John 1:43

Context
The Calling of More Disciples

1:43 On the next day Jesus 1  wanted to set out for Galilee. 2  He 3  found Philip and said 4  to him, “Follow me.”

1 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity. Jesus is best taken as the subject of εὑρίσκει (Jeuriskei), since Peter would scarcely have wanted to go to Galilee.

2 sn No explanation is given for why Jesus wanted to set out for Galilee, but probably he wanted to go to the wedding at Cana (about a two day trip).

3 tn Grk “and he.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

4 tn Grk “and Jesus said.”
