John 1:45-46

Context
1:45 Philip found Nathanael 1  and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets also 2  wrote about – Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 1:46 Nathanael 3  replied, 4  “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” 5  Philip replied, 6  “Come and see.”

1 sn Nathanael is traditionally identified with Bartholomew (although John never describes him as such). He appears here after Philip, while in all lists of the twelve except in Acts 1:13, Bartholomew follows Philip. Also, the Aramaic Bar-tolmai means “son of Tolmai,” the surname; the man almost certainly had another name.

2 tn “Also” is not in the Greek text, but is implied.

3 tn Grk “And Nathanael.”

4 tn Grk “said to him.”

5 sn Can anything good come out of Nazareth? may be a local proverb expressing jealousy among the towns.

6 tn Grk “And Philip said to him.”
