Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 1:43
- On the morrow (thi epaurion).
- The fourth of the days from verse 19.
- He findeth Philip (euriskei Pilippon).
- Vivid dramatic present as in 41, though htelhsen (was minded, wished) is aorist active indicative. Apparently not an accidental finding, possibly due to the efforts of Andrew and Peter. Both Andrew and Philip have Greek names.
- Follow me (akoloutei moi).
- Present active imperative, a direct challenge to Philip. Often Jesus uses this verb to win disciples (Mark 2:14; Matthew 8:22; 9:21; :; Luke 9:59; John 21:19). Already Jesus had four personal followers (Andrew and Simon, John and James). He has begun his work.
