The next day He 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 Nathanael 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.
"Rabbi," Nathanael replied, "You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
Jesus responded to him, "Do you believe [only] because I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this."
Then He said, "I assure you: You will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
