John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 7:34

Ye shall seek me — Whom ye now despise. These words are, as it were, the text which is commented upon in this and the following chapter. Where I am — Christ's so frequently saying while on earth, where I am, when he spake of his being in heaven, intimates his perpetual presence there in his Divine nature: though his going thither was a future thing, with regard to his human nature.
