Verses of John 8
John 8:19 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father?" (elegon oun auto pou estin ho pater sou) "Then they replied directly to him where is (exists) your Father?'' in anger and with sarcasm and irony they said it, like gnostics today, they insinuated that the accounts of His virgin birth were a farce, and He was simply born illegitimate, of fornication, Joh 8:41.
2) "Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father:” (apekrithe lesous oute eme oidate oute ton patera mou) "Jesus answered, you all know neither me nor my Father," You all really do not perceive who either I am or the Father really is, Joh 5:37; Joh 16:3; Joh 17:25.
3) "If ye had known me," (ei eme edeite) "If you all really knew me," and honored me, Joh 5:23. They would not know Him because of their willful, spiritual blindness, by the god of this world, 2Co 4:3-4; They would not know or recognize Him. It was not that they could not know Him, Joh 7:17; Mat 23:37.
4) "Ye should have known my Father also." (kai ten patera mou an edeite) "You would also have known or perceived my Father," who sent me, Joh 5:23; Joh 5:26-27; Joh 5:30; Joh 5:38; Joh 5:43; Joh 14:7; Joh 14:9. Because He is one with the Father and the way to the Father, Joh 6:44, whom to know is eternal life, Joh 17:3.
