John 12:38

12:38 so that the word 1  of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled. He said, 2 Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord 3  been revealed? 4 

John 12:47-48

12:47 If anyone 5  hears my words and does not obey them, 6  I do not judge him. For I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 7  12:48 The one who rejects me and does not accept 8  my words has a judge; 9  the word 10  I have spoken will judge him at the last day.

1 tn Or “message.”

2 tn Grk “who said.”

3 tn “The arm of the Lord” is an idiom for “God’s great power” (as exemplified through Jesus’ miraculous signs). This response of unbelief is interpreted by the author as a fulfillment of the prophetic words of Isaiah (Isa 53:1). The phrase ὁ βραχίων κυρίου (Jo braciwn kuriou) is a figurative reference to God’s activity and power which has been revealed in the sign-miracles which Jesus has performed (compare the previous verse).

4 sn A quotation from Isa 53:1.

5 tn Grk “And if anyone”; the conjunction καί (kai, “and”) has been left untranslated here for improved English style.

6 tn Or “guard them,” “keep them.”

7 sn Cf. John 3:17.

8 tn Or “does not receive.”

9 tn Grk “has one who judges him.”

10 tn Or “message.”
