1886 edition. Excerpt: ...believers in general, but it has in view,
nevertheless, first of all, the disciples personally, whom Jesus
wishes to strengthen in their present disheartenment; and He
consoles them, it is said, by means of an event which no one of
them has seen and which is still future at this hour In thus
explaining the word I come, it is forgotten that Jesus never
affirmed the nearness of His Parousia, and that, indeed, He rather

tautology. This coming refers, therefore, as has been recognized by
Lucke, OUhausen, Neander, to the return of Jesus through the Holy
Spirit, to the close and indissoluble union formed thereby between
the disciple and the glorified person of Jesus;...
