John 17:8 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me;" (hoti ta hermata ha edokas moi dedoka autois) "Because the words (of direction) that you gave to me I have doled out to them," shared with them, Joh 5:19; Joh 7:16; Joh 8:28; Joh 12:49.

2) "And they have received them," (kai autoi elabon) ''And they (as my disciples, my house, my bride, my church) have received them," been faithful to embrace them, Joh 1:12; Joh 16:30; Mat 14:33; Mat 16:15-16; Joh 6:69; Joh 11:27; Act 9:20.

3) "And have known surely that I came out from thee," (kai egnosan alethos hoti para soul ekselthon) "And they have truly, surely, or certainly known that I came forth from alongside you," from your presence, Joh 3:16-17; by the things I have taught, the things I have done, and their own experience of trust in me, Joh 6:68; Joh 16:30.

4) "And they have believed," (kai episteusan) "And they believed," and continue to believe or trust, Joh 1:12; Joh 20:30-31.

5) "That thou didst send me." (hoti su me apesteilas) "That you sent, commissioned, or mandated me," vs. 3, to come into the world, as that prophet who was to come, Deu 18:15-19; Gal 4:4-5; Joh 20:21. He was that sent one, that predicted teacher.
