Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 16:11

_ _ Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged — By supposing that the final judgment is here meant, the point of this clause is, even by good interpreters, quite missed. The statement, “The prince of this world is judged,” means, beyond all reasonable doubt, the same as that in John 12:31, “Now shall the prince of this world be cast out”; and both mean that his dominion over men, or his power to enslave and so to ruin them, is destroyed. The death of Christ “judged” or judicially overthrew him, and he was thereupon “cast out” or expelled from his usurped dominion (Hebrews 2:14; 1 John 3:8; Colossians 2:15). Thus, then, the Spirit shall bring home to men’s conscience: (1) the sense of sin, consummated in the rejection of Him who came to “take away the sin of the world”; (2) the sense of perfect relief in the righteousness of the Father’s Servant, now fetched from the earth that spurned Him to that bosom where from everlasting He had dwelt; and (3) the sense of emancipation from the fetters of Satan, whose judgment brings to men liberty to be holy, and transformation out of servants of the devil into sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty. To one class of men, however, all this will carry conviction only; they “will not come to Christ” — revealed though He be to them as the life-giving One — that they may have life. Such, abiding voluntarily under the dominion of the prince of this world, are judged in his judgment, the visible consummation of which will be at the great day. To another class, however, this blessed teaching will have another issue — translating them out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s dear Son.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 16:7-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 16:11

The prince of this world is judged — And in consequence thereof dethroned, deprived of the power he had so long usurped over men. Yet those who reject the deliverance offered them will remain slaves of Satan still.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 16:11

Of (d) judgment, (e) because the prince of this world is judged.

(d) Of that authority and power which I have both in heaven and in earth.

(e) That is, because they will then understand and indeed know that I have overcome the devil, and govern the world, and then all men will see that they set themselves against you in vain, for I will arm you with heavenly power by which you may destroy every high thing which is lifted up against the knowledge of God; (2 Corinthians 10:5).
