Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 4:48-54.

John 4:49

_ _ come down ere my child die — “While we talk, the case is at its crisis, and if Thou come not instantly, all is over.” This was faith, but partial, and our Lord would perfect it. The man cannot believe the cure could be wrought without the Physician coming to the patient — the thought of such a thing evidently never occurred to him. But Jesus will in a moment bring him up to this.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
