1 John 4:9 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Toward us (ἐν ἡμῖν)
Wrong. Not "among us," as John 1:14, nor "in us;" but as Rev., in margin, in our case.
John describes the incarnation as a sending, more frequently than in any other way. Ἁποστέλλω is to send under commission, as an envoy. The perfect tense, hath sent, points to the abiding results of the sending. See on 1 John 3:5.
His only-begotten Son (τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν μονογενῆ)
Lit., His Son, the only-begotten (Son). A mode of expression common in John, enlarging upon the meaning of a noun by the addition of an adjective or a participle with the article. See 1 John 1:2; 1 John 2:7, 1 John 2:8, 1 John 2:25; 1 John 5:4; John 6:41, John 6:44, John 6:50, John 6:51; John 15:1, etc. On only-begotten, see on John 1:14.
