25And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptize you then, if you are not that Christ, nor Elijah, neither that prophet?
26John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there stands one among you, whom you know not;
27He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's thong I am not worthy to unloose.
28These things were done in Bethany beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29The next day John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
30This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man who is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32And John bore record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me,
Upon whom you shall see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.
34And I saw, and bore record that this is the Son of God.
35Again the next day John stood, and two of his disciples;
36And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God!
37And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
38Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said unto them,
What seek you?
They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher,) where do you dwell?
39He said 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.
40One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41He first found his own brother Simon, and said unto him, We have found the Messiah, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
42And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said,
You are Simon the son of Jonah: you shall be called Cephas
, which is by interpretation, A stone.
43The day following Jesus went forth into Galilee, and found Philip, and said unto him,
44Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45Philip found Nathanael, and said unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said unto him, Come and see.
47Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him,
Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
48Nathanael said unto him, Where do you know me? Jesus answered and said unto him,
Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.
49Nathanael answered and said unto him, Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.
50Jesus answered and said unto him,
Because I said unto you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.
51And he said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter you shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
