    Clarke's Commentary on John 16:28

    I came forth from the Father - With whom I existed from eternity in glory.

    Am come into the world - By my incarnation.

    I leave the world - By my death.

    And go to the Father - By my ascension. These four words contain the whole economy of the Gospel of man's salvation, and a consummate abridgment of the Christian faith. This gave the disciples a key to the whole of our Lord's discourse; and especially to that part, John 16:16, that had so exceedingly embarrassed them, as appears by John 16:17, John 16:18.

    Barnes' Notes on John 16:28

    I came forth from the Father - I came sent by the Father.

    And am come into the world - See John 3:19; John 6:14, John 6:62; John 9:39.
