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.

    And His name is called the Word of GOD Revelation 19:13.
  • Apo6
    The Word IS Christ. Someone commented that because those scriptures said the word WAS God that the word was separate from God; The Word 'WAS' was used only because that chapter was written about PAST events, it is therefore Past Tense. It has nothing to do with the Word being Separated from God.
