    Clarke's Commentary on John 5:22

    The Father judgeth no man - This confirms what he had said before, John 5:17, John 5:19, that the Father acts not without the Son, nor the Son without the Father; their acts are common, their power equal.

    Barnes' Notes on John 5:22

    Judgeth no man - Jesus in these verses is showing his "equality with God." He affirmed John 5:17 that he had the same power over the Sabbath that his Father had; in John 5:19, that he did the same things as the Father; in John 5:21 particularly that he had the same power to raise the dead. He now adds that God has given him the authority to "judge" men. The Father pronounces judgment on no one. This office he has committed to the Son. The power of judging the world implies ability to search the heart, and omniscience to understand the motives of all actions. This is a work which none but a divine being can do, and it shows, therefore, that the Son is equal to the Father.

    Hath committed ... - Hath appointed him to be the judge of the world. In the previous verse he had said that he had power "to raise the dead;" he here adds that it will be his, also, to "judge" them when they are raised. See Matthew 25; Acts 17:31.

    Wesley's Notes on John 5:22

    5:22 For neither doth the Father judge - Not without the Son: but he doth judge by that man whom he hath ordained, Acts 17:31.
