Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 12:29-33.


John 12:31

_ _ Now is the judgment of this world — the world that “crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Corinthians 2:8), considered as a vast and complicated kingdom of Satan, breathing his spirit, doing his work, and involved in his doom, which Christ’s death by its hands irrevocably sealed.

_ _ now shall the prince of this world be cast out — How differently is that fast-approaching “hour” regarded in the kingdoms of darkness and of light! “The hour of relief; from the dread Troubler of our peace — how near it is! Yet a little moment, and the day is ours!” So it was calculated and felt in the one region. “Now shall the prince of this world be cast out,” is a somewhat different view of the same event. We know who was right. Though yet under a veil, He sees the triumphs of the Cross in unclouded and transporting light.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 12:27-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 12:31

Now — This moment. And from this moment Christ thirsted more than ever, till his baptism was accomplished. Is the judgment of this world — That is, now is the judgment given concerning it, whose it shall be. Now shall the prince of this world — Satan, who had gained possession of it by sin and death, be cast out — That is, judged, condemned, cast out of his possession, and out of the bounds of Christ's kingdom.
