6:37 Everyone whom the Father gives me will come to me, and the one who comes to me I will never send away. 1
6:40 For this is the will of my Father – for everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him to have eternal life, and I will raise him up 2 at the last day.” 3
10:27 My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 10:28 I give 4 them eternal life, and they will never perish; 5 no one will snatch 6 them from my hand.
1 tn Or “drive away”; Grk “cast out.”
2 tn Or “resurrect him,” or “make him live again.”
3 sn Notice that here the result (having eternal life and being raised up at the last day) is produced by looking on the Son and believing in him. Compare John 6:54 where the same result is produced by eating Jesus’ flesh and drinking his blood. This suggests that the phrase in 6:54 (eats my flesh and drinks my blood) is to be understood in terms of the phrase here (looks on the Son and believes in him).
4 tn Grk “And I give.”
5 tn Or “will never die” or “will never be lost.”
6 tn Or “no one will seize.”
