Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for John 4:22


4:22 Ye worship ye know not what - Ye Samaritans are ignorant, not only of the place, but of the very object of worship. Indeed, they feared the Lord after a fashion; but at the same time served their own gods, #2Kings 17:33|. Salvation is from the Jews - So spake all the prophets, that the Saviour should arise out of the Jewish nation: and that from thence the knowledge of him should spread to all nations under heaven.


People's Bible Notes for John 4:22


Joh 4:22 Salvation is of the Jews. In the controversy between the Jews and Samaritans, the former was right on the great issue. The Samaritans worshiped, but knew not what they worshiped, because they rejected the prophets who would have directed them.
