A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John
[Jesus said to them . . . ]
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and said of him, "Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him."
48 Nathanael said to Him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
49 Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
50 Jesus answered and said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this."
51 And He said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see the sky opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
