John 7:18 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

His own glory (τὴν δόξαν τὴν ἰδίαν)

Literally, the glow which is His own; the second article throwing His own into sharp contrast with His that sent Him. On His own, see on Acts 1:7; see on Matthew 22:5; see on Matthew 25:15.

The same (οὖτος)

Notice the characteristic use of the pronoun taking up and emphasizing the principal subject of the sentence.

Unrighteousness (ἀδικία)

See on 2 Peter 2:13.
