Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 13:33-35

_ _ Little children — From the height of His own glory He now descends, with sweet pity, to His “little children,” all now His own. This term of endearment, nowhere else used in the Gospels, and once only employed by Paul (Galatians 4:19), is appropriated by the beloved disciple himself, who no fewer than seven times employs it in his first Epistle.

_ _ Ye shall seek me — feel the want of Me.

_ _ as I said to the Jews — (John 7:34; John 8:21). But oh in what a different sense!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 13:31-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 13:33

Ye cannot come — Not yet; being not yet ripe for it. John 7:34.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 13:33

(4) Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

(4) The eternal glory will flow little by little from the head into the members. But meanwhile, we must take good heed that we run the race of this life in brotherly love.
