Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 5:30-32.


John 5:32

_ _ There is another — that is, the Father, as is plain from the connection. How brightly the distinction of the Persons shines out here!

_ _ and I know that the witness, etc. — “This is the Son’s testimony to the Father’s truth (see John 7:28; John 8:26, John 8:55). It testifies to the full consciousness on the part of the Son, even in the days of His humiliation, of the righteousness of the Father” [Alford]. And thus He cheered His spirit under the cloud of human opposition which was already gathering over His head.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 5:31-47.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 5:32

There is another — The Father, John 5:37, and I know that, even in your judgment, his testimony in beyond exception.
