Jn. 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. A. There is a strict cause and consequence development in this text. 1. Drawing is the cause of coming 2. Coming is the cause for being raised up If a person begins at the close of the verse and reverses the cause and consequence development by saying: "Who are those who are raised up? Only those who come to christ. Hence not all drawn are raised up but only those who come to Christ." This statement reverses the cause and consequence development from the first to the last of the verse. Reversing it is the only way to avoid that: 1. No man can come but "him" drawn" 2. Hence "him" drawn is the only one that comes 3. Hence, "him" raised is the one that comes. B. There is a strict repetitive use of the singular third person masculine in this verse. 1. The "him" identifies who is drawn - 2. The "him" identifies who is raised 3. The "no man" is singular not plural and so Christ is considering man on an individual basis only. So, the only "man" that can come to Christ is "him" singular that is drawn. So who comes to Christ? "Him" and only "him" that is drawn! So, the only man" that Christ raises up is "him"! Who is this "him" that is raised up by Christ. The text supplies no other "him" to chose but the "him" that is drawn and comes to Christ. This is common sense as Christ will not raise to life those who do not come to him. Therefore, "him" drawn is "him" that comes which is also "him" raised. The only way to avoid or deny this conclusion is to repudiate the first singular "him" and replace it with a plural inference by way of interpretation to suggest the allusion that there are more drawn than a singular "him" which come or are raised. Thus, such an interpretation would claim many are drawn but not all come and therefore not all are raised. However, this requires rejection and replacement of the singular "him" by way of explanation. CONCLUJSION: There are only two possible ways to deny that "him" which is drawn is "him" which comes and is raised - him drawn equal all who come and all who are raised. One way is to ignore and overrule the cause and consequence order by starting at the end of the verse and reasoning backwards. The other is to replace and reinterpret the singular "him" to suggest that more are drawn than actually come and are raised.
