“Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.”
King James Version (KJV)
7:34 Ye shall seek me - Whom ye now despise. These words are, as it were, the text which is commented upon in this and the following chapter. Where I am - Christ's so frequently saying while on earth, where I am, when he spake of his being in heaven, intimates his perpetual presence there in his Divine nature: though his going thither was a future thing, with regard to his human nature.
Joh 7:34 Where I am, [thither] ye cannot come. Not while on earth, neither after life is over, if they die in their sins (Joh 8:21). The Jews did not comprehend his words, plain as they are to us.
