People's Bible Notes for John 4:25


Joh 4:25,26 I know that Messias cometh. Her heart had been made lighter with the great hope of the world. The words of Jesus Christ carried her thoughts to that hope. He had told her much; the Messiah would tell her all things, and give light on every dark question. She perhaps began to suspect that Jesus was the Messiah. The admission that Jesus makes, "I am he", is the first recorded.
