John 12:20-22 King James Version (KJV)
20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.


John 12:20-22 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Predicts His Death
20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

20 At this time many Greeks had converted to the Jewish and they would worship in a certain part of the temple was for the temple was for the Gentiles. This would have been a time many would have been there it was the time of Passover a celebration that all Jews were to keep.

21 Philip was one of Jesus’ first disciples one of the men that went to the wedding with Him, where He turned water to wine. People today may come to us asking us about Jesus as His followers we need to be prepared to bring them to Him. We first need to know Jesus to know where He is though many may not be able to direct people to Jesus because they themselves do not know Him.

22 Philip went to a brother Andrew another follower of Jesus and a friend of Philip, we sometimes may have look to our brothers, those of the Faith to help us bring people to Jesus, when we need to do this, we should and not try to tell them what we can not when we can ask for help.
