John 16:24 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:" (heos arti ouk etesate ouken en to onomati mou) "Until now (this time) you all have not asked anything in my name," of the Father, for I have not heretofore taught you to pray in my name, Mat 6:9; But you are to pray to Him in my name, after my death, and resurrection, and ascension, when I shall have paid for your redemption, Mat 28:16-20.

2) "Ask, and ye shall receive," (aiteite kai lempsesthe) "You all ask and you will receive," if and when you ask in faith, in my name, and according to His will, Jas 4:2-3; 1Jn 3:22.

3) "That your joy may be full." (hina he chara humon he pepleromene) "In order that your joy may be filled," full, or having been filled, Joh 15:11; Joh 16:33. It is emphasized that resurrection joy and spiritual strength and help are available, to be sought in this age by direct, personal prayer to God, the Father, in the name of Jesus Christ.
