Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 1:16

_ _ of his fulness — of “grace and truth,” resuming the thread of John 1:14.

_ _ grace for grace — that is, grace upon grace (so all the best interpreters), in successive communications and larger measures, as each was able to take it in. Observe, the word “truth” is here dropped. “Grace” being the chosen New Testament word for the whole fullness of the new covenant, all that dwells in Christ for men.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 1:15-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 1:16

And — Here the apostle confirms the Baptist's words: as if he had said, He is indeed preferred before thee: so we have experienced: We all — That believe: have received — All that we enjoy out of his fulness: and in the particular, grace upon grace — One blessing upon another, immeasurable grace and love.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 1:16

(9) And of his fulness have all we received, and (d) grace for grace.

(9) Christ is the most plentiful fountain of all goodness, but he gave out his gifts most bountifully at that time when he exhibited and showed himself to the world.

(d) That is, grace upon grace; as one would say, graces piled one upon another.
