John 15:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

For my name's sake (διὰ τὸ ὄνομά μου)

Literally, on account of my name. The name of Christ represented the faith, the attitude, the claims, and the aim of the disciples. His name was their confession. Luther says: "The name of Christ from your mouth will be to them nothing but poison and death."
