John 16:5 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "But now I go my way to him that sent me;" (nun de hupago pros ton pempsanta me) "However now and hereafter I am going to the one who sent," back to my Father's residence and estate from which I came down, 2Co 8:9; Joh 3:16-17; Joh 20:21; Gal 4:4-5. He had now discharged His Father's will and work, Joh 17:4.

2) "And none of you asketh me;" (kai oukeis eks humon erota me) "And not one of you asks me." They asked when they thought He was about to be crowned king, Joh 14:5; But not after He had more fully explained of His certain coming death.

3) "Whither goest thou?" (pou hupageis) "Where are you going?" He had done so many supernatural miracles before them that they could not afford not to trust His word about His death and the way to life again for Himself and for them, Joh 14:1-6; Joh 14:18-20; Joh 14:29-30. So absorbed were they in their own grief that none asked Him just where He was going.
