People's Bible Notes for John 15:11


Joh 15:11 These things have I spoken . . . that my joy may remain in you. Strange words, that one about to be crucified should speak of his joy! His joy was union with and presence of the Father. He had "anointed him with the oil of gladness above his fellows" (Ps 45:7). He desired his disciples to have that joy, the constant consolation of the sense of the presence of Christ.
