1 John 3:14 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

We know

Emphatic; we as distinguished from the world.

Have passed (μεατβεβήκαμεν)

Lit., have passed over.

From death (ἐκ τοῦ θανάτου)

Lit., out of the death. The article marks it as one of the two spheres in which men must be; death or life. The death, the life, present one of those sharp oppositions which are characteristic of the Epistle; as love, hatred; darkness, light; truth, a lie. Ὁ θάνατος the death, occurs in John's Epistles only here and in the next clause. In the Gospel, only John 5:24. Personified in Revelation 1:18; Revelation 6:8; Revelation 9:6; Revelation 20:13.

Unto life (εἰς τὴν ζωήν)

Rev., better, into. Compare enter into the life, Matthew 28:8; Matthew 19:17.

Because

The sign of having passed into life; not the ground.

We love the brethren (ἀγαπῶμεν του,ς ἀδελφούς)

The only occurrence of the phrase. Elsewhere, love one another, or love his brother. See on 1 John 2:9.

His brother

Omit.
