John 1:35-51

ESV 35 The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, MSG 35 The next day John was back at his post with two disciples, who were watching. ESV 36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" MSG 36 He looked up, saw Jesus walking nearby, and said, "Here he is, God's Passover Lamb." ESV 37 The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. MSG 37 The two disciples heard him and went after Jesus. ESV 38 Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, "What are you seeking?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?" MSG 38 Jesus looked over his shoulder and said to them, "What are you after?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means "Teacher"), "where are you staying?" ESV 39 He said to them, "Come and you will see." So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. MSG 39 He replied, "Come along and see for yourself." They came, saw where he was living, and ended up staying with him for the day. It was late afternoon when this happened. ESV 40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. MSG 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard John's witness and followed Jesus. ESV 41 He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ). MSG 41 The first thing he did after finding where Jesus lived was find his own brother, Simon, telling him, "We've found the Messiah" (that is, "Christ"). ESV 42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas" (which means Peter). MSG 42 He immediately led him to Jesus. Jesus took one look up and said, "You're John's son, Simon? From now on your name is Cephas" (or Peter, which means "Rock"). ESV 43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." MSG 43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. When he got there, he ran across Philip and said, "Come, follow me." ESV 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. MSG 44 (Philip's hometown was Bethsaida, the same as Andrew and Peter.) ESV 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." MSG 45 Philip went and found Nathanael and told him, "We've found the One Moses wrote of in the Law, the One preached by the prophets. It's Jesus, Joseph's son, the one from Nazareth!" ESV 46 Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." MSG 46 Nathanael said, "Nazareth? You've got to be kidding." But Philip said, "Come, see for yourself." ESV 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!" MSG 47 When Jesus saw him coming he said, "There's a real Israelite, not a false bone in his body." ESV 48 Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." MSG 48 Nathanael said, "Where did you get that idea? You don't know me." Jesus answered, "One day, long before Philip called you here, I saw you under the fig tree." ESV 49 Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" MSG 49 Nathanael exclaimed, "Rabbi! You are the Son of God, the King of Israel!" ESV 50 Jesus answered him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these." MSG 50 Jesus said, "You've become a believer simply because I say I saw you one day sitting under the fig tree? You haven't seen anything yet! ESV 51 And he said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man." MSG 51 Before this is over you're going to see heaven open and God's angels descending to the Son of Man and ascending again."
