A few words on this text, regarding the notes in the margins or footnotes of many Bibles regarding 1 John 5:7-8. a. The New King James Bible makes a marginal note on 1 John 5:7-8, stating that the words in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one A Healing and a Discourse. A. Jesus heals a man at the pool of Bethesda. 1. ( Jhn 5:1-4) The pool of Bethesda. After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people. Commentary on John 5:24-29 (Read John 5:24-29) Our Lord declared his authority and character, as the Messiah. The time was come when the dead should hear his voice, as the Son of God, and live. Our Lord first refers to his raising those who were dead in sin, to newness of life, by the power of the Spirit, and then to his raising the dead in. In the healing of the crippled man at Bethesda (John 5:1-16), the man clearly desires to be healed, but no one would help him down to the pool (verse 7). The Bible's mention of this detail is an intentional rebuke of the heartlessness and meanness of human nature. It was every man for himself
This has been the case with 1 John 5:7 and 8, and we applaud the honesty of the translators of modern versions who have left it out of their translations. The famous textual scholar, F. F. Bruce, does not even mention the addition in his commentary on 1 John (The Epistles of John). The International Critical Commentary does not mention it. 1 John 5:7-8 The Holy Bible teaches that the God Family currently consists of two fully divine Beings, God the Father and God the Son. However, most nominal Christians believe we should add a third distinct Being, the Holy Spirit, to what is called the Godhead, forming a Trinity, a term that does not appear anywhere in Scripture This is the footnote accompanying 1 John 5:7 in the NET Bible. The NET Bible mentions the Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament by Bruce Metzger, published first in 1971 and corrected in 1975. Here are the comments from it (pages 715-717) Regarding the use of the present tense ejstin and its implications for the dating of the Gospel of John, see the previous discussion on the date of the Gospel (pp. 14-15 above) and the article by D. B. Wallace, John 5,2 and the Date of the Fourth Gospel, Biblica 71 (1990): 177-205
Although 1 John 5:7, as it reads in the King James Version, is a clear Trinitarian statement, there does not seem to be much chance that it is original with First John. This verse should not be used in discussions concerning the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. There is sufficient evidence in Scripture for the Trinity without appealing to 1. 1 John 5:7, REV Bible and Commentary. Indeed, there are three testifying: Indeed.. The Greek hoti ( #3754 ὅτι) is not being used in a causal sense here, but in the sense of indeed, in fact. (cp. S. Smalley, Word Biblical Commentary: 1, 2, 3 John ). The text note in the NET First Edition says, It is probably best.
1 John 5:7(NASB) Verse Thoughts. There is one God, for the Lord our God is One - one immortal, invisible, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present, holy and eternal God. He alone is to be worshipped for He alone is the Lord - and He will not share His glory with another. But that one God is manifested in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy. 1 John 5-7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Here it is claimed that the verse shows that in heaven there are the father, word and Holy spirit and they are all one. A perfect representation of the trinity. I won't be dealing with the does the verse as found in. 1 John 5:7 was in the Spanish Bibles, beginning with the one printed in Valencia in 1478 by Bonifacio Ferrer (M'Crie, History of the Reformation in Spain, p. 191). It is probable that 1 John 5:7 was in the Bohemian or Czech Bible printed by the Brethren in 1488. 1 John 5:7 stood uncontested in English Bibles for 500 years. The first English. Debunking Erasmus' inclusion of 1 John 5:7 (also known as the Johannine Comma or Comma Johanneun) in the third edition of the Textus Receptus is considered a trump card in the discrediting of both Erasmus and his text.. A frequently made allegation, is that the Comma should not be included in scripture, because it is not included in ancient manuscripts
Scholars often disagree with each other, but John Gill, in his well known commentary on the entire Bible, remarks concerning 1 John 5:7: It is cited by Athanasius about the year 350 (Contra Arium p. 109); and before him by Cyprian in the middle of the third century, about the year 250 (De Unitate Eccles. p. 255. & in Ep. 73. ad Jubajan, p.

