Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 7:3-5

_ _ His brethren said — (See on Matthew 13:54-56).

_ _ Depart ... into Judea, etc. — In John 7:5 this speech is ascribed to their unbelief. But as they were in the “upper room” among the one hundred and twenty disciples who waited for the descent of the Spirit after the Lord’s ascension (Acts 1:14), they seem to have had their prejudices removed, perhaps after His resurrection. Indeed here their language is more that of strong prejudice and suspicion (such as near relatives, even the best, too frequently show in such cases), than from unbelief. There was also, probably, a tincture of vanity in it. “Thou hast many disciples in Judea; here in Galilee they are fast dropping off; it is not like one who advances the claims Thou dost to linger so long here, away from the city of our solemnities, where surely ‘the kingdom of our father David’ is to be set up: ‘seeking,’ as Thou dost, ‘to be known openly,’ those miracles of Thine ought not to be confined to this distant corner, but submitted at headquarters to the inspection of ‘the world.’” (See Psalms 69:8, “I am become a stranger to my brethren, an alien unto my mother’s children!”)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 7:3

His brethren — So called according to the Jewish way of speaking. They were his cousins, the sons of his mother's sister. Depart hence — From this obscure place.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 7:3

(1) His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

(1) The grace of God comes not by inheritance, but it is a gift that comes in another way: because of this it occurs that the children of God often suffer more affliction from their own relatives than from strangers.
