Wesley's Notes for John 12:27


12:27 Now is my soul troubled - He had various foretastes of his passion. And what shall I say? - Not what shall I choose? For his heart was fixed in choosing the will of his Father: but he laboured for utterance. The two following clauses, Save me from this hour - For this cause I came - Into the world; for the sake of this hour (of suffering) seem to have glanced through his mind in one moment. But human language could not so express it.


People's Bible Notes for John 12:27


Joh 12:27 Now is my soul troubled. It is the shadow of the cross and the tomb. The best comment on this verse is to compare it with the account of the agony in the garden. Here he exclaims: Father, save me from this hour. There, "If it be possible, let this cup pass from me" (Mt 26:39). Here, he adds: But for this cause came I unto this hour. There, "Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done" (Lu 22:42). Here the perfect resignation that follows the struggle in his soul is in the prayer, "Father, glorify thy name" (Joh 12:28).
