When Jesus turned and noticed them following Him, He asked them, "What are you looking for?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which means "Teacher"), "where are You staying?"
"Come and you'll see," He replied. So they went and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. It was about 10 in the morning.a40
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed Him.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah!"b (which means "Anointed One"),
and he brought [Simon] to Jesus. When Jesus saw him, He said, "You are Simon, son of John. c You will be called Cephas" (which means "Rock").
The next day Hed decided to leave for Galilee. Jesus found Philip and told him, "Follow Me!"
Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter.
Philip found Nathanaele and told him, "We have found the One Moses wrote about in the Law (and so did the prophets): Jesus the son of Joseph, from Nazareth!"
"Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Nathanael asked him. "Come and see," Philip answered.
Then Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and said about him, "Here is a true Israelite; no deceit is in him."
"How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you," Jesus answered.
