Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 16:29-30

_ _ His disciples said, ... now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb — hardly more so than before; the time for perfect plainness was yet to come; but having caught a glimpse of His meaning (it was nothing more), they eagerly express their satisfaction, as if glad to make anything of His words. How touchingly does this show both the simplicity of their hearts and the infantile character of their faith!
