John 10:30-33

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

10:31 The Jewish leaders 3  picked up rocks again to stone him to death. 10:32 Jesus said to them, 4  “I have shown you many good deeds 5  from the Father. For which one of them are you going to stone me?” 10:33 The Jewish leaders 6  replied, 7  “We are not going to stone you for a good deed 8  but for blasphemy, 9  because 10  you, a man, are claiming to be God.” 11 

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 the phrase refers to the Jewish leaders. See the notes on the phrases “Jewish people” in v. 19 and “Jewish leaders” in v. 24.

4 tn Grk “Jesus answered them.”

5 tn Or “good works.”

6 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.

7 tn Grk “answered him.”

8 tn Or “good work.”

9 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).

10 tn Grk “and because.”

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