John 1:41 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

He first findeth (εὑρίσκαι οὗτος πρῶτος)

Rev., findeth first. He is the demonstrative pronoun, this one, which, with first, seems to point to the later finding of his brother by the other disciple, i.e., of James by John. Bengel says: "With the festival freshness of those days beautifully corresponds the word findeth, which is frequently used here."

His own (τὸν ἴδιον)

See on Matthew 22:5; see on Matthew 25:15; see on Acts 1:7; see on 1 Peter 1:3.

We have found (εὑρήκαμεν)

This has been called the chapter of the Eurekas.

The Messias

Peculiar to this Gospel, and only here and John 4:25.

Christ

See on Matthew 1:1.
