THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 14 - Verse 10

Verse 10. I am in the Father. See Barnes "Joh 10:38".


The words that I speak, &c. See Barnes "Joh 7:16"

See Barnes "Joh 7:17".


The Father that dwelleth in me. Literally, "The Father remaining in me." This denotes most intimate union, so that the works which Jesus did might be said to be done by the Father. It implies a more intimate union than can subsist between a mere man and God. Had Jesus been a mere man, like the prophets, he would have said, "The Father who sent or commissioned me doeth the works;" but here there is reference, doubtless, to that mysterious and peculiar union which subsists between the Father and the Son.

He doeth the works. The miracles which had been wrought by Jesus. The Father could be said to do them on account of the intimate union between him and the Son. See Joh 5:17,19,36; 10:30.
