Discussion for John 1:37

  • Anthony Ritchie on John 1:37
    John says that Andrew followed him and told Simon Peter about him and they followed him.

    The other scriptures say they were in a boat and he called them and they immediately left the boat and followed him. How do these relate to aone another?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 1:37
    I think we can take the Matthew 4:18-22 to be the actual calling of the men to follow Him.

    The John 1:40, 41 shows that Andrew & Simon Peter were only introduced to Jesus. Andrew of course was one of John the Baptist's disciples who went after Jesus to find out where He was going to stay the night.

    Then in John 1:43 ff, Philip & Nathaniel follow Jesus on the following day(Mt 4:18 & Jn 1:43), which could tie up with the day that the other men were called in Matthew chapter 4.
