John 12:45 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Seeth (θεωρεῖ)

Rev., properly, beholdeth. Compare John 14:9. The word is purposely chosen to mark an intent, continuous contemplation of Christ, issuing in ever larger knowledge of the Father.

I am come (ἐλήλυθα)

The perfect tense, pointing to the abiding result of His manifestation. Compare John 5:43; John 7:28; John 8:42; John 16:28; John 18:37.

Abide in darkness

The phrase occurs only here. Compare 1 John 2:9, 1 John 2:11; also John 8:12; John 12:35.
