Bible Commentary for John 16:6

Wesley's Notes for John 16:6


16:4 I did not tell you these things at the beginning, because I was with you - To bear the chief shock in my own person, and to screen you from it.

16:5 None of you asketh me - Now when it is most seasonable. Peter did ask this before, #John 13:36|.

16:7 It is expedient for you - In respect of the Comforter, #John 16:7|, &c, and of me, #John 16:16|, &c, and of the Father, #John 16:23|, &c.

16:8 He - Observe his twofold office; toward the world, #John 16:8|, &c; toward believers, #John 16:12|, &c: will convince - All of the world - Who do not obstinately resist, by your preaching and miracles, of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment - He who is convinced of sin either accepts the righteousness of Christ, or is judged with Satan. An abundant accomplishment of this we find in the Acts of the Apostles.
