Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 11:27

_ _ All things are delivered unto me of my Father — He does not say, They are revealed — as to one who knew them not, and was an entire stranger to them save as they were discovered to Him — but, They are “delivered over,” or “committed,” to Me of My Father; meaning the whole administration of the kingdom of grace. So in John 3:35, “The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand” (see on John 3:35). But though the “all things” in both these passages refer properly to the kingdom of grace, they of course include all things necessary to the full execution of that trust — that is, unlimited power. (So Matthew 28:18; John 17:2; Ephesians 1:22).

_ _ and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will — willeth

_ _ to reveal him — What a saying is this, that “the Father and the Son are mutually and exclusively known to each other!” A higher claim to equality with the Father cannot be conceived. Either, then, we have here one of the revolting assumptions ever uttered, or the proper divinity of Christ should to Christians be beyond dispute. “But, alas for me!” may some burdened soul, sighing for relief, here exclaim. If it be thus with us, what can any poor creature do but lie down in passive despair, unless he could dare to hope that he may be one of the favored class “to whom the Son is willing to reveal the Father.” But nay. This testimony to the sovereignty of that gracious “will,” on which alone men’s salvation depends, is designed but to reveal the source and enhance the glory of it when once imparted — not to paralyze or shut the soul up in despair. Hear, accordingly, what follows:

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 11:27

All things are delivered to me — Our Lord, here addressing himself to his disciples, shows why men, wise in other things, do not know this: namely, because none can know it by natural reason: none but those to whom he revealeth it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 11:27

(6) All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].

(6) There is no true knowledge of God, nor quietness of mind, but only in Christ alone.
