John 7:28 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Then (οὗν)

Rev., rightly, therefore, giving the reason for the succeeding words in Jesus' emotion awakened by the misconceptions of the people.

Cried (ἔκραξεν)

See on Mark 5:5; see on Mark 9:24.

As He taught (διδάσκων)

Better, Rev., teaching. The expression cried teaching implies speaking in a peculiarly solemn manner and with an elevation of voice.

Me - whence Iam

Conceding the truth of the people's statement in John 7:27, we know this man whence he is, so far as His outward person and His earthly origin were concerned. He goes on to show that they are ignorant of His divine relationship.

True (ἀληθινὸς)

True to the ideal of a sender: a genuine sender in the highest sense of the term. See on John 1:9.
