Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 1:40

_ _ One ... was Andrew — The other was doubtless our Evangelist himself. His great sensitiveness is touchingly shown in his representation of this first contact with the Lord; the circumstances are present to him in the minutest details; he still remembers the Very hour. But “he reports no particulars of those discourses of the Lord by which he was bound to Him for the whole of His life; he allows everything personal to retire” [Olshausen].

_ _ Peter’s brother — and the elder of the two.
