When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, "Here is a true Israelite,1 in whom there is nothing false."2
"How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, "I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you."
Then Nathanael declared, "Rabbi,3 you are the Son of God;4 you are the King of Israel."5
Jesus said, "You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that."
