 The Son of God declared that which He knew, and that which He had seen with His Father. (John 3 by J.N. Darby)
 The Son of God declared that which He knew, and that which He had seen with His Father. The defiled nature of man could not be in relationship with Him who revealed Himself in heaven whence Jesus came. (John 3 by J.N. Darby)
 He knew what was in God, and alone of men could testify of Him without testimony about Him. (Endnotes from John 3 by W. Kelly)
 Jesus spoke what He knew. Coming from God, and being Himself God, He knew the Divine nature perfectly, and was here a man to reveal it to men. (Endnotes from John 3 by W. Kelly)
 "And ye receive not our testimony.” It declares God, and reveals the Father. It leaves no room for receiving glory one of another. It condemns man as he is, self-willed and proud, not only without heart for God, but unwilling to believe what is in His heart for man expressed in every word and way of Jesus. (Endnotes from John 3 by W. Kelly)
