John 14:23 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If a man - Not only my present disciples, but all those who shall believe on me through their word, or that of their successors:

At this they exclaimed, "Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that whoever obeys your word will never taste death.
"If you love me, keep my commands.
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them."
Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love.
No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.
