Definitions for John 8 :28

Clarke's Commentary on John 8 :28

When ye have lifted up - When ye have crucified me, and thus filled up the measure of your iniquities, ye shall know that I am the Christ, by the signs that shall follow; and ye shall know that what I spoke is true, by the judgments that shall follow. To be lifted up, is a common mode of expression, among the Jewish writers, for to die, or to be killed.

Barnes' Commentary on John 8 :28

When ye have lifted up - When you have crucified. See John 3:14 note; also John 12:32 note.

The Son of man - See the notes at Matthew 8:19-20.

Then shall ye know - Then shall you have evidence or proof.

That I am he - Am the Messiah, which I have professed to be.

And that I do nothing of myself - That is, you shall have proof that God has sent me; that I am the Messiah; and that God concurs with me and approves my doctrine. This proof was furnished by the miracles that attended the death of Jesus - the earthquake and darkness; but chiefly by his resurrection from the dead, which proved, beyond a doubt, that he was what he affirmed he was - the Messiah.

Wesley's Commentary on John 8 :28

8:28 When ye shall have lifted up - On the cross, ye shall know - And so many of them did, that I AM - God over all; and that I do nothing of myself - Being one with the Father.
