John 1:48 | NIV | Other Versions | Context

Brief

Nathanael was probably one of the lower profile disciples in the Bible, commonly associated with Bartholomew. But whether he is Bartholomew or not, it is perhaps not as important as our character study on Nathanael today will focus on his episode with Jesus as charted in John 1. John tells us about the story of Jesus calling Philip and Nathanael, with the first interactions between the two being curiously interesting. Firstly, Nathanael, upon hearing that Jesus was a Nazarite, questioned the identity of Jesus, and to that Jesus simply remarked that he was a true Israelite. In this study, we will examine the next round of dialogue between them, and the depth of what remains unsaid between them and how what we can learn from both Nathanael and Jesus.
