Wesley's Notes for John 1:29


1:29 He seeth Jesus coming and saith, Behold the Lamb - Innocent; to be offered up; prophesied of by Isaiah, #Isa 53:7|, typified by the paschal lamb, and by the daily sacrifice: The Lamb of God - Whom God gave, approves, accepts of; who taketh away - Atoneth for; the sin - That is, all the sins: of the world - Of all mankind. Sin and the world are of equal extent.


People's Bible Notes for John 1:29


Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus. Here Jesus first appears, in person, in John's account, who omits all the details given by Matthew and Luke of his earlier life. He was now thirty years old, and came from Galilee to Jordan to be baptized of John. This interview was after the baptism (Joh 1:33), and probably after the Temptation. Behold the Lamb of God. Innocent like the lamb, to be offered as a lamb, "led as a lamb to the slaughter" (Isa 53:7). The lamb was commonly used as a sin offering (Le 4:32), and when John points to Jesus as "the" Lamb of God he can only mean that God had provided him as a sacrificial offering. The sin of the world. Not of Jews only, but of Gentiles. John points to Jesus as the world's Savior.

    One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. Who was the other one?
  • Anna day
    John was a man that knew the truth, he knew that he was not the light and that he came only to witness the light, he understood that Jesus had surpassed him even though he came after him.
  • Toshia
    The Word existed way before the world existed! The word was the source of life! Through HIM God made all things, this makes me think The word, the source of life is His Son Jesus Christ. John was a messenger to give us insight on The light to come, where Christ came from
  • LYLE R SHORT
    This verse relates to Matthew 15:24. Israel belonged to him and most of them did not receive him as who he is, their Messiah. One needs to read on in John to get the complete message. Jesus was not here to minister to Gentiles during his earthly life, but he later sent Paul for that purpose.
  • To show
    Jesus is God controversy has been ongoing for centuries. It is mostly based on Greek translations of words that John had no idea that they would be misconstrued and subsequently cause so much division in orthodoxy. Understanding a Greek word in English can lead the reader down a slippery slope of what the true meaning really is. Once you get the correct meanings everything falls into place.
