The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He met Philip, who like Andrew and Peter, came from Bethsaida, and said to him, "Follow me."
Phillip went to find Nathanael, and told him, we have met the man spoken of my Moses in the Law, and by the prophets; it is Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.
"Nazareth!" Nathanael exclaimed. "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"
Philip said, "Come and see."
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming, he said, "Here is an Israelite worthy of the name; there is nothing false in him."
Nathanael asked him, "How do you come to know me?"
Jesus replied, "I saw you under the fig tree, before Philip spoke to you."
"Rabbi," said Nathanael, "You are the son of God; you are king of Israel."
Jesus answered, "Is this the ground of your faith, that I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You shall see greater things than that." The he added, "In truth, in very truth I tell you all: You shall see Heaven wide open, and God's angels ascending and descending upon the son of Adam."
