    Barnes' Notes on John 16:29

    Now speakest thou plainly - What he had said that perplexed them was that which is contained in John 16:16. Compare John 16:17-19; "A little while and ye shall not see me," etc. This he had now explained by saying John 16:28, "Again, I leave the world, and go to the Father." In this there was no ambiguity, and they expressed themselves satisfied with this explanation.
