John 8:26 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "I have many things to say and to judge of you:" (polla echo peri humon lalein kai krinein) "I hold in reserve many things to speak concerning you all, and to judge things concerning you all," based on your opportunity, and therefore your accountability, for your decisions and deeds, Joh 8:21; Joh 8:24; Pro 1:20-31.

2) "But he that sent me is true;" (all' ho pempsas me alethes estin) "But the one who sent me is true," genuine, not a fake at all, Gal 4:4-5. They did not relate "Him that sent me," or mandated me, with the Father, Joh 8:16; Joh 8:18; Joh 3:17.

3) "And I speak to the world," (kago lalo eis ton kosmon) "And I speak with reference to the present world order of things," and to and for the masses of mankind. He yet speaks to the world wherever His Gospel is preached, Luk 19:10; Joh 20:21; Act 1:8.

4) "Those things which I have heard of him." (ha ekousa par' autou tauta) "What I heard from alongside him, these things," I speak forth, words of truth from God the Father, that I am come that all men might have salvation, life, and light, Joh 1:4-6; Joh 8:12; Joh 3:16-17; Joh 10:10; Joh 10:28.
