Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 8:13-19.


John 8:16

_ _ And yet if I judge, my judgment is true, etc. — Ye not only form your carnal and warped judgments of Me, but are bent on carrying them into effect; I, though I form and utter My judgment of you, am not here to carry this into execution — that is reserved to a future day; yet the judgment I now pronounce and the witness I now bear is not Mine only as ye suppose, but His also that sent Me. (See on John 5:31, John 5:32). And these are the two witnesses to any fact which your law requires.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 8:12-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 8:16

I am not alone — No more in judging, than in testifying: but I and the Father that sent me — His Father is in him, and he is in the Father, John 14:10-11; and so the Father is no more alone without the Son, than the Son is without the Father, Proverbs 8:22-23, Proverbs 8:30. His Father and he are not one and another God, but one God, (though distinct persons,) and so inseparable from each other. And though the Son came from the Father, to assume human nature, and perform his office as the Messiah upon earth, as God is sometimes said to come from heaven, for particular manifestations of himself; yet Christ did not leave the Father, nor the Father leave him, any more than God leaves heaven when he is said to come down to the earth.
