John 2:17

Context
2:17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal 1  for your house will devour me.” 2 

John 19:29

Context
19:29 A jar full of sour wine 3  was there, so they put a sponge soaked in sour wine on a branch of hyssop 4  and lifted it 5  to his mouth.

1 tn Or “Fervent devotion to your house.”

2 sn A quotation from Ps 69:9.

3 sn The cheap sour wine was called in Latin posca, and referred to a cheap vinegar wine diluted heavily with water. It was the drink of slaves and soldiers, and was probably there for the soldiers who had performed the crucifixion.

4 sn Hyssop was a small aromatic bush; exact identification of the plant is uncertain. The hyssop used to lift the wet sponge may have been a form of reed (κάλαμος, kalamo", “reed,” is used in Matt 27:48 and Mark 15:36); the biblical name can refer to several different species of plant (at least eighteen different plants have been suggested).

5 tn Or “and brought it.”
