Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 10:29
- Which (ov).
- Who. If o (which) is correct, we have to take o pathr as nominative absolute or independent, "As for my Father."
- Is greater than all (pantwn meizwn estin).
- If we read ov. But Aleph B L W read o and A B Theta have meizon. The neuter seems to be correct (Westcott and Hort). But is it? If so, the meaning is: "As for my Father, that which he hath given me is greater than all." But the context calls for ov ... meizwn with o pathr as the subject of estin. The greatness of the Father, not of the flock, is the ground of the safety of the flock. Hence the conclusion that "no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand."
