People's Bible Notes for John 4:35


Joh 4:35 There are yet four months, and [then] cometh the harvest. Harvest began about the middle of April in Palestine. The time when the Savior spoke would then be about the middle of December. But the harvest of souls was ripe already. Lift up your eyes. No doubt he pointed to the Samaritans now flocking out to see him. See Joh 4:39.
