John 6:60 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Hard (σκληρός)

See on Matthew 25:24; see on Jde 1:14. According to the Greek order, hard is this saying.

Hear it (αὐτοῦ ἀκούειν)

Αὐτοῦ may be rendered Him, but this is not probable. Hear means a docile hearing, with a view to receiving what is heard. Compare John 10:3, John 10:16, John 10:27; John 12:47; John 18:37.
