Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 5:25-29

_ _ The hour cometh — in its whole fullness, at Pentecost.

_ _ and now is — in its beginnings.

_ _ the dead — the spiritually dead, as is clear from John 5:28. Here He rises from the calmer phrase “hearing his word” (John 5:24), to the grander expression, “hearing the voice of the Son of God,” to signify that as it finds men in a dead condition, so it carries with it a resurrection-power.

_ _ shall live — in the sense of John 5:24.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 5:17-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 5:25

The dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God — So did Jairus's daughter, the widow's son, Lazarus.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 5:25

(6) We are all dead in sin and cannot be made alive by any other means, except by the word of Christ apprehended by faith.
