People's Bible Notes for John 10:40


Joh 10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan. He had been nearly three months in Jerusalem, a very stormy ministry. Twice efforts were made to mob him (Joh 8:59 10:31); twice, to arrest him (Joh 7:32,45 10:39). His time would not come yet for three months, till the next passover, and he retired from the storm for a season. In the other gospels there are recorded a number of the incidents of his ministry beyond the Jordan.
