William Barclay's Daily Study Bible - John 6:35-40

6:35-40 Jesus said to them: "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never hunger, and he who believes in me will never thirst any more. But I tell you, though you have seen me, yet you do not believe in me. All that the Father gives me will come to me, because I came down from heaven, not to do my will, but to do the will of him who sent me. This is the will of him who sent me--that I should lose none of those he gave to me, but that I should raise them all up on the last day. This... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - John 6:37

All that the Father giveth me ,.... The "all" design not the apostles only, who were given to Christ as such; for these did not all, in a spiritual manner, come to him, and believe in him; one of them was a devil, and the son of perdition; much less every individual of mankind: these are, in some sense, given to Christ to subserve some ends of his mediatorial kingdom, and are subject to his power and control, but do not come to him, and believe in him: but the whole body of the elect are... read more

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - John 6:37

All that the Father giveth me - The neuter gender, παν , is probably used here for the masculine, πας . Shall come to me - All that are drawn by the Father, John 6:44 , i.e. all those who are influenced by his Spirit, and yield to those influences: for as many as are Led (not driven or dragged) by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God, Romans 8:14 . God sent his prophets to proclaim his salvation to this people; and he accompanied their preaching with the influence of... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - John 6:37

Verse 37 37.All that the Father giveth me. That their unbelief may not detract anything from his doctrine, he says, that the cause of so great obstinacy is, that they are reprobate, and do not belong to the flock of God. His intention, therefore, in distinguishing here between the elect and the reprobate is, that the authority of his doctrine may remain unimpaired, though there are many who do not believe it. For, on the one hand, ungodly men calumniate and utterly despise the word of God,... read more

(3) The sequel of the signs . The discussion which follows is closely linked with these two great miracles of power and love. It naturally arises out of them, and refers with great explicitness to the former of them and to its true meaning. The discussion does unquestionably alter its scope as it proceeds, and at John 6:41 and John 6:52 "the Jews" take up a controversy which had previously been conducted by a portion of the crowd who witnessed his mighty works. Jesus declared (1) ... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - John 6:34-40

The divergence between the thoughts of Jesus and those of the Jews. A rupture was clearly at hand. The people had hopes of merely material blessing. I. THE JEWS ASK FOR THE BREAD FROM HEAVEN . "Lord, evermore give us this bread." 1 . They ask for a continuous supply of it . 2 . Their demand betrays a carnal spirit, that speaks of either sensual want, or covetousness, or the spirit of idleness; for no more labour would be expended upon the production of food.... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - John 6:37

Many suppose a time of stillness, a break in the conversation, "a significant asyndeton, " from the absence of all connection between this and the previous verse. John 6:39 , John 6:40 would seem to have been addressed more directly to the disciples, the less susceptible hearers retiring from him or engaging in eager conversation (cf. John 6:41 ). Nevertheless, the Lord takes up the continuous line of his self-revelation, and John 6:37 clearly refers the "non-coming" and... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - John 6:37-40

The Father's will and its Executor. We see: 1 . That the majority of Christ 's hearers disbelieved him . His verdict at last was, "Ye believe not;" "Ye will not come." 2 . That they disbelieved him in spite of the greatest advantages to faith . ( John 6:36 .) 3 . That in spite of their obstinate unbelief and cruel rejection, the gracious purposes of God and the mission of Jesus will not be void . "For all that the Father giveth me," etc. Notice— I.
