The Greeks and Jesus


“Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee. With a request. ‘Sir,’ they said, ‘we would like to see Jesus.’ Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus. Jesus replied, ‘The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified’” (John 12: 20-23, NIV). How does this incident help us to understand the heartfelt cry of people everywhere for salivation, for hope, for answer that can be found only in Jesus?


These Greeks were probably converts to Judaism, since they were allowed to enter the temple are, at least as far as the court of the Gentiles. Commentators have noted that these Greeks went to Philip, who, though, Jewish, had a Greek name, which might have attracted them to him. Thus, while pioneering Christian work can be accomplished by foreign missionaries who have cultural sensitivity and a sympathetic understanding of the people they want to win for Christ, the most effective groundbreaking work is done by people with the same background as the target people.

The Greeks came only days before Jesus’ crucifixion. They no doubt were amazed by His words about His suffering, death, and final victory. (The voice from heaven face them something to think about, as well.). Jesus would have been encouraged by their desire to “see” Him. Their approach signaled the beginning of world evangelization. It was foreseen even by the Pharisees, who had exclaimed, “the world has gone after Him” (John 12:19, NKJV).

What we see here are men, outside of Judaism, wanting to come to Jesus. What a sign that the world was ready for His atoning death! These Greeks, representing the nations, tribes, and peoples of the world, were being drawn to Him. Soon the Savior’s cross would draw the people of all lands and in all subsequent times to Him (vs. 32). The disciples would find the world ready to receive the gospel.


Read John 12:20-32. What in Jesus saying about losing your life in order to keep it? Why would that in this immediate context? How have you experienced just what HE is talking about?
