John 8:38 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "I speak that which I have seen with my Father:” (ha ego heoraka para to patri lalo) "I speak what I have seen with (in company with) the Father," in constant communion with the Father, Joh 3:32; Joh 6:46, matters of truth, mercy, and love. These attributes He saw with, in, and emanating from the Father, before He came down from heaven. It was for such claims the Jews had tried to slay Him, Joh 8:16-19; Joh 14:10; Joh 14:24.

2) "And ye do that which ye have seen with your father." (kai humeis oun ha ekousate para tou patros poieite) "And you all then do what you have heard from your father," a different kind of father, who causes you to envy, hate, lie, murder, etc. Joh 8:44, as children of wrath, Eph 2:3. You habitually do the deeds of your father's nature, as children of the devil, 1Jn 3:10.
