(48) He that rejecteth me . . .--The word rendered "rejecteth" (more exactly nullifieth) occurs only here in St. John. (Comp. Luke 7:30, "The Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves"; and John 10:16, "He that despiseth you despiseth Me.)

Hath one that judgeth him.--Comp. John 3:18; John 5:45 et seq.; John 8:50; and also Hebrews 4:12.

The word that I have spoken.--The very fact that He was so rejected was itself the judgment of those who rejected it.

Verse 48. - He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my sayings (ῤήματα), hath one that judgeth him - perhaps, that which judgeth him - the word (λόγος) which I spake, that will judge him at the last day. There is no more awful utterance than this (romp. 1 John 4:17; 2 Corinthians 5:10, where the irresistible power of a searching inviolable Law is vindicated). How strange that some critics should, with a view to disparage the authenticity of the Gospel, make it appear that there is no reference in it to judgment to come, or to the last day, and should deliberately ignore this feature of the Johannine Gospel! 12:44-50 Our Lord publicly proclaimed, that every one who believed on him, as his true disciple, did not believe on him only, but on the Father who sent him. Beholding in Jesus the glory of the Father, we learn to obey, love, and trust in him. By daily looking to Him, who came a Light into the world, we are more and more freed from the darkness of ignorance, error, sin, and misery; we learn that the command of God our Saviour is everlasting life. But the same word will seal the condemnation of all who despise it, or neglect it.
