John 8:13 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "The Pharisees therefore said unto him," (eipon oun auto hoi Pharisaioi) "Therefore the Pharisees replied to him," those crowding in to cast aspersions at Him personally and raise questions of doubt regarding His teaching and His integrity.

2) "Thou bearest record of thyself;” (su peri seautou martureis) "You witness concerning yourself;"- They sought to discredit His honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity. When they could not answer His wisdom in His teaching they attempted to besmirch His reputation, though they themselves were unregenerate liars, children of the Devil, Joh 8:44-45.

3) "Thy record is not true." (he marturia sou ouk estin alethes) "Your witness or testimony is not true or genuine." It will not stand up, does not exist as legal testimony, so far as we are concerned you are not telling the truth, but perverting and distorting it. They not only “received him not," but also viciously, openly, and covertly sought to indict Him as a criminal and a law breaker, Joh 1:11; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 5:43.
