John 1:40

Andrew (Andrea). Explained by John as one of the two disciples of the Baptist and identified as the brother of the famous Simon Peter (cf. also Mark 6:8 ; Mark 12:22 ). The more formal call of Andrew and Simon, James and John, comes later ( Mark 1:16 ; Matthew 4:18 ; Luke 3:1-11 ). That heard John speak (twn akousantwn para Iwanou). "That heard from John," a classical idiom (para with ablative after akouw) seen also in Luke 6:45 ; Luke 7:51 ; Luke 8:26 Luke 8:40 ; Luke 15:15 .
