People's Bible Notes for John 8:35


Joh 8:35 The servant abideth not in the house for ever. The servant has no claim to remain continually in the same family, but may be changed at will. The son can remain because he is the son. The Jews, servants of sin, would soon be expelled from the Lord's house.

Discussion for John 8:35

  • Sigmund Ivarsson for verse 35
    The son of man is the omega. We know that the alpha is the beginning. So the omega comes last but shall be first. In other words one is the seed and the other is the fruit. It is out of the sea of men that the omega comes. That is why he is called the son of man. The storm is upon the sea but the son of man will appear and calm the seas just with his voice. In every field there is sons of God. These are the ones that he son of man seeks to bring back into their proper place of authority. The others who cannot hear this voice are not the children of God and not his concern however everyone is saved. The sons of God and the children of hell. All are saved.
