Central Idea: The Son gives testimony to the Father, so receiving him (or not) is the basis for eternal life or damnation. Vs. 31a-c - The Son is over everyone (not just John the Baptist) because He has come from heaven. (31d mimics 31a to form a kind of three-part anti-parallelism, but I take "heaven" to be part of what Jesus has "seen and heard." Some texts do not have "is above all" in 31d, thus linking "He who comes from heaven" directly to "bears witness" in vs. 32, and that seems to be the idea here regardless of the specific original wording.) Vss. 31d-35 - Only the Son has come from Heaven and can bear witness to heavenly things (Cp vs. 12), but people don't believe. Receiving the Son's testimony is equivalent to receiving the Father, because the Son speaks the words of God. God has given all things to the Son, including the Spirit. (God gave the Spirit to men, like the prophets, in measure, but the Son has the Spirit without measure.) Vss. 35-36 - Since the Son stands for the Father, receiving Him (or not) is the basis for eternal life or damnation. "Believes" in 36a parallels "obey" in 36b, making these somewhat synonymous. ("Faith without works is dead" James 2).
