This is the one I was talking about when I said, "A man is coming after me, but he is greater than I am, because he existed before I was born.'
I did not know who he would be, but I came baptizing with water in order to make him known to the people of Israel."
And John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven and stay on him.
I still did not know that he was the one, but God, who sent me to baptize with water, had said to me, "You will see the Spirit come down and stay on a man; he is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'
I have seen it," said John, "and I tell you that he is the Son of God."
The next day John was standing there again with two of his disciples,
when he saw Jesus walking by. "There is the Lamb of God!" he said.
The two disciples heard him say this and went with Jesus.
Jesus turned, saw them following him, and asked, "What are you looking for?" They answered, "Where do you live, Rabbi?" (This word means "Teacher.")
"Come and see," he answered. (It was then about four o'clock in the afternoon.) So they went with him and saw where he lived, and spent the rest of that day with him.
One of them was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
