Jesus was signifying how he was going to die (Jn 12:33-12:33)

“Jesus said this

To indicate

The kind of death

He was to die.”

τοῦτο δὲ ἔλεγεν σημαίνων ποίῳ θανάτῳ ἤμελλεν ἀποθνήσκειν.

Then John uniquely indicated that Jesus had said this (τοῦτο δὲ ἔλεγεν) to indicate or signify (σημαίνων) the kind of death (ποίῳ θανάτῳ) he was about to die (ἤμελλεν ἀποθνήσκειν).  John wanted to be clear, so that there was no misunderstanding.  Jesus was talking about his future death on the cross that would save the world and draw all people to him.  What do you think about Jesus’ death on the cross?
