_ _ Ye sent unto John — (See John 1:19, etc.).

_ _ receive not testimony ... from man — that is, depend not on human testimony.

_ _ but ... that ye might be saved — “I refer to him merely to aid your salvation.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 5:31-47.

He bare testimony — That I am the Christ.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 5:33

(10) Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

(10) Christ is declared to be the only Saviour by John's voice, and infinite miracles, and by the testimonies of all the prophets. But the world, being addicted to false prophets, and desirous to seem religious, does not see any of these things.
