John 10:29-30

Context
10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, 1  and no one can snatch 2  them from my Father’s hand. 10:30 The Father and I 3  are one.” 4 

1 tn Or “is superior to all.”

2 tn Or “no one can seize.”

3 tn Grk “I and the Father.” The order has been reversed to reflect English style.

4 tn The phrase ἕν ἐσμεν ({en esmen) is a significant assertion with trinitarian implications. ἕν is neuter, not masculine, so the assertion is not that Jesus and the Father are one person, but one “thing.” Identity of the two persons is not what is asserted, but essential unity (unity of essence).
