CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
All things are delivered ... - The same doctrine is clearly taught often in the New Testament. See John 3:35; John 6:46; John 10:15; Colossians 1:16-17. It means that Christ has control over all things for the good of his church; that the government of the universe is committed to him "as Mediator," that he may redeem his people and guide them to glory, Ephesians 1:20-22.
No man knoweth the Son - That is, such is the nature of the Son of God, such the mystery of the union between the divine and human nature, such his exalted character as "divine," that no mortal can fully comprehend Jesus. None but God fully knows him. If he had been only a mere man, this language surely would not have been used of him.
Neither knoweth any man the Father ... - In the original this is, neither knoweth "anyone" the Father except the Son. That is, no man or angel clearly and fully comprehends the character of the infinite God; none but the Son - the Lord Jesus - and he to whom he makes him known, have any just apprehensions of his being and perfections.

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him."
"The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.
"I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me."
even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come forth from God and was going back to God,
even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
