A Casual Paraphrase of John 1:43-51

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you,you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

Philip: “Nathanael! Nathanael! We found the one who is coming to save the world! It’s this guy Jesus from Nazareth!”
Nathanael: “Seriously, Philip? Nazareth? You found the saviour of the world in Nazareth?”
Philip: “Dude, just come see him.”
*they walk*
Jesus: “Oh heeeeey! Here comes a straight shooter! Here’s a guy who knows what’s up!”
Nathanael: “Excuse me?”
Jesus: “Oh, nothing. I just heard you talking shit about me under the fig tree.”
Nathanel: “Ohmygod! Uh… No really. Oh, my God!”
Jesus: “Wait, seriously? Dude, that was…. That was nothing.”
