Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 2:22

_ _ a liarGreek, “Who is the liar?” namely, guilty of the lie just mentioned (1 John 2:21).

_ _ that Jesus is the Christ — the grand central truth.

_ _ He is AntichristGreek,the Antichrist”; not however here personal, but in the abstract; the ideal of Antichrist is “he that denieth the Father and the Son.” To deny the latter is virtually to deny the former. Again, the truth as to the Son must be held in its integrity; to deny that Jesus is the Christ, or that He is the Son of God, or that He came in the flesh, invalidates the whole (Matthew 11:27).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 2:20-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 2:22

Who is that liar — Who is guilty of that lying, but he who denies that truth which is the sum of all Christianity? That Jesus is the Christ; that he is the Son of God; that he came in the flesh, is one undivided truth. and he that denies any part of this, in effect denies the whole. He is antichrist — And the spirit of antichrist, who in denying the Son denies the Father also.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 2:22

(23) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the (r) Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

(23) He shows now plainly the false doctrine of the antichrist's, that is, that either they fight against the person of Christ, or his office, or both together and at once. They who do so, boast and brag of God in vain, for in denying the Son, the Father also is denied.

(r) Is the true Messiah.
