John 1:44

From Bethsaida (apo Bhqsaida). Same expression in John 12:21 with the added words "of Galilee," which locates it in Galilee, not in Iturea. There were two Bethsaidas, one called Bethsaida Julias in Iturea (that in Luke 9:10 ) or the Eastern Bethsaida, the other the Western Bethsaida in Galilee ( Mark 6:45 ), perhaps somewhere near Capernaum. This is the town of Andrew and Peter and Philip. Hence Philip would be inclined to follow the example of his townsmen.
