Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 5:25-29.


John 5:26

_ _ given to the Son, etc. — Does this refer to the essential life of the Son before all time (John 1:4) (as most of the Fathers, and Olshausen, Stier, Alford, etc., among the moderns), or to the purpose of God that this essential life should reside in the Person of the Incarnate Son, and be manifested thus to the world? [Calvin, Lucke, Luthardt, etc.] The question is as difficult as the subject is high. But as all that Christ says of His essential relation to the Father is intended to explain and exalt His mediatorial functions, so the one seems in our Lord’s own mind and language mainly the starting-point of the other.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 5:17-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 5:26

He hath given to the Son — By eternal generation, to have life in himself — Absolute, independent.
