Chapter Summary

The second quotation of fulfillment on the lips of Jesus, the last one spoken by him, is given to explain the hatred the world has for Jesus. The formula of introduction is longest in John and probably the longest in N.T. and occurs nowhere else. Apparently the formula, "that the word written in their law might be fulfilled", is synonymous for words, "that the scripture might be fulfilled", used by Jesus in 13:18. Since in Jn 15:20 Jesus speaks about himself and his disciples being persecuted, perhaps the writer had in mind Psalms 69 or combination of several passages. In these psalms the psalmists are describing their enemies who hate and persecute them without cause. In Jn Jesus is said to apply words of psalmist(s) to Jews in such a way as to show that his persecution and hatred by Jews without cause had been prophesied in their own law.
