New Defender's Study Bible Notes
12:26 where I am. And where is Jesus? “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). Such an assembly would usually (but not necessarily) be in an organized local church.
12:26 my servant. In this verse, the two occurrences of “serve” should be read in the sense of “minister to.” The word “servant, however, means “bondslave.”
12:26 my father honour. That is, when Christ returns. Note I Peter 1:7.
