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}a 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]b were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the king of Israel!" 50 Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater [things] than these!" 51 And he said to him, "Truly, truly I say to all of you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."
