38 And Jesus, turning around and seeing them following [him],a said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means [when]b 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).

Andrew Declares Jesus to be the Messiah

40 Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed him. 41 This one first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which is translated "Christ"). 42 He brought him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, "You are Simon the son of John. You will be called Cephas" (which is interpreted "Peter").

Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael

43 On the next day he wanted to depart for Galilee, and he found Philip. And Jesus said to him, "Follow me!" 44 (Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter.) 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found [the one] whom Moses wrote [about] in the law, and the prophets wrote [about]--Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth!" 46 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see!" 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said about him, "Look! {A true Israelite}c in whom is no deceit!" 48 Nathanael said to him, "From where do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, [when you]d were under the fig tree, I saw you."
