People's Bible Notes for John 16:10


Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father. Human tribunals convicted him of blasphemy, because he said he was the Son of God, and put him to death. God exalted him to a throne, thereby showing that the condemnation was wrong and that he was righteous. Of this the Holy Spirit bore witness in words and by miracles.

  • Louis Steyn for verse 10
    Jesus is the Son of God,not a prophet.John 16 23 you will see He refers to His Father and again in John16 13 to the Spirit of Truth who will come after Him.Paul Smart needs to read all the verses, instead of one verse here and there ans coming to wrong conclusions
  • Paul smart for verse 10
    I belive that this verse tells us that the Jesus who lived 2,000 years ago was a prophet, and if you read further in the Bible you read where Jesus talks about one coming after him.
