    Joh 6:27; 8:18 Mt 3:17; 17:5

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:37

    Y el que me envi, el Padre, l dio testimonio de mí. Ni nunca habis oído su voz, ni habis visto su parecer.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 5:37

    Verse 37. The
    Father himself-hath borne witness] That is, by his prophets.

    Ye have neither heard his voice] I make these words, with Bp. Pearce, a parenthesis: the sense is-"Not that my Father ever appeared visibly or spake audibly to any of you; but he did it by the mouths of his prophets." Lately, however, he had added to their testimony his own voice from heaven, on the day of Christ's baptism. See Matt. iii. 17.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 37. And the Father himself, which hath sent me , etc.] Not only the works he gave him to do, and which he did, but he himself in person: hath borne witness of me ; not only in the writings of Moses, and the prophecies of the Old Testament, but by an audible articulate voice from heaven, at the time of Christs baptism, ( Matthew 3:17); which was a full testimony of the sonship of Christ, and of the Fathers well pleasure in him; and which was repeated at his transfiguration on the mount, ( Matthew 17:5); and the sonship of Christ is the grand thing which the three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, testify of, ( 1 John 5:7); ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape ; for the voices that were heard, and the forms that were seen under the Old Testament dispensation, from the first of this kind in Edens garden, to the incarnation of Christ, which are ascribed to God, or to a divine person, were either by the ministry of angels, or they were voices uttered by the Son of God, or forms assumed by him, who often appeared in an human form, as a prelude of his incarnation; so that it was unusual, and wonderful, and remarkable, that the Father should bear a testimony to the sonship of Christ by a voice from heaven; and which therefore ought to be attended to, and received as a sufficient and valid testimony.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 30-38 - Our
    Lord returns to his declaration of the entire agreement between the Father and the Son, and declared himself the Son of God. He had highe testimony than that of John; his works bore witness to all he had said But the Divine word had no abiding-place in their hearts, as the refused to believe in Him whom the Father had sent, according to his ancient promises. The voice of God, accompanied by the power of the Holy Ghost, thus made effectual to the conversion of sinners, stil proclaims that this is the beloved Son, in whom the Father is wel pleased. But when the hearts of men are full of pride, ambition, an the love of the world, there is no room for the word of God to abide in them.

    Voice - shape. Not referring to the descent of the dove and the voice from heaven at Jesus' baptism, but generally and figuratively to God's witness in the Old Testament Scriptures. This is in harmony with the succeeding reference to the word.
