Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:37-40.


John 6:40

_ _ And this — in the second place.

_ _ is the will of Him that sent Me, that every one which seeth the Son and believeth on Him — seeing the Son believeth on Him.

_ _ may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day — This is the human side of the same thing as in the foregoing verse, and answering to “Him that cometh unto Me I will in no wise cast out”; that is, I have it expressly in charge that everyone that so “beholdeth” (so vieweth) the Son as to believe on Him shall have everlasting life; and, that none of Him be lost, “I will raise him up at the last day.” (See on John 6:54).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 6:40

Here is the sum of John 6:37-39. This is the will of him that sent me — This is the whole of what I have said: this is the eternal, unchangeable will of God. Every one who truly believeth, shall have everlasting life. Every one that seeth and believeth — The Jews saw, and yet believed not. And I will raise him up — As this is the will of him that sent me, I will perform it effectually.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 6:40

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which (l) seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

(l) Seeing and believing are joined together: for there is another type of seeing which is general, which the demons have, for they see: but here he speaks about that type of seeing which properly belongs to the elect.
