Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 11:27
- All things have been delivered unto me of my Father (panta moi paredoth upo tou patrov mou).
- This sublime claim is not to be whittled down or away by explanations. It is the timeless aorist like edoth in 28:18 and "points back to a moment in eternity, and implies the pre-existence of the Messiah" (Plummer). The Messianic consciousness of Christ is here as clear as a bell. It is a moment of high fellowship. Note epiginwskei twice for "fully know." Note also boulhtai =wills, is willing. The Son retains the power and the will to reveal the Father to men.
