John 12:20 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

CERTAIN GREEKS WOULD SEE JESUS, v. 20-22

1 ) "And there were certain Greeks," (esan de hellenes tines) "Then there were certain Greeks," men of pure Greek extraction or race, not Jews speaking Greek, as in Mar 7:26.

2) "Among them that came up," (ek ton anabainonton) "Out of those who had come up," as proselytes perhaps from Galilee, Syrophenicia, Decapolis, and perhaps some countries ever farther away. The term "came up" simply refers to the physical heights of the altitude of Jerusalem.

3) "To worship at the feast:” (hina proskunesosin en te heorte) "In order that they might worship at the feast," Psa 72:9-11; Act 10:34-35.
