Who is the “Prince of the world” mentioned in verse 30 in chapter 14 of the gospel of John? Where it is written: “I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me.” From a Christian point of view Jesus (peace and blessings be upon all prophets) no other prophet shall follow.
In John’s Gospel the expressions: “Prince of the world” or “ruler of this world” refer to Satan. Satan (cf. John 14:30; 16:11) ruled the world (1 John 5:19); Jesus’s death releases all who believe in him from his power. (cf. John 3:35: “The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands.”). According to the Father’s will everything is “in the hand” of the son, that is, in his power. This is the basis for his Kingdom (John 12:13-15) which he will establish on the day of his glorification (= crucifixion and resurrection). Raised to the right hand of the Father in glory (John 17:5) Christ will send his Holy Spirit (John 7:39) and through him spread his rule across the whole world.
