People's Bible Notes for John 1:43


Joh 1:43,44 Findeth Philip, and saith to him, Follow me. This is the first recorded instance of the Savior calling a disciple to follow him. Philip, it must be borne in mind, is not Philip, "one of the seven" (Ac 21:8), but "one of the Twelve", a citizen of Bethsaida of Galilee (Joh 12:21), and a fellow-townsman of Andrew and Peter.

    The Grace of God teaches us to deny ungodliness : The word of God is Truth : The law to my understanding : 5 are toward God and 5 are toward man : If I break one of those laws it is as though I have broken all in God's eyes : Not a one of us has kept the law : For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God : This is where Grace and Truth comes in . Jesus is our Passover Lamb !!!

    I love to read and learn from the Scriptires.
    If the people in Jesus' day, when He was among them, had received him as these first disciples accepted him, our world would be different today. The TRUTH will remain so no matter.how the enemy slices it.

    This chapter gives the unveiling of the Son of God and the key to entering in to eternal salvation . The Lord is God. He is the image of the invisible God. Just as Israel rejected him He is the God of Israel, we need to receive him -not with ref to sin
