Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 7:28-29

_ _ cried Jesus — in a louder tone, and more solemn, witnessing style than usual.

_ _ Ye both, etc. — that is, “Yes, ye know both Myself and My local parentage, and (yet) I am not come of Myself.”

_ _ but he that sent me is true, etc. — Probably the meaning is, “He that sent Me is the only real Sender of any one.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:14-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
