Wesley's Notes for John 1:46


1:46 Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? - How cautiously should we guard against popular prejudices? When these had once possessed so honest a heart as that of Nathanael, they led him to suspect the blessed Jesus himself for an impostor, because he had been brought up at Nazareth. But his integrity prevailed over that foolish bias, and laid him open to the force of evidence, which a candid inquirer will always be glad to admit, even when it brings the most unexpected discoveries. Can any good thing - That is, have we ground from Scripture to expect the Messiah, or any eminent prophet from Nazareth? Philip saith, Come and see - The same answer which he had received himself from our Lord the day before.


People's Bible Notes for John 1:46


Joh 1:46 Come and see. That is the best answer to the skeptic. Bring him to Christ, let him consider him, and what he has done for mankind. The strongest proof that Jesus is the Christ is Jesus himself.

    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.

    or what we are going thru
  • Daniel
    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
