John 4:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Messiah cometh. The woman uses the Jewish name, which was known in Samaria. The Samaritans also expected the Messiah, basing their hopes on such Scriptures as Genesis 3:15; Genesis 49:10; Numbers 24:17; Deuteronomy 18:15. They looked for Him to restore the kingdom of Israel and to re-establish the worship on Gerizim, where they supposed that the tabernacle was hidden. They called Him Hushab or Hathab, meaning the Converter, or, according to some, the Returning One. The Samaritan idea was less worldly and political than the Jewish.

Which is called Christ

Added by the Evangelist. Compare John 1:41.

He is come (ἐκεῖνος)

Emphatic; pointing to Messiah as contrasted with all other teachers.

He will tell (ἀναγγελεῖ)

Literally, proclaim or announce. The compounded preposition ἀνά, the radical meaning of which is up, signifies throughout, from bottom to top. The verb is used in John 16:13, of the revelations of the Comforter.
