Transcript of Empower: Come and See
Empower Formation Day
Jesus found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow me.’ then Philip found Nathanael and said to him,
‘We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote,
Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.’
Nathanael said to him, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.’
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him,
‘Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’
Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you come to know me?’
Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree
before Philip called you.’
Nathanael replied, ‘Teacher, you are the Son of God!
You are the King of Israel!’
Jesus answered, ‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
You will see greater things than these.’
