Bible: John 1:45-51

1:45 Philip found Nathanael 1  and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets also 2  wrote about – Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 1:46 Nathanael 3  replied, 4 Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” 5  Philip replied, 6 Come and see.”

1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and exclaimed, 7 Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit! 8  1:48 Nathanael asked him, “How do you know me?” Jesus replied, 9 Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, 10  I saw you.” 1:49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king 11  of Israel! 12  1:50 Jesus said to him, 13 Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 14  1:51 He continued, 15 I tell all of you the solemn truth 16 you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” 17
