This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Seeth (θεωρεῖ)

Rev., properly, beholdeth. Compare Joh 14:9. The word is purposely chosen to mark an intent, continuous contemplation of Christ, issuing in ever larger knowledge of the Father.

I am come (ἐλήλυθα)

The perfect tense, pointing to the abiding result of His manifestation. Compare Joh 5:43; Joh 7:28; Joh 8:42; Joh 16:28; Joh 18:37.

Abide in darkness

The phrase occurs only here. Compare 1Jo 2:9, 1Jo 2:11; also Joh 8:12; Joh 12:35.
