"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will DRAW all men unto me."

Jesus said: (Speaking of Himself)

Joh 12:31 Now is the JUDGEMENT of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Joh 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will DRAW all men unto me.

Jesus said: (Speaking of the Father)

Joh_6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me DRAW him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh_6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

If the word "DRAW" in John 12:31 means the same thing as "DRAW" in John 6:45 then we must conclude that Jesus is the Father. Which of course is absurd.

The Father DRAWS MEN TO JESUS - they have heard and learned from the Father - not Jesus.

What did Jesus mean when he said: "[I] will DRAW *all* men unto me."

Jesus was referring to JUDGEMENT.... (Now is the judgement of the world 12:31)

On the day of Judgement Jesus will draw ALL men to JUDGEMENT -

Joh 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute JUDGEMENT also, because he is the Son of man.

Joh 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which ALL that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

Joh 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation


Jesus draws all men to Him for judgement.
