For the Father judges no one, but he has given all judgment to the Son,
Young's Literal Translation
for neither doth the Father judge any one, but all the judgment He hath given to the Son,
John 5:22 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Judgeth no man - Jesus in these verses is showing his "equality with God." He affirmed John 5:17 that he had the same power over the Sabbath that his Father had; in John 5:19, that he did the same things as the Father; in John 5:21 particularly that he had the same power to raise the dead. He now adds that God has given him the authority to "judge" men. The Father pronounces judgment on no one. This office he has committed to the Son. The power of judging the world implies ability to search the heart, and omniscience to understand the motives of all actions. This is a work which none but a divine being can do, and it shows, therefore, that the Son is equal to the Father.
Hath committed ... - Hath appointed him to be the judge of the world. In the previous verse he had said that he had power "to raise the dead;" he here adds that it will be his, also, to "judge" them when they are raised. See Matthew 25; Acts 17:31.

and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.
And Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind."
"And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.
