Are you a Nathaniel?????
Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
“Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked.
“Come and see,” said Philip (John 1:44-46, NIV).
Nathaniel wrote off Jesus as the Messiah before he even met Him because of where He was from. “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” As if to say,
- If anyone here has met anyone from Nazareth who was a good person please raise your hand. No one? Thought so, I haven’t either!
- Is there any prophecy about the Messiah coming from Nazareth? Nope! Not one!
- Is Nazareth mentioned in any prophecy? Nope. In fact, Phil, it is never mentioned at all.
- Have you been through Nazareth, Phil? Why would God want…
