1:2 He (c-1) In John, the personal pronoun, generally emphatic in Greek where inserted, is used so constantly that it can hardly be considered such in many cases, but certain instances which are considered to be more definitely emphatic are given in italics. The same spirit of emphasis causes the very frequent use of ekeinos for the third person ('he,' 'they,' c.). Its sense is 'that,' contrasted with 'this,' and hence is emphatic as 'that man' in English, sometimes having the sense of 'such a one as that.' A number of cases where this word also is used emphatically have also been indicated.

Verse 1

13:1 end. (a-39) 'To the end' does not give the full force, for it makes it refer to time; whereas going through with everything is implied.

Verse 2

13:2 during (b-2) Or 'being finished.'

Verse 3

13:3 going (c-23) Lit. 'goes.'

Verse 7

13:7 know (d-13) The first 'know' is conscious, the second objective. see Note, 1 Corinthians 8:1 .

Verse 10

13:10 over (e-10) 'Washing applied to the whole body;' the second 'wash' is a different word meaning 'to wash hands or feet.'

Verse 16

13:16 bondman (f-8) See Note, Matthew 10:24 . sent (g-17) Lit. 'apostle.'

Verse 18

13:18 fulfilled, (h-20) See Psalms 41:9 .

Verse 19

13:19 now (i-5) 'From this present time.' He had not told them previously thus; 'now' ('henceforth,' ch. 14.7), is a point of time from or to which time is counted.

Verse 22

13:22 spoke. (k-12) Lit. 'speaks.' so in ver. 24.

Verse 23

13:23 in (l-10) 'in,' here, is en , 'on,' ver. 25, is epi .

13:32 be (a-3) Lit. 'has been.'

Verse 33

13:33 Children (b-1) Teknia . diminutive; an affectionate term, as 1 John 2:1 ,1 John 2:12 ,1 John 2:28 .
