayed, become despondent, lose courage, or fall out of my service, Gal 6:9; Heb 12:1-2; 1Co 15:58.

2) "For my name's sake." (dia to onoma mou) "On account of my name," Mat 10:22; Mat 24:9; Joh 16:3, your identity, individually and as a chosen church body, with my name, what I have commanded should be done and directed you all to do, Joh 13:34; Joh 14:13-15; Joh 15:14; Joh 20:21.

3) "Because they know not," (hoti ouk oidamen) "Because they do not know," personally or experimentally perceive, Joh 8:19; Joh 8:55. The name of Jesus was hateful to the world, because it did not recognize the sender of Him, Joh 3:17; Gal 4:4-5.

4) "Him that sent me." (ton pempsanta me) "The one who has sent me." They did not know God, His Father, in a spiritual experience of regeneration, Mat 5:20; Joh 5:43; Joh 8:21; Joh 8:24; Joh 8:44; Joh 8:47.
