John 8:42

Ye would love me (hgapate an eme).
Conclusion of second-class condition with distinct implication that their failure to love Jesus is proof that God is not their Father (protasis).

For I came forth from God (egw gar ek tou teou exhlton).
Second aorist active indicative of exerxomai, definite historical event (the Incarnation). See 4:30 for exhlton ek. In 13:3; 16:30 Jesus is said to have come from (apo) God. The distinction is not to be pressed. Note the definite consciousness of pre-existence with God as in 17:5.

And am come (kai hkw).
Present active indicative with perfect sense in the verb stem (state of completion) before rise of the tense and here retained. "I am here," Jesus means.

Of myself (ap' emautou).
His coming was not self-initiated nor independent of the Father. "But he (ekeinov, emphatic demonstrative pronoun) sent me" and here I am.
