Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 5:21-23.


John 5:23

_ _ honour the Son as ... the Father — As he who believes that Christ in the foregoing verses has given a true account of His relation to the Father must of necessity hold Him entitled to the same honor as the Father, so He here adds that it was the Father’s express intention in making over all judgment to the Son, that men should thus honor Him.

_ _ honoureth not the Father — does not do it in fact, whatever he may imagine, and will be held as not doing it by the Father Himself, who will accept no homage which is not accorded to His own Son.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 5:17-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 5:23

That all men may honour the Son, even as they honour the Father — Either willingly, and so escaping condemnation, by faith: or unwillingly, when feeling the wrath of the Judge. This demonstrates the EQUALITY of the Son with the Father. If our Lord were God only by office or investiture, and not in the unity of the Divine essence, and in all respects equal in Godhead with the Father, he could not be honoured even as, that is, with the same honour that they honoured the Father. He that honoureth not the Son — With the same equal honour, greatly dishonoureth the Father that sent him.
