Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 1:3

_ _ All things, etc. — all things absolutely (as is evident from John 1:10; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Colossians 1:16, Colossians 1:17; but put beyond question by what follows).

_ _ without Him was not any thingnot one thing.

_ _ made — brought into being.

_ _ that was made — This is a denial of the eternity and non-creation of matter, which was held by the whole thinking world outside of Judaism and Christianity: or rather, its proper creation was never so much as dreamt of save by the children of revealed religion.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 1:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 1:3

All things beside God were made, and all things which were made, were made by the Word. In John 1:1-2 is described the state of things before the creation: John 1:3, In the creation: John 1:4, In the time of man's innocency: John 1:5, In the time of man's corruption.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 1:3

(2) All (f) things were made by him; and (g) without him (h) was not any thing made that was made.

(2) The Son of God declares that his everlasting Godhead is the same as the Father's, both by the creating of all things, and also by preserving them, and especially by the excellent gifts of reason and understanding with which he has beautified man above all other creatures.

(f) Paul expounds on this in (Colossians 1:15-16).

(g) That is, as the Father did work, so did the Son work with him: for the Son was a fellow worker with him.

(h) Of all those things which were made, nothing was made without him.
