NET © Notes

tn Grk “Truly, truly, I say to you.”

tn Grk “If anyone keeps.”

tn Grk “my word.”

tn Grk “he will never see death forever.” The Greek negative here is emphatic.

sn Those who keep Jesus’ words will not see death because they have already passed from death to life (cf. 5:24). In Johannine theology eternal life begins in the present rather than in the world to come.
