John 8:28 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then said Jesus unto them," (eipen oun ho lesous) "Then Jesus said (further) to them," explaining, clarifying, to these self-righteous Pharisees, Joh 8:13.

2) "When ye have lifted up the Son of man," (auton hupsosete ton huion tou anthropou) "When you all lift up the Son of man," the heir of humanity, Joh 3:14; Joh 12:32, to crucify Him in the form of the cruel Roman death, the one who came as the Son of man, "to seek and to save that which was lost," Luk 19:10; Gal 3:13; 1Pe 2:24.

3) "Then shall ye know that I am he," (tote gnosesthe hoti ego eimi) "At that point of time you all will know that I exist as the self-existing one," then and not before then, as they had fixed their own destiny in unbelief, Pro 29:1; Mat 27:54; Luk 23:47, the heir of humanity, the Creator, the Life, the Light, the Bread, and the Water of Life, all that I have told you that I was and am, Joh 5:43.

4) "And that I do nothing of myself;"- (kai ap' emautou poio ouden) "And from myself I do not a thing," that is, originating from myself alone, I do nothing," apart from the will and work of Him who sent me, Joh 6:38; Joh 17:4-5; Some knew when He was lifted up, and many directly afterward, Act 2:41; Act 21:20.

5) "But as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things." (alla kathos edidaksen me ho pater tauta lalo) "But just as the Father taught or instructed me, I speak forth these things," things that they were directed in their own law to heed, to obey, Deu 18:15; Deu 18:18-19; Act 3:22-23.
