John 9:4 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I must work (ἐμὲ δεῖ ἐργάζεσθαι)

The best texts read ἡμᾶς, us, instead of ἐμὲ, me. Literally, it is necessary for us to work. The disciples are thus associated by Jesus with Himself. Compare John 3:11.

Sent me, not us

The Son sends the disciples, as the Father sends the Son.
