Wesley's Notes for John 10:30


10:30 I and the Father are one - Not by consent of will only, but by unity of power, and consequently of nature. Are - This word confutes Sabellius, proving the plurality of persons: one - This word confutes Arius, proving the unity of nature in God. Never did any prophet before, from the beginning of the world, use any one expression of himself, which could possibly be so interpreted as this and other expressions were, by all that heard our Lord speak. Therefore if he was not God he must have been the vilest of men.


People's Bible Notes for John 10:30


Joh 10:30,31 I and [my] Father are one. Are so united that the Father is pledged to keep the sheep of the Son. These words the Jews held to be blasphemy, and sought to stone him. Compare 8:52.

    **JOHN 10:30 I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE** 1 CORINTHIANS 8:5 for though there be that are called gods whether in heaven or in earth as there be gods many and lords many-8:6-but to us there is but one GOD THE FATHER of whom are all things and we in HIM and one LORD JESUS CHRIST by whom are all things and we by HIM 1 TIM 2:5 for there is one GOD and one mediator between GOD and men the man JESUS CHRIST

    Yes, and though this can be discouraging, it only serves to confirm the truth of God’s Word, (see 2 Tim 4:3-4) but in verse 5 is the answer. He speaks specifically to Timothy here, but the instruction to all is clear: watch. We are to watch and pray. If something you hear doesn’t ring true, check it; search the scriptures. It is good practice to check out the preacher, even if you you know him.

    Verse 39,...Therefore they sought again to take him:" but he escaped out of their hand", this vanishing of Jesus happened many times in Luke 4:30," But he passing through the mist of them went his way"...This is a great Miracle by GOD, just when Jesus was going to be stoned or apprehended suddenly time was frozen and stood still and he just walk away ,there is no other explanation. a Miracle.
  • Michael Conrad
    And how many who have come after our LORD are also thieves and robbers? This may not be taken well but my only intent is to be truthful. I find that in most of our denominations today we find men who claim to speak truth about Jesus Christ but subtily preach a gospel that does not save but instead only tickles ears. Not that we who are in His word should be surprised because we were warned.
  • Mark
    Those who were in leadership could not understand they were face to face with the coming Messiah, which was held in the scriptures given to them to teach and be an example. Jesus is not calling us all gods. He is making a reference to their inflated sense of authority in relation to their impending judgement of supposed blasphemy.
  • Servant of God
    The door, the Shepard and the Porter, and we sheep who graze whilst the wolf looks on with hunger pangs, are mindlessly involved ingrazing. The Shepherd is watchfull with uncanny intuition and looks to the door of the Porter, which door only he, and those whom he chooses can open. On the other side is a garden, free of predators, evil thoughts, and longings for all are content, fruitful,present