The Lame Man Healed John 5:1-9. After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches (John 5. Jude verses 5-7 shatter the belief in a God who acts in love without judgement. He is a perfect God who acts in judgement out of His righteousness. God is love (1 John 4:8), but God is also holy (1 Peter 1:16). When holiness and love are combined, judgement, as well as grace, is the result
The belief and use of 1 John 5:7-8 causes the name of Christ (through the term 'Christianity') to be blasphemed among the Gentiles (Romans 2:24; Isaiah 52:5). No honest translator should have ever included it in the Bible as anything other than a footnote that it was improperly added in later centuries as a pretended addition to the text The Expositor's Bible Commentary also dismisses the King James and New King James Versions' additions in 1 John 5:7-8 1 John 5:7-8  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one Jesus declared that one must be born again to enter the kingdom of God (John 3:3, 5, 7). Jesus also made it clear that those who will not believe will be condemned (John 3:16-21). Jesus further declares that those who refuse to come to Him would die in their sins (John 8:24) Biblical Commentary (Bible study) John 5:1-9 EXEGESIS: JOHN 1-4. THE CONTEXT In chapter 2 Jesus worked his first sign, turning water into wine (2:1-12). He then went to Capernaum for a brief visit (2:12), after which he went to Jerusalem for the Passover festival. While there, he cleansed the temple. Many believe
Finally, I John 5:7-8 fits the immediate context; in fact, it is an indispensable component of the surrounding verses. Metzger, in his Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament , argues that as regards intrinsic probability, the passage [The Johannine Comma ] makes an awkward break in the sense John 5:7 Context. 4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. 5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt. Biblical Commentary (Bible study) 1 John 5:9-13 EXEGESIS: THE CONTEXT: This is a pastoral letter to churches in conflict--written to address the conflict and to prevent its spread. A number of scholars think of this as a sermon in written form. The problems in the churches were caused by false teacher Lesson 23: John 5-7-New Testament Teacher Manual. Introduction and Timeline. In addition to being doctrinally rich, chapters 5-7 of John highlight a wide assortment of attitudes toward Jesus Christ, including some of the opposition and hostility that eventually resulted in His death.After commanding a man with a 38-year infirmity to rise and walk (), the Savior taught that all. Excelent commentary! John Stott does a masterful job explaining the text, connecting the pieces the whole, and relating Scripture to real life. Most importantly, it touches the heart and increases your love for Christ! I highly recommend this book
The Johannine Comma (Latin: Comma Johanneum) is a phrase in verses 5:7-8 of the First Epistle of John which is often considered to be interpolated. It became a touchpoint for Protestant and Socinian and Unitarian and Catholic debates over the doctrine of the Trinity in the early modern period.. In our extant manuscripts, the passage first appears in some Latin manuscripts which are dated. John 5:1-18 Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus saw a thirty-eight year old man lying on his mat at the pool of water at Bethesda. Because He cared about the man, Jesus was willing to pay a high personal cost to heal him. Jesus performed a miracle or sign as the apostle John called them
Bible Commentary for 1 John 5:7 Wesley's Notes for 1 John 5:7 5:7 What Bengelius has advanced, both concerning the transposition of these two verses, and the authority of the controverted verse, partly in his Gnomon, and partly in his Apparatus Criticus, will abundantly satisfy any impartial person John is noted for referring to Christ as the Word. If 1 John 5:7 were an interpretation of verse eight, as some have suggested, than we would expect the verse to use Son instead of Word. However, the verse uses the Greek word logos, which is uniquely in the style of John and provides evidence of its genuineness. Also, we find John drawing.

In contrast to the three members of the Godhead who bear record in heaven (1 John 5:7 in the King James Bible), there are three that bear record in earth (verse 8). Let us look at them.

The Bible says God will allow a great delusion to overcome all who love not the truth. This is a reference to the end-time defection from the true faith -Luke 12:54-56, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 10-11.

Commentary on the Gospel of John (Book X) Some one, no doubt, will ask about the words of the Apostle, where he writes to the Corinthians: 1 Corinthians 5:7 For our Passover also was sacrificed for us, namely, Christ; he does not say, The Passover of the Lord was sacrificed, even Christ The evidence most likely supports the shorter reading of 1 John 5:7-8, yet this in no way changes the Bible's teachings regarding the Triune nature of God. There is one God in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who have each existed for all eternity and live in perfect unity to fulfill God's plan in our world and lives John does not explicitly state what the Judeo-Davidite did to conquer here, but an indirect allusion is given in verse 6.

Gill, called the great Baptist Hebraist of England by B. H. Carroll (Interpretation of the English Bible, vol 1. ch. 8), stood firmly against the disbelieving rationalist. In his Gospel, John proclaimed that Jesus, the light of the world, had come to illuminate truth and to lead men and women to God (John 1:4-9; 8:12).

This would violate other teachings and divine examples that Christ has revealed in His word (see: Matthew 7:15; John 5:30; 7:24).

The First Epistle of John, often referred to as First John and written 1 John or I John, is the first of the Johannine epistles of the New Testament, and the fourth of the catholic epistles.There is no scholarly consensus as to the authorship of the Johannine works.The author of the First Epistle is termed John the Evangelist, who most scholars believe is not the same as John the Apostle Information on 1 John. The relationship of 1 John to the fourth gospel has been the subject of much scholarly debate. Kummel argues that the gospel and the letter are from the same author (Introduction to the New Testament, pp. 442-5).Norman Perrin presents a solution that connects the redactor of John with the author of the letter (The New Testament: An Introduction, pp. 222-3)
John 1. THE GOSPEL OF JOHN was evidently written some time after the other three Gospels. Matthew, Mark and Luke had each told, in their divinely appointed way, the story of the birth, early years and entrance into ministry of Jesus Christ, and John takes their record for granted, since without it his opening paragraphs would be hardly intelligible (John 10:25-26) John records that Jesus had previously answered their question. (John 7; 37, 8:12, 24, 35-38, 58) The Lord has identified Himself as coming from the Father, doing the Father's will, being the Light of the world and the Good Shepherd.
