Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 John 5:11

_ _ hath givenGreek, aorist: “gave” once for all. Not only “promised” it.

_ _ life is in his Son — essentially (John 1:4; John 11:25; John 14:6); bodily (Colossians 2:9); operatively (2 Timothy 1:10) [Lange in Alford]. It is in the second Adam, the Son of God, that this life is secured to us, which, if left to depend on us, we should lose, like the first Adam.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 John 5:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 John 5:11

And this is the sum of that testimony, that God hath given us a title to, and the real beginning of, eternal life; and that this is purchased by, and treasured up in, his Son, who has all the springs and the fulness of it in himself, to communicate to his body, the church, first in grace and then in glory.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 John 5:11

(12) And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

(12) Now at length he shows what this testimony is that is confirmed with so many witnesses: that is, that life or everlasting happiness is the gift of God, which is the Son, and proceeds from him to us, who by faith are joined with him, so that without him, life is nowhere to be found.
