Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 3:31-34.


John 3:32

_ _ what he hath seen and heard — (See on John 3:11 and see on John 1:18).

_ _ and no man receiveth, etc. — John’s disciples had said, “All come to Him” (John 3:26). The Baptist here virtually says, Would it were so, but alas! they are next to “none” [Bengel]. They were far readier to receive himself, and obliged him to say, I am not the Christ, and he seems pained at this.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 3:22-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

No man — None comparatively, exceeding few; receiveth his testimony — With true faith.

And what he hath (z) seen and heard, that he testifieth; and (a) no man receiveth his testimony.

(z) What he knows fully and perfectly.

(a) That is, very few.
