Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - John 8:1-59

John 8:11-12 See what the Light said of Himself, John viii. 11 and 12: 'Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.' These two verses ought never to have been severed. Their meaning consists in their union; the 'neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more,' the sanctifying forgiveness of God manifested in Christ is the light of life,... read more

Expositor's Bible Commentary - John 8:21-59

Chapter 19JESUS REJECTED IN JERUSALEM.“He said therefore again unto them, I go away, and ye shall seek Me, and shall die in your sin: whither I go, ye cannot come. The Jews therefore said, Will He kill Himself, that He saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come? And He said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe that I am He, ye shall die in your sins. They said... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - John 8:1-59

CHAPTER 8 1. The Woman Taken in Adultery. (John 8:1-11 .) 2. The Light of the World. (John 8:12 .) 3. His Testimony Concerning Himself and the Father. (John 8:13-20 .) 4. His Solemn Declarations. (John 8:21-47 .) 5. Before Abraham Was, I Am. (John 8:48-59 .) The first verse belongs to the preceding chapter. The officers returned without Him, bearing their testimony that “never man spake like this man.” Nicodemus ventured his timid defense. Then every man went to his own house while the... read more

Geneva Study Bible - John 8:59

8:59 {21} Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.(21) Zeal without knowledge eventually breaks out into a most open madness: and yet the wicked cannot do what they desire. read more

L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible - John 8:1-59

A WOMAN CAUGHT IN ADULTERY (vs.1-11) While others went to their homes, the Lord spent the night in the mount of Olives, away from all the words and thoughts of men, in the calm of His Father's presence. Nor does He leave Jerusalem after the feast, but comes early in the morning to teach the people. Scribes and Pharisees have been divinely thwarted in their efforts to kill Him, and again they resort to subterfuge. Bringing a woman whom they say has been caught in the act of adultery, they... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - John 8:1-59

FEAST OF TABERNACLES The story of the fourth and last visit to Judea is too long and important to gather into one lesson, and will be broken up into three or four, the first of which bears the above title. How did Jesus’ brothers regard him at this time (John 7:2-5 )? What hesitancy did He exhibit in going up to this feast (John 7:6-9 )? This feast took place in the fall, corresponding to our October. This chapter and the next are identified as those of the controversies in the Temple. They... read more

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - John 8:1-59

Joh 8:3-11 "And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, they say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - John 8:43-59

Why do ye not understand my speech; even because ye cannot hear my word. (44) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (45) And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. (46) Which of you convinceth me of sin? and if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? (47) He... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - John 8:59

REFLECTIONS Precious Lord Jesus! may my soul gaze with rapture on every feature of thy divine Person, while by faith I behold thee, as in this Chapter, pardoning the poor Adulteress; and manifesting the mercy of thine heart. Oh! thou dear Lord! well is it for thine Adulteress Church, that thou art a God, pardoning iniquity, transgression, and sin; or what would have become of all thy redeemed. And Lord! I find new occasion to admire, to love, to adore, my compassionate God, in that he brings... read more

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - John 8:54-59

54-59 Christ and all that are his, depend upon God for honour. Men may be able to dispute about God, yet may not know him. Such as know not God, and obey not the gospel of Christ, are put together, 2 Thessalonians 1:8. All who rightly know anything of Christ, earnestly desire to know more of him. Those who discern the dawn of the light of the Sun of Righteousness, wish to see his rising. "Before Abraham was, I AM." This speaks Abraham a creature, and our Lord the Creator; well, therefore, might... read more
