Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

If the family of Egypt - This may allude to those Jews who, flying from the persecution of Antiochus Epiphanes, settled in Egypt, and built a temple at Heliopolis, under the direction of Onias, son of the high priest.

The Prophet Amos.

[It was now eighteen months since Jesus had visited Jerusalem, at which time he had healed the impotent man at Bethesda.
