Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 1:49

_ _ Son of God ... King of Israel — the one denoting His person, the other His office. How much loftier this than anything Philip had said to him! But just as the earth’s vital powers, the longer they are frost-bound, take the greater spring when at length set free, so souls, like Nathanael and Thomas (see on John 20:28), the outgoings of whose faith are hindered for a time, take the start of their more easy-going brethren when loosed and let go.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 1:43-51.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 1:49

Nathanael answered — Happy are they that are ready to believe, swift to receive the truth and grace of God. Thou art the Son of God — So he acknowledges now more than he had heard from Philip: The Son of God, the king of Israel — A confession both of the person and office of Christ.
