1 1 “If I be lifted up” John 12:32

2 2 23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. 27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. 30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 33 This he said, signifying what death he should die. John 12:23-32

4 4 Introduction This statement not one of doubt! A juxtaposition regarding Satan! (D. King) Juxtaposition = “an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast.” - Dictionary.com “Prince of this world” – vs. 31 (Satan) Would be cast out – Not be lifted up! Christ would be lifted up! “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. Victorious over sin and death! “Will draw all men unto me” “all men” = Both Jews & Gentiles (Eph. 2:11-19; Rom. 5:18) “draw” = in a peaceful non violent way (cf. Jn. 6:44)

5 CHRIST Lifted Up! Signified His Death Would be glorified Draw all men “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again” – vs. 28 “will draw all men unto me” – vs. 32 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out” – vs. 31 SATAN Cast out (down)!

Christ the fulfillment of the law and the prophets! Moses symbolized the Law Elias symbolized the prophets The Voice from Heaven declared… “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” Christ was exalted by the Father! Phil. 2:9; Acts 5:31

8 8 Christ was Lifted Up - At His Resurrection – Bodily! David prophesied of it and had hope! Ps. 16:8-11 Christ foretold it! Jn. 2:12-22; 20:19-31 Peter & apostles proclaimed it on Pentecost! Acts 2:22-36 Paul preached it! 2 Tim. 2:8; 1 Cor. 15:20-22

11 11 How Man Benefits because Christ was lifted up! John 12:32

12 12 John 12: And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. 27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. 30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

13 13 Adam Clark On… “I will draw all men unto me” “I will draw all men unto me.” “After I shall have died and risen again, by the preaching of my word and the influence of my Spirit, I shall attract and illuminate both Jews and Gentiles. It was one of the peculiar characteristics of the Messiah, that unto him should the gathering of the people be, (Genesis 49:10). And probably our Lord refers to the prophecy, Isaiah 11:10, which peculiarly belonged to the Gentiles: ‘…There shall be a root of Jesse which shall stand for an ENSIGN of the people, to it shall the GENTILES seek, and his rest shall be glorious.’ There is an allusion here to the ensigns or colours of commanders of regiments, elevated on high places, on long poles, that the people might see where the pavilion of their general was, and so flock to his standard. “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”
