John 8:22 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Will He kill Himself (μήτι ἀποκτενεῖ ἑαυτὸν)?

The mockery in these words is alike subtle and bitter. The interrogative particle, μήτι, signifies surely He will not by any chance kill Himself; and the sense of the whole clause is, He will not surely go where we cannot reach Him, unless perchance He should kill Himself; and as that would insure His going to Gehenna, of course we could not go to Him there. The remark displays alike the scorn and the self-righteousness of the speakers.
