Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 10:24

_ _ Then came the Jewsthe rulers. (See on John 1:19).

_ _ How long dost thou make us to doubt? — “hold us in suspense” (Margin).

_ _ If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly — But when the plainest evidence of it was resisted, what weight could a mere assertion of it have?
