Bible Commentary for John 12:32

Wesley's Notes for John 12:32

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.

    I saw it in a dream last night.. I saw it with my own eyes ?
  • Gerry King on John 12:32
    John 3:14-21 teaches of the salvation message for all mankind. John 12:27-33 speaks of Jesus' bearing of all sin judgement for all mankind and all creation. His soul was not troubled in John 3:14-21, but at the point of knowing the horrible burden He alone had to bear for us was about to manifest, He said "My soul is troubled" in John 12:27. Thank you Lord Jesus that You said, "Nevertheless, not My will but Your will be done." All I can say is what a Profound Savior, Who saves us to utmost!!!!!!! To HIM and HIM alone is all praise due!!!!!!! HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD was sufficient to ALMIGHTY GOD our ABBA. to pay the price of sin's judgement bill...!!!!!!!

    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.
  • George N.K Yeboah on John 12:32

    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.

  • Katlego Motlhabane on John 12:32
    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,
