John 16:27 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "For the Father himself loveth you," (autos gar ho pater philei humas) "For the Father himself loves you all," hence you may know that He will respond to your prayers to Me, as I also carry them to Him, Joh 3:16. He simply assures them and believers today that their prayers will be heard and their need met, Php_4:19. Their prayers would be answered on the basis of both His intercession for them and the Father's love.

2) "Because ye have loved me," (hoti humeis eme pephilekate) "Because you have loved me, as friends," Joh 14:21; Joh 14:23. All our prayers and deeds are vain, except and until Jesus approves them to the Father, as being in His name, Col 3:17; Act 4:12.

3) "And have believed that I came out from God." (kai pepisteukate hoti ego para tou theou ekselthon) "And you all have believed that I came forth out of and away from the Father," and am His Son, Joh 3:16; Gal 4:4-5; 2Co 8:9; 1Ti 3:16.
