“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:51 If a man keep my word - So will my Father consult my glory. We keep his doctrine by believing, his promises by hoping, his command by obeying. He shall never see death - That is, death eternal. He shall live for ever. Hereby he proves that he was no Samaritan; for the Samaritans in general were Sadducees.
Joh 8:51 If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Here again is a condition and a promise. Notice (1) Its universal character: If any one, Jew or Gentile, male or female, bond or free. (2) The condition: "Keep my words". By obedience we are not only freed, but enter into life. (3) The promise: "Shall not see death". Death of the body is not reckoned death, but merely the gate through which the believer enters upon a more perfect life. The real death is that of the soul.
Uerely, verely I say vnto you, If a man keepe my saying, hee shall neuer see death.
