Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 10:37-39

_ _ though ye believe not me, believe the works — There was in Christ’s words, independently of any miracles, a self-evidencing truth, majesty and grace, which those who had any spiritual susceptibility were unable to resist (John 7:46; John 8:30). But, for those who wanted this, “the works” were a mighty help. When these failed, the case was desperate indeed.

_ _ that ye may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in him — thus reiterating His claim to essential oneness with the Father, which He had only seemed to soften down, that He might calm their rage and get their ear again for a moment.
