“You have already
By the word
That I have spoken
ἤδη ὑμεῖς καθαροί ἐστε διὰ τὸν λόγον ὃν λελάληκα ὑμῖν·
John uniquely indicated that Jesus said that they had already been cleansed (ἤδη ὑμεῖς καθαροί ἐστε) by the word (διὰ τὸν λόγον) that he had spoken to them (ὃν λελάληκα ὑμῖν). In fact, they had already been pruned or cleansed by the words of Jesus. The process of pruning had already begun. Listening to Jesus was a form of cleansing one’s life. Do you listen to the words of Jesus?
