John 10:30

10:30 The Father and I 1  are one.” 2 

John 10:33

10:33 The Jewish leaders 3  replied, 4  “We are not going to stone you for a good deed 5  but for blasphemy, 6  because 7  you, a man, are claiming to be God.” 8 

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

2 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).

3 tn Or “the Jewish authorities”; Grk “the Jews.” Here again the phrase refers to the Jewish leaders. See the notes on the phrase “Jewish people” in v. 19 and “Jewish leaders” in vv. 24, 31.

4 tn Grk “answered him.”

5 tn Or “good work.”

6 sn This is the first time the official charge of blasphemy is voiced openly in the Fourth Gospel (although it was implicit in John 8:59).

7 tn Grk “and because.”

8 tn Grk “you, a man, make yourself to be God.”
