Jesus leaving and the coming Comforter

May 5,2019

 

 

John 16:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

 

John 16:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

 

John 16:7 New International Version (NIV)
7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

 

John 16:7 English Standard Version (ESV)
7 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.


International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Expedient:
eks-pe'-di-ent (sumphero): The Greek word translated "expedient" (sumphero) means literally, "to bear or bring together"; with a personal reference, "to be well or profitable." In the New Testament it never means "profitable" or "convenient" as opposed to what is strictly right. It is translated "expedient" (Joh 11:50, "it is expedient for us," the Revised Version (British and American) "for you"; Joh 16:7, "It is expedient for you that I go away," i.e. "profitable," "for your good," 18:14; 1Co 6:12; 10:23; 2Co 8:10; 12:1). In Mt 19:10, instead of "not good to marry," the Revised Version (British and American) has "not expedient." The modern sense of "expediency" as "hastening" or "acceleration," is not found in the New Testament, any more than its bad sense of "mere convenience." "Nothing but the right can ever be expedient" (Whately).

According to Whately it is never “acceleration” or mere “convenience”

Greek: sumphero
Expedient:
signifies
(a), transitively, lit., "to bring together," (sun, "with," phero, "to bring"), Act 19:19;
(b) intransitively, "to be an advantage, profitable, expedient" (not merely 'convenient'); it is used mostly impersonally, "it is (it was) expedient;" so in Mat 19:10, RV (negatively), AV, "it is (not) good;" Jhn 11:50; 16:7; 18:14; 1Cr 6:12; 10:23; 2Cr 8:10; 12:1; "it is profitable," Mat 5:29, 30; 18:6, RV; "was profitable," Act 20:20; "to profit withal," 1Cr 12:7; in Hbr 12:10, used in the neuter of the present participle with the article as a noun, "for (our) profit."
See PROFIT. Cp. the adjective sumphoros (or sumpheron), "profitable," used with the article as a noun, 1Cr 7:35; 10:33.
 
 
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.


8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

 

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

 

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

 

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

 

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

 

14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
