Then Jesus turned round, and seeing them following He asked them, "What is your wish?" "Rabbi," they replied--`Rabbi' means `Teacher' --"where are you staying?"
"Come and you shall see," He said. So they went and saw where He was staying, and they remained and spent that day with Him. It was then about ten o'clock in the morning.
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard John's exclamation and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah!" --that is to say, the Anointed One.
He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon, son of John: you shall be called Cephas" --that is to say, Peter (or `Rock').
The next day, having decided to leave Bethany and go into Galilee, Jesus found Philip, and invited him to follow Him.
(Now Philip came from Bethsaida, the same town as Andrew and Peter.)
Then Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found him about whom Moses in the Law wrote, as well as the Prophets--Jesus, the son of Joseph, a man of Nazareth."
"Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" replied Nathanael. "Come and see," said Philip.
Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, and said of him, "Look! here is a true Israelite, in whom there is no deceitfulness!"
"How do you know me?" Nathanael asked. "Before Philip called you," said Jesus, "when you were under the fig-tree I saw you."
