This is he of whom I said: After me there cometh a man, who is preferred before me: because he was before me.
And I knew him not: but that he may be made manifest in Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
And John gave testimony, saying: I saw the Spirit coming down, as a dove from heaven; and he remained upon him.
And I knew him not: but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me: He upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending and remaining upon him, he it is that baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
And I saw: and I gave testimony that this is the Son of God.
The next day again John stood and two of his disciples.
And beholding Jesus walking, he saith: Behold the Lamb of God.
And the two disciples heard him speak: and they followed Jesus.
And Jesus turning and seeing them following him, saith to them: What seek you? Who said to him: Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Master), where dwellest thou?
He saith to them: Come and see. They came and saw where he abode: and they stayed with him that day. Now it was about the tenth hour.
And Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who had heard of John and followed him.
