“Of sin, because they believe not on me;”
King James Version (KJV)
16:9 Of sin - Particularly of unbelief, which is the confluence of all sins, and binds them all down upon us.
Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me. In naming sin, the chief of all sins is singled out. All sin springs from unbelief. To destroy sin, the heart of man must be pierced with the sword of the Spirit. Hence, the aim of the Spirit on Pentecost, and always, is to destroy unbelief.
