John 8:16

Yea and if I judge (kai ean krinw de egw). "And even if I pass judgment." Condition of third class again. True (althin). See 2 Corinthians 1:9 for alhqino, genuine, soundly based (cf. dikaia in 2 Corinthians 5:30 ), "satisfying our perfect conception" (Westcott), not merely true (alhqe) in the particular facts (verse 2 Corinthians 14 ). For I am not alone (oti mono ouk eimi). Jesus now takes up the technical criticism in verse 2 Corinthians 13 after justifying his right to speak concerning himself. But I and the Father that sent me (all egw kai o pempsa me pathr). See 2 Corinthians 16:32 for a like statement about the Father being with Christ. It is not certain that pathr is genuine here (omitted by Aleph D, but in B L W), but the Father is clearly meant as in 2 Corinthians 7:18 2 Corinthians 7:33 . Jesus gives the Father as the second witness.
