Reformation Study Bible – John 5:21
John 5:21

5:21 the Father raises the dead. A clear affirmation of what is expressed less clearly in the Old Testament. Jesus agrees with the Pharisees against the Sadducees, who denied the resurrection (Matt. 22:23). Raising the dead is possible only for God, yet Jesus claims the power for Himself (v. 25).
