John 6:62 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

What and if ye shall see (ἐὰν οὐν θεωρῆτε)

The question is marked by an aposiopesis, i.e., a breaking off of the sentence and leaving the hearer to complete it for himself. Literally, if then ye should behold, etc. - the completion would be, would not this still more cause you to stumble?

Ascend (ἀναβαίνοντα)

Rev., properly, renders the participle, ascending.

I speak (λαλῶ)

But the correct reading is λελάληκα, the perfect tense, I have spoken, or I have just spoken, referring to the preceding discourse.
