John 3:17 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For God sent not, etc. - It was the opinion of the Jews that the Gentiles, whom they often term the world, עלמה olmah, and אומות העולם omoth haolam, nations of the world, were to be destroyed in the days of the Messiah. Christ corrects this false opinion; and teaches here a contrary doctrine. God, by giving his Son, and publishing his design in giving him, shows that he purposes the salvation, not the destruction, of the world - the Gentile people: nevertheless, those who will not receive the salvation he had provided for them, whether Jews or Gentiles, must necessarily perish; for this plain reason, There is but one remedy, and they refuse to apply it.

For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.
"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish--the very works that I am doing--testify that the Father has sent me.
nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.
Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
but I know him because I am from him and he sent me."
