This is the One I was talking about when I said, 'A man will come after me, but he is greater than I am, because he was living before me.'
Even I did not know who he was, although I came baptizing with water so that the people of Israel would know who he is."
Then John said, "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven in the form of a dove and rest on him. Until then I did not know who the Christ was. But the God who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'You will see the Spirit come down and rest on a man; he is the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
I have seen this happen, and I tell you the truth: This man is the Son of God."
The next day Johnn was there again with two of his followers.
When he saw Jesus walking by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"
The two followers heard John say this, so they followed Jesus.
When Jesus turned and saw them following him, he asked, "What are you looking for?" They said, "Rabbi, where are you staying?" ("Rabbi" means "Teacher.")
He answered, "Come and see." So the two men went with Jesus and saw where he was staying and stayed there with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon.
One of the two men who followed Jesus after they heard John speak about him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
