    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:1

    ¶ Despus de estas cosas, había una fiesta de los judíos, y subi Jess a Jerusaln.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 5:1

    Verse 1. A
    feast] This is generally supposed, by the best critics, to have been the feast of the passover, which was the most eminent feast among the Jews. In several excellent MSS. the article is added, h eorth, THE feast, the grand, the principal festival. Petavius supposes that the feast of Purim, or lots, is here meant; and one MS. reads h skhnophgia, the feast of Tabernacles. Several of the primitive fathers believe Pentecost to be intended; and they are followed by many of the moderns, because, in chap. vii. 2, mention is made of the feast of Tabernacles, which followed Pentecost, and was about the latter end of our September; and, in chap. x. 22, mention is made of the feast of Dedication, which was held about the latter end of November. See Bp. Pearce. See chap. x. 22.

    Calmet, however, argues that there is no other feast with which all the circumstances marked here so well agree as with the passover; and Bp.

    Newcome, who is of Calmet's opinion, thinks Bp. Pearce's argument concerning the succession of the feasts to be inconclusive; because it is assumed, not proved, that the three feasts which he mentions above must have happened in the same year. See much on the same subject in Bp.

    Newcome's notes to his Harmony, p. 15, &c.

    Lightfoot has observed, that the other evangelists speak very sparingly of our Lord's acts in Judea. They mention nothing of the passovers, from our Lord's baptism till his death, excepting the very last: but John points at them all. The first he speaks of, chap. ii. 13; the third, chap. vi. 4; the fourth, chap. xiii. 1; and the second in this place: for although he does not call it the passover, but a feast in general, yet the circumstances agree best with this feast; and our Lord's words, chap. iv. 35, seem to cast light on this subject. See the note there.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. After this there was a feast of the Jews , etc.] After Christ had been in Samaria, which was four months ago, ( John 4:35), and had been in Galilee for that time, and had cured the noblemans son, and had done other mighty works, the time came on for one of the three festivals of the Jews; either the feast of Pentecost, as some think; or as others, the feast of tabernacles; or rather, the feast of the passover, so called, in ( John 4:45) since John is very particular, in giving an account of the several passovers, in Christs ministry: and Jesus went up to Jerusalem ; according to the law of God, which obliged all the males to appear there at that time; and to show his compliance with it, and obedience to it, whom it became to fulfil all righteousness; and this he did also, that he might have an opportunity of discoursing, and doing his miracles before all the people, which came at this time, from the several parts of the land.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - We are all by
    nature impotent folk in spiritual things, blind, halt and withered; but full provision is made for our cure, if we attend to it. An angel went down, and troubled the water; and what disease soeve it was, this water cured it, but only he that first stepped in ha benefit. This teaches us to be careful, that we let not a season sli which may never return. The man had lost the use of his limb thirty-eight years. Shall we, who perhaps for many years have scarcel known what it has been to be a day sick, complain of one wearisom night, when many others, better than we, have scarcely known what it has been to be a day well? Christ singled this one out from the rest Those long in affliction, may comfort themselves that God keeps accoun how long. Observe, this man speaks of the unkindness of those abou him, without any peevish reflections. As we should be thankful, so we should be patient. Our Lord Jesus cures him, though he neither aske nor thought of it. Arise, and walk. God's command, Turn and live; Make ye a new heart; no more supposes power in us without the grace of God his distinguishing grace, than this command supposed such power in the impotent man: it was by the power of Christ, and he must have all the glory. What a joyful surprise to the poor cripple, to find himself of sudden so easy, so strong, so able to help himself! The proof of spiritual cure, is our rising and walking. Has Christ healed ou spiritual diseases, let us go wherever he sends us, and take u whatever he lays upon us; and walk before him.
