Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 3:5

_ _ Additional proof of the incompatibility of sin and sonship; the very object of Christ’s manifestation in the flesh was to take away (by one act, and entirely, aorist) all sins, as the scapegoat did typically.

_ _ and — another proof of the same.

_ _ in him is no sin — not “was,” but “is,” as in 1 John 3:7, “He is righteous,” and 1 John 3:3, “He is pure.” Therefore we are to be so.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 3:4-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 3:5

And ye know that he — Christ. Was manifested — That he came into the world for this very purpose. To take away our sins — To destroy them all, root and branch, and leave none remaining. And in him is no sin — So that he could not suffer on his own account, but to make us as himself.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 3:5

(6) And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

(6) An argument taken from the material cause of our salvation: Christ in himself is most pure, and he came to take away our sins, by sanctifying us with the Holy Spirit, therefore whoever is truly a partaker of Christ, does not give himself to sin, and on the contrary, he that gives himself to sin does not know Christ.
