22 For the Father [a]judgeth [b]no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son,
John 5:22This word (judgeth) is taken by the figure Synecdoche, for all government.
John 5:22These words are not so to be taken, as though they simply denied that God governeth the world, but as the Jews imagined it, which separate the Father from the Son, whereas indeed, the Father doth not govern the world but only in the person of his Son, being made manifest in the flesh: so saith he afterward, verse 30, that he came not to do his own will: that his doctrine is not his own, John 7:16, that the blind man and his parents sinned not, etc., John 9:3.
