Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-31.


John 6:29

_ _ This is the work of God — That lies at the threshold of all acceptable obedience, being not only the prerequisite to it, but the proper spring of it — in that sense, the work of works, emphatically “the work of God.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 6:29

This is the work of God — The work most pleasing to God, and the foundation of all others: that ye believe — He expresses it first properly, afterward figuratively.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 6:29

(5) Jesus answered and said unto them, (g) This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

(5) Men torment themselves in vain when they try to please God without faith.

(g) That is, this is the work that God requires, that you believe in me, and therefore he calls them back to faith.
