The Lamb of God!" 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus, turning around and seeing them following [him],d said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means [when]e translated "Teacher"), "where are you staying?" 39 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 (it was about the tenth hour).
