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.
He findeth first his brother Simon and saith to him: We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon the son of Jona. Thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted Peter.
On the following day, he would go forth into Galilee: and he findeth Philip, And Jesus saith to him: follow me.
Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
Philip findeth Nathanael and saith to him: We have found him of whom Moses, in the law and the prophets did write, Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth.
And Nathanael said to him: Can any thing of good come from Nazareth? Philip saith to him: Come and see.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and he saith of him: Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.
