One of the two which heard John [speak]
The above things, concerning Jesus being the Lamb of God:
and followed him;
that is, Jesus, as the Syriac and Arabic versions read; and the Persic version, Christ: and the Ethiopic version, "the Lord Jesus"; for not John, but Jesus they followed:
was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother:
see ( Matthew 4:18 ) the other, as before observed, might be the writer of this Gospel.
