Two things Christ here comforts his disciples with:? I. That they should be under the tuition of his Spirit, John 14:25, 26, where we may observe, 1. The reflection Christ would have them make upon the instructions he had given them: These things have I spoken unto you (referring to all the good lessons he had taught them, since they entered themselves into his school), being yet present with you. This intimates, (1.) That what he had said he did not retract nor unsay, but ratify it, or stand... read more

William Barclay's Daily Study Bible - John 14:25-31

14:25-31 "I have spoken these things to you while to you while I am still with you. The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I have said. I am leaving you peace: I am giving you my peace. I do not give it to you as the world gives peace. Let not your heart be distressed or fear-stricken. You have heard that I said to you: 'I am going away and I am coming to you.'

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost ,.... Before spoken of, John 14:16 , for whom Christ promised to pray the Father that he might be given to them. The word used there, as here, signifies an "advocate", and is so rendered, 1 John 2:1 , a patron, one that pleads and defends, the cause of another, before kings and princes; so the Jewish writers F26 Maimon. & Bartenora in Pirke Abot, c. 4. sect. 11. use the word פרקליט , the same with παρακλητος , here, and give this... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - John 14:25-26

These things (in antithesis to the "all things" of which he is about to speak), namely, the great consolations and instructions just delivered not the whole course of his ministerial prophetic teaching— have I uttered , and these things I am stilt continuing to address to you, while remaining with you ; but the Paraclete ( Advocate ), of whom I have spoken as the "Spirit of truth," and whom I now more fully define as the Holy Spirit (this is the only place in this Gospel where this... read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - John 14:25-26

How the teaching of Jesus becomes abiding and effectual. I. THE POWERLESSNESS OF TRUTH . Jesus continually remembered this. No one, indeed, had more complete experience as to the inability of the natural man to receive spiritual things; and even here, when perhaps the disciples were unusually attentive, Jesus knew that they would be more than ever perplexed. And there was nothing in the mere lapse of time to make the meaning clearer, the promises more receivable, the duties... read more

John 14:25-27. These things have I spoken, being yet present I have spoken these things during my personal presence with you briefly, because my time with you is short. But the Comforter, whom the Father will send in my name For my sake, in my room, and as my agent; he shall teach you all things Necessary for you to know; as if he had said, Though you may not now understand many of the particulars mentioned by me, you shall have a perfect knowledge of them afterward.
