John 8:54 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing:” (apekrithe lesous) "Jesus replied," (ean ego doksaso ematuon he doksa mou ouden estin) "If I glorify myself, my glory is (exists as) not a thing," Joh 5:31. He bare witness of the Father, to glorify the Father, or to honor and serve the Father, not to establish a personal identity for self glory, Joh 17:4-5.

2) "It is my Father that honoureth me," (estin ho pater mou ho doksazon me) "It is my Father who is glorifying me," honoring me, as I teach His words and do deeds that honor Him, a thing you all are not doing, See? Joh 8:50; Joh 5:41; Joh 16:14; Joh 17:1; Act 3:13.

3) "Of whom ye say, that he is your God:"- (hon humeis legete hoti theos hemon estin) "Of whom you all say, He is our God," since He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whom you all claim as your fathers, a thing you try to monopolize, and through which racial ties you think you will enter heaven, Joh 8:33; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40; Mat 22:31-33.
