1 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
2 And looking upon Joshua as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
3 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Joshua.
4 Then Joshua turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them,
What seek ye?They said
unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest
5 He saith unto them, Come and see.
They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about
the tenth hour.
6 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon
7 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the
Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
8 And he brought him to Joshua. And when Joshua beheld him, he said,
Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas,which is by interpretation, A stone.
9 The day following Joshua would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and
saith unto him, Follow me.
10 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
11 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom
Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Joshua of Nazareth, the son of
12 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of
Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
13 Joshua saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him,
Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
14 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Joshua answered and said unto him,
Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
15 Nathanael answered and saith unto him,
Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
16 Joshua answered and said unto him, Son Because
I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see
greater things than these.
17 And he saith unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see
heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man.
