John 17:14 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "I have given them thy word;" (ego dedoka autois ton logon sou) "I have given directly to them your word," which you gave me, which is "true from the beginning," Psa 119:42; Psa 119:50; Psa 119:160-161; Mar 16:15; Act 4:29; Heb 4:12.

2) "And the world hath hated them," (kai ho kosmos emisesen autous) "And the world has hated them," with a continuing hate, as I told them it would, Mat 5:11-12; Joh 15:19. The world hates them because of the Revelation of God in Christ through them, as His church, that supplanted the Jewish house (order) and form of worship, Eph 3:21; Mat 5:1-3; Mat 10:12; Heb 3:1-6; 1Ti 3:15.

3) "Because they are not of the world," (hoti ouk ek tou kosmou) "Because they are not (exist not) out of the world order," Joh 15:18-19. They do not possess its predominating spirit, observe its policies, or share in its fate. Though they are yet carnal, they have the power and presence of the Spirit to lead, guide, and help them, Gal 5:22-25; Rom 8:14; Rom 8:16.

4) "Even as I am not of the world." (kathos ego ouk eimi ek tou kosmou) "Just as I am not (exist not) out of the world order of things. They have my Spirit in them, they are in me, have my eternal nature implanted, Joh 10:27-29, and ''love not the world," in its fallen state, order, and impulses
