Barnes' Notes
<< John 1:38   John 1:40 >>


John 1:39

Come and see - This was a kind and gracious answer. He did not put them off to some future period. Then, as now, he was willing that they should come at once and enjoy the full opportunity which they desired of his conversation. Jesus is ever ready to admit those who seek him to his presence and favor.

Abode with him - Remained with him. This was probably the dwelling of some friend of Jesus. His usual home was at Nazareth.

The tenth hour - The Jews divided their day into twelve equal parts, beginning at sunrise. If John used their mode of computation, this was about four o' clock p. m. The Romans divided time as we do, beginning at midnight. If John used their mode, it was about ten o' clock in the forenoon. It is not certain which he used.
