This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

And I (κἀγὼ)

Emphatic. “And I, though I predicted His coming (Joh 1:30), knew Him not.”

Knew Him not

Officially, as the Messiah. There is no reference to personal acquaintance. It is inconceivable that, with the intimate relations between the two families, the Baptist should have been personally unacquainted with Jesus.


Always with the idea of the spiritual privilege of the race.
