Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:41-46.


John 6:43-44

_ _ Murmur not ... No man — that is, Be not either startled or stumbled at these sayings; for it needs divine teaching to understand them, divine drawing to submit to them.


John 6:44

_ _ can come to me — in the sense of John 6:35.

_ _ except the Father which hath sent me — that is, the Father as the Sender of Me and to carry out the design of My mission.

_ _ draw him — by an internal and efficacious operation; though by all the means of rational conviction, and in a way altogether consonant to their moral nature (Song of Songs 1:4; Jeremiah 31:3; Hosea 11:3, Hosea 11:4).

_ _ raise him up, etc. — (See on John 6:54).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 6:44

Christ having checked their murmuring, continues what he was saying, John 6:40. No man comes to me, unless my Father draw him — No man can believe in Christ, unless God give him power: he draws us first, by good desires. Not by compulsion, not by laying the will under any necessity; but by the strong and sweet, yet still resistible, motions of his heavenly grace.
