The next day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee. He found Philip and told him, "Follow me!"
(Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter.)
Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the man whom Moses wrote about in his teachings and whom the prophets wrote about. He is Jesus, son of Joseph, from the city of Nazareth."
Nathanael said to Philip, "Can anything good come from Nazareth?" Philip told him, "Come and see!"
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and remarked, "Here is a true Israelite who is sincere."
Nathanael asked Jesus, "How do you know anything about me?" Jesus answered him, "I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you."
Nathanael said to Jesus, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the king of Israel!"
Jesus replied, "You believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that."
Jesus said to Nathanael, "I can guarantee this truth: You will see the sky open and God's angels going up and coming down to the Son of Man."
