Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 3:17-21.


John 3:18

_ _ is not condemned — Having, immediately on his believing, “passed from death unto life” (John 5:24).

_ _ condemned already — Rejecting the one way of deliverance from that “condemnation” which God gave His Son to remove, and so willfully remaining condemned.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 3:1-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 3:18

He that believeth on him is not condemned — Is acquitted, is justified before God. The name of the only — begotten Son of God — The name of a person is often put for the person himself. But perhaps it is farther intimated in that expression, that the person spoken of is great and magnificent. And therefore it is generally used to express either God the Father or the Son.
