Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 1:39

_ _ Come and see — His second utterance, more winning still.

_ _ tenth hour — not ten a.m. (as some), according to Roman, but four p.m., according to Jewish reckoning, which John follows. The hour is mentioned to show why they stayed out the day with him — because little of it remained.
