DG BookGospel: Jn 1:47-51
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming, he said of him, “Here comes an Israelite, a true
one; there is nothing false in him.” Nathanael asked him, “How do you know me?” And
Jesus said to him, “Before Philip called you, you were under the fig tree and I saw you.”


Nathanael answered, “Master, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” But
Jesus replied, “You believe because I said: ‘I saw you under the fig tree.’ But you will see
greater things than that. Truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God
ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.

 

Reflection:

“How do you know me?” This is
Nathanael’s surprised question to Jesus. I guess
at some point in our life, we also ask the Lord the
same question. And so, how does God know us?
This is not surprising at all. God knows our deepest
aspirations and desires. After all, He authored our
human nature. No one is more intimate with it
than the creator Himself. And so, Jesus knows that
Nathanael seeks wisdom and understanding. He,
as a true student of the scriptures, is praying for
the coming day of the Messiah. That is why
Jesus surprised him even more by addressing this
specific desire. He says to Nathanael that he
will see the coming of the Son of Man, another
way of saying messiah, accompanied by heavenly
signs and wonder.
