John 15:24 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1 ) "If I had not done among them the works," (ei ta erga me epoies a en autois) "if I had not done the works (miraculous deeds and teaching) which I did among them," the rejecting Jews, restating the same concept of verse 22; through His teaching and His miraculous deeds, Joh 3:2; Joh 5:36; Joh 7:31; Joh 12:37.
2) "Which none other man did," (ha oudeis allos epoiesen) "Which no other one ever did," as witnessed by Nicodemus, Joh 3:2; and witnessed at the healing of a paralytic (Mar 2:5-11) who said "we never saw it on this wise before."
3) "They had not had sin:" (hamartian ouk eichosan) "They would not have had sin," the degree of sin against light and knowledge that they had, Pro 29:1; Jas 4:17; They knew their call to repentance and belief, but would not, Luk 13:3; Luk 13:5; Joh 8:24.
4) "But now have they both seen and hated," (nun de kai heorakasin kai memisekasin) "However now and hereafter-they have both seen and hated," and cannot longer or any more plead ignorant of me, Eph 4:18; Pro 1:20-31; Pro 29:1.
