Wesley's Notes for John 8:19


8:19 Then said they to him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered - Showing the perverseness of their question; and teaching that they ought first to know the Son, if they would know the Father. Where the Father is - he shows, #John 8:23|. Meantime he plainly intimates that the Father and he were distinct persons, as they were two witnesses; and yet one in essence, as the knowledge of him includes the knowledge of the Father.


People's Bible Notes for John 8:19


Joh 8:19 Where is thy Father? Asked in scorn, because he said "the Father beareth witness of me" (Joh 8:18). If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father. The knowledge of Christ leads to a knowledge of the Father. See Joh 14:8.
