Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 4:39-42

_ _ many ... believed, etc. — The truth of John 4:35 begins to appear. These Samaritans were the foundation of the Church afterwards built up there. No miracle appears to have been wrought there (but unparalleled supernatural knowledge displayed): “we have heard Him ourselves” (John 4:42) sufficed to raise their faith to a point never attained by the Jews, and hardly as yet by the disciples — that He was “the Savior of the world” [Alford]. “This incident is further remarkable as a rare instance of the Lord’s ministry producing an awakening on a large scale” [Olshausen].
