Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 8:21-25.


John 8:23

_ _ Ye are from beneath; I am from above — contrasting Himself, not as in John 3:31, simply with earthborn messengers of God, but with men sprung from and breathing an opposite element from His, which rendered it impossible that He and they should have any present fellowship, or dwell eternally together. (Again see on John 7:33; also see on John 8:44).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 8:21-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 8:23

Ye are — Again he passes over their interruption, and proves what he advanced, John 8:21. Of them that are beneath — From the earth. I am of them that are above — Here he directly shows whence he came, even from heaven, and whither he goes.
