John 8:28 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Lifted up

See on John 3:14.

Ye shall know (γνώσεσθε)

Render, perceive, here as in John 8:27.

I am He

As in John 8:24, on which see note.

Of myself (ἀπ' ἐμαυτοῦ)

Properly, from myself, as Rev., at John 7:17, but not here. See on John 7:17.

Hath taught (ἐδίδαξεν)

Rev., more correctly, taught. The aorist tense, regarding the teaching as a single act. Compare ἤκουσα, I heard, John 3:32.

I speak these things (παῦτα λαλῶ)

Not equivalent to so I speak (i.e., as the Father taught me), but an absolute declaration with reference to these present revelations.
