Verses of John 7
John 7:35 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Then said the Jews among themselves," (eipon oun hoi loudaioi pros heautous) "Then said the Jews to themselves, to one another;" Confounded and confused by His words as He spoke there in the holy temple, while they as leaders connived and plotted, with murder in their hearts, Joh 7:28; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18.
2) "Whither will he go, that we shall not find him?'' (pou houtos mellei poreuesthai hoti hemeis ouch heuresomen auton) "Where is this one about to go that we will not find him?"
3) ''Will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles," (me eis ten diasporan ton hellenon mellei poreuesthai) "He is not about to go to the dispersion among the Greeks, is he?" to the Jews scattered among the Gentiles of the Grecian states or territories, is He? Deu 28:25; Isa 11:12, Jas 1:1; 1Pe 1:1.
4) "And teach the Gentiles?" (kai didaskein tous hellenas) "And to teach the Greeks, is he?" Those Jews who have become nationals in Grecian territories as well as the Gentiles there; is it possible that is what He is saying? It was not. He simply was speaking of returning to His Father in heaven, a thing they could not grasp, having rejected Him as Divine, as the Son of God, Joh 1:11-12; In spite of: 1) His prophetic fulfillments, 2) His miracles, and 3) His teachings done before their blinded eyes and ignorant minds, 1Co 2:14; 2Co 3:3-4.
