1:36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"
1:37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.
1:38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
1:39 "Come," he replied, "and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.
1:40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus.
1:41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ).
1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which, when translated, is Peter ).
1:43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, "Follow me."
1:44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.
1:45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
1:46 "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?" Nathanael asked. "Come and see," said Philip.
1:47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, "Here is a true Israelite, in whom there is nothing false."
1:48 "How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you."
1:49 Then Nathanael declared, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
1:50 Jesus said, "You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that."
