John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 8:19

Then said they to him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered — Showing the perverseness of their question; and teaching that they ought first to know the Son, if they would know the Father. Where the Father is — he shows, John 8:23. Meantime he plainly intimates that the Father and he were distinct persons, as they were two witnesses; and yet one in essence, as the knowledge of him includes the knowledge of the Father.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 8:19

(6) Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

(6) No man can know God except in Christ alone.
