John 5:20 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Greater works than these - Two of these he immediately mentions: Raising the dead, John 5:21. And judging the world, John 5:22.

That ye may marvel - Or, So as to make you wonder. Our Lord sometimes speaks of himself as God, and sometimes as the ambassador of God. As he had a human and Divine nature, this distinction was essentially necessary. Many errors have originated from want of attention to this circumstance.
