“And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:23 The hour is come that the Son of man should be glorified - With the Father and in the sight of every creature. But he must suffer first.
Joh 12:23 The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. The answer of Christ may have been to Philip and Andrew, and the Greeks may have heard and understood it. The substance is that the time of his glorification had come and that glorification would draw all men, Greek, Gentiles as well as Jews, to him.
