John 15

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.15:7 ask (a-14) Aiteo. see Note a, ch. 14.16. 15:8 this (b-2) 'In this' refers to what follows. no one, I think, can be familiar with John's writings and doubt it. Thus the Father is glorified and they become disciples of his. mine. (c-18) Perhaps more exactly, 'In this will my Father have been glorified that ye have borne much fruit, and ye will have become,' &c. 15:15 of (d-31) Para with gen.. see Note a, ch. 6.45. 15:18 know (e-6) Or 'ye know;' objective knowledge. 15:20 bondman (f-10) Doulos. see Note, Matt. 10.24. 15:25 cause. (g-17) 'Gratuitously,' 'freely,' 'for nothing,' Ps. 35.19 and 69.4. 15:26 from (h-13) with (h-24) Para with gen.. see Note d, ch. 1.14.
