Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 7:30-32.


John 7:31

_ _ When Christ cometh, will he, etc. — that is, If this be not the Christ, what can the Christ do, when He does come, which has not been anticipated and eclipsed by this man? This was evidently the language of friendly persons, overborne by their spiteful superiors, but unable to keep quite silent.
