“Come and See”

Tall claims!

In the first chapter of John’s Gospel are more names and titles for Jesus than perhaps anywhere else in the Bible.

He is the Word, God, Light, Lord, Lamb of God, Jesus of Nazareth, Messiah, Rabbi, King of Israel, Son of God, Son of Man.

He created all things, was made flesh, and He takes away the sin of the world.

Toward the end of the chapter, Philip tells Nathanael about Jesus of Nazareth. Nathanael finds it incredible that anything good could come from Nazareth!

“Come and see,” says Philip.

Sufficient evidence?

When he did, skeptical Nathanael becomes believing Nathanael: “Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel” (vv. 45-49).

Does the evidence John presents in his Gospel warrant faith?

Read and see (John 20:24-31).
