When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, â€˜Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!â€™ Nathanael asked him, â€˜Where did you come to know me?â€™ Jesus answered, â€˜I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.â€™ Nathanael replied, â€˜Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!â€™ Jesus answered, â€˜Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.â€™ And he said to him, â€˜Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.â€™
