John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 12:21

These came to Philip of Bethsaida in Galilee — Perhaps they used to lodge there, in their journey to Jerusalem. Or they might believe, a Galilean would be more ready to serve them herein, than a Jew. Sir — They spake to him, as to one they were little acquainted with. We would see Jesus — A modest request. They could scarce expect that he would now have time to talk with them.
