John 8:52 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then said the Jews unto him," (eipan auto hoi loudaioi) "The Jews said to him," in response to His statement that one believing or trusting in Him should never see death or separation from God, Joh 8:51; the same as they shall never perish," Joh 10:27-28.

2) "Now we know that thou hast a devil." (nun egnokamen hoti diamonion echeis) "Now and hereafter we know you have a demon, are demon obsessed," or a demon has control on Him, because they could not comprehend or would not accept His words, though the Sadducees among them denied existence of angels and demon spirits, Act 23:8.

3) "Abraham is dead, and the prophets;" (Abraam apethanen kai hoi prophetai) "Abraham and the prophets died," Zec 1:5; Heb 11:13; in Adam, Rom 5:12; 1Co 15:22; Ecc 9:5; Heb 9:27.

4) "And thou sayest, If a man keep my saying," (kai su legeis ean tis ton logon mou terese) "And you assert, if anyone keeps or guards my word," my sayings, or my teaching, Joh 8:51; not "my word," which they quote, to make what He said to be His personally, apart from the Father, Joh 5:30; Joh 5:37; Joh 5:43; Joh 8:28.

5) He shall never taste of death." (ou me geusetai thanatou eis ton haima) "He will by no means taste death into the age," for Jesus has tasted if for him, Heb 2:9, never perish, come into condemnation, or be spiritually alienated from God; One "dead in trespasses and in sins," once trusting in Jesus as Savior, once born again, once quickened to spiritual life, receives everlasting and eternal life, a possession never to be lost, or that can never be abolished or lost, Joh 5:24; Joh 11:26; 1Jn 5:13.
