Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 13:6-11.


John 13:7

_ _ Jesus answered and said ... What I do thou knowest not now — that is, Such condescension does need explanation; it is fitted to astonish.

_ _ but thou shall know hereafter — afterwards, meaning presently; though viewed as a general maxim, applicable to all dark sayings in God’s Word, and dark doings in God’s providence, these words are full of consolation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 13:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 13:7

What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter — We do not now know perfectly any of his works, either of creation, providence, or grace. It is enough that we can love and obey now, and that we shall know hereafter.
