Treasury of Scripture

And he that sees me sees him that sent me.

John 12:41
These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

John 14:9,10

John 15:24
If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.









(45) He that believeth on me, believeth not on me.--These words do not occur literally in any discourse of our Lord which we now have, but the thought has met us again and again. (Comp. John 5:36; John 7:16; John 7:29; John 8:19; John 10:38.) We are not to weaken the words "not on Me but," into "not (only) on Me but," as is often done. Jesus came not in His own name (John 5:43), but in that of the Father. The Son claimed no position independent of the Father. He was the representative of the Father, and those who believed in Him believed not in the representative as apart from, but in that He represented, the Sender. The same thought occurs in Mark 9:37. (Comp. Note there.) . . .
