Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, 1"What are you seeking?" And they said to him, 2"Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
He said to them, "Come and you will see." So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.a403One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesusb was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found 4the Messiah" (which means Christ).
He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "So you are Simon the son of 5John? You shall be called 6Cephas" (which means 7Peterc).
438The next day Jesus decided 9to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me."44
Now 10Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
Philip found 11Nathanael and said to him, "We have found him of whom 12Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus 13of Nazareth, 14the son of Joseph."
Nathanael said to him, 15"Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Behold, 16an Israelite indeed, 17in whom there is no deceit!"48
Nathanael said to him, "How 18do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
