Bible Commentary for John 13:35

Wesley's Notes for John 13:35


13:33 Ye cannot come - Not yet; being not yet ripe for it. #John 7:34|.

13:34 A new commandment - Not new in itself; but new in the school of Christ: for he had never before taught it them expressly. Likewise new, as to the degree of it, as I have loved you.

13:36 Peter saith, Lord, whither goest thou? - St. Peter seems to have thought, that Christ, being rejected by the Jews, would go to some other part of the earth to erect his throne, where he might reign without disturbance, according to the gross notions he had of Christ's kingdom. Thou canst not follow me now - But Peter would not believe him. And he did follow him, #Joh 18:15|. But it was afar off. And not without great loss.

Discussion for John 13:35

  • MockingBird on John 13:35
    To have love one to another is as I believe : When you have love to your brother sister means to love them unconditionally as God does : In the face of wrongfully treatment : sarcassim : bitter words : The love of God flowing through you to that person is True love : Also true love is forgiving them before they ever do anything to you or one of your loved ones. Love them as my Lord Jesus God my Father Loves me.
  • Toni on John 13:35
    God is love and love is of God. In order for the people of God to truly have the love Christ speaks of is to be baptised with the Holy Ghost and the fire. Paul states in Romans 5 5 "Because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. " Having God 's Spirit dwelling in us and working through us, then and only then, can we truly love one another and Christ loved us.
  • MockingBird on John 13:35
    The people of the world fight and sue and bicker at and to one another If we the people of God are acting as the worldly people then why would they want anything to do with God and His people!!!
  • Devon Pearce on John 13:35
    I know the different translations make it clearer for us who are Old English challenged, but having love one "TO" another is different than having love "FOR" one another. "To" means the love is demonstrated, actioned upon, not just in your heart. It requires we show this love through our actions, live the love of Christ outward.
  • John Wamboldt on John 13:35
    It is such a wonderful verse. Sometimes we get things mixed up. It does not say "by our doctrine" (though that is important) or by our scholarship (also important). The test to the world’s is our love. We can disagree and still love. We can misunderstand and still love.
  • Sandra palmer on John 13:35
    love my me them i can do more for others
  • David weeks on John 13:35
    Love is an action verb. Love is observable. It is not affection, it is not feeling, it is not compassion, though all these attributes may accompany love, they are not observable actions.
