12:32 Lifted up from the earth - This is a Hebraism which signifies dying. Death in general is all that is usually imported. But our Lord made use of this phrase, rather than others that were equivalent, because it so well suited the particular manner of his death. I will draw all men - Gentiles as well as Jews. And those who follow my drawings, Satan shall not be able to keep.
Joh 12:32 If I shall be lifted up from the earth. Lifted up: (1) to the cross; (2) from the grave; (3) to heaven and the eternal throne.

The original text does not have "men " in it. Jesus is talking about the kind of death he is going to die crucifixtion "He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die. John 12:33 " and "draw all to myself ". The word 960 945 957 964 945 962 all might mean 1 individually 2 each, every, any, all, the whole, everyone, all things, everything 3 collectively 4 some of all types. I personally think he is talking about sin judgement - he is drawing all sin judgement onto him, so that his role as sacrificial Lamb is fulfilled.

I have come to the place where I perceive God 's grace as all powerful, and all encompassing, where once in Wesleyan tradition , one 's ultimate salvation was dependant on first coming to faith, then "being saved ". I now see the Will of God is that ALL will be "drawn " to Him, some in this life, and the rest at the Last Day, when "every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess, that Jesus is Lord.. Phil 2.10 . Like any "Will ", and especially God 's Will, all shall come to faith, not as a prerequisite of, but as a consequence, of the salvation accomplished for ALL even Lucifer , and thus Death itself is defeated. Such a loving God could not abide the loss of even one of His creatures.

To ber,s rev. Dollar is a great minister and though I do not speak Greek I believe he is correct. However I believe that translation is holy inspired of all. That add emphasis to the scripture because the bible interpts the bible. All men is what Jesus died for all sinners past, present, and future. The sheep that Jesus spoke of as not being of that flock that he referred to. From those who dies in the great flood of Noah,s time, those in Jesus time, those in our time through the paradise of the millennium end. All men is very powerful meaning all men.

To me John 12 32 Sound good now, before it was very difficult, but after I received this explanation of, If I shall be lifted up from the earth. Lifted up 1 to the Cross 2 from the Grave 3 to the Heaven.

I just heard Dollar teach that the men that is italicized in this verse does not appear in the original greek. It is the translators addition in to the KJ version of the bible. Is that true? what do you think does "all " implies in this verse?

Truly Jhn. 12 32 talking and signify Gods ' praise. If I be lifted up, from the earth, I will draw all men unto my self. If we praise and worship God in the beauty of holiness, and in spirit and in truth, people will be encourage wishing to know how good is in signs, all colors will worship and serve him.

Jesus spoke to Nicodemus in John 3 said "just as Moses lifted up the bronze snake in the wilderness,so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life. Looking at the text in Numbers 21 4 8 we see that the israelites spoke against God and Moses ans God sent snakes amongst them and they were bitten, some died, Moses interceded for the people and the LORD instructed Moses to make a bronze image of a snake on a pole and everyone who was bitten was healed from the snake bite once they looked at it. So in a sense the bronze snake took the the sting of death from the snake bite. So John 12 32 and John4 12 is to be viewed in parallel to this scenario. Now it clear that in the original text of John 12 32 "men " is not there. So what did Jesus draw to Him when He was lifted up? Now the israelites were bitten by snakes and a bronze image of a snake was made and looking upon it made them recover, Jesus who knew no sin became sin, and on the cross He drew all sin and thus you and I have life once we acknowledge His Lordship over us. Snake bite bronze snake recover. Sin sting of sin death Jesus becoming sin on the cross eternal life for us . John3 14,

Gracie's comment on 2012-11-21 05:13:44:
If we, as Christians would not be ashamed to live the word of God every day and worship and praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, He would be lifted up. For as the scripture also says, "He (Jesus) inhabit the praises of His people." When He inhabits, He comes in with the blessing of God, where others may see, Jews and Gentiles alike worshiping in the love and Spirit of God and drawing near to Him to glorify our Lord, He will draw others to come.
Geri's comment on 2012-01-07 13:49:01:
I was mistaken in my thinking. I understood the verse to mean the following:
If I be lifted up = praising God, lifting our voices in praise and worship to God Almighty.
In that = He (God) would draw all men unto him.
