Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:53-58.


John 6:57

_ _ As the living Father hath sent me — to communicate His own life.

_ _ and I live by the Father — literally, “because of the Father”; My life and His being one, but Mine that of a Son, whose it is to be “of the Father.” (See John 1:18; John 5:26).

_ _ he that eateth me, ... shall live by me — literally, “because of Me.” So that though one spiritual life with Him, “the Head of every man is Christ, as the head of Christ is God” (1 Corinthians 11:3; 1 Corinthians 3:23).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

I live by the Father — Being one with him. He shall live by me — Being one with me. Amazing union!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 6:57

As (t) the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the (u) Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

(t) In that Christ is man, he receives that power which quickens and gives life to those that are his, from his Father: and he adds this word "the" to make a distinction between his Father and all other fathers.

(u) Christ means that although he is man, yet his flesh can give life, not by its own nature, but because his flesh lives by the Father, that is to say, sucks and draws out of the Father that power which it has to give life.
