John 7:34 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Ye shall seek me

Not as now, for disputation or violence, but for help.

Where Iam

In absolute, eternal being and fellowship with the Father. I am (ἐγω εἰμι) is the formula of the divine existence (John 8:58). The phrase carries a hint of the essential nature of Jesus, and thus prepares the way for ye cannot come (see on John 7:7). The difference in character will make it essentially impossible.
