CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
I told you - It is not recorded that Jesus had told them in so many words that he was the Christ, but he had used expressions designed to convey the same truth, and which many of them understood as claiming to be the Messiah. See John 5:19; John 8:36, John 8:56; John 10:1. The expression "the Son of God" they understood to be equivalent to the Messiah. This he had often used of himself in a sense not to be mistaken.
The works - The miracles, such as restoring the blind, curing the sick, etc.
In my Father's name - By the power and command of God. Jesus was either the Messiah or an impostor. The Pharisees charged him with being the latter Matthew 26:60-61; Matthew 27:63; John 18:36; but God would not give such power to an impostor. The power of working miracles is an attestation of God to what is taught. See the notes at Matthew 4:24.

"Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am."
"If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
