Jesus' first disciples 1
The day after John baptised Jesus, he was standing there with two of his disciples. Gazing at Jesus as He walked by, he said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’
Jesus' first disciples 2
When John’s two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Jesus turned around and saw them following and said to them, ‘What do you want?’ So they said to Him, ‘Rabbi’ (which is translated Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’
Jesus' first disciples 3
Jesus answered, ‘Come and you will see.’ So they came and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. Now it was about four o’clock in the afternoon.

Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two disciples who heard what John said and followed Jesus. He first found his own brother Simon and told him, ‘We have found the Messiah!’ (which is translated ‘Christ’).
Jesus' first disciples 5
Andrew brought Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, ‘You are Simon, the son of John. You will be called Cephas’ (which is translated ‘Peter’).

On the next day Jesus wanted to set out for Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow me.’ (Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter.)

Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the one Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets also wrote about – Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’ Nathanael replied, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Philip replied, ‘Come and see.’
Jesus' first disciples 8
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and exclaimed, ‘Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ Nathanael asked Him, ‘How do you know me?’
Jesus' first disciples 9
Jesus replied, ‘Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.’ Nathanael answered Him, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel!’

Jesus said to him, ‘Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.’
Jesus' first disciples 11
He continued, ‘I tell all of you the solemn truth – you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.’
