View Wesley's Notes for John 1:46
1:46 Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? - How cautiously should we guard against popular prejudices? When these had once possessed so honest a heart as that of Nathanael, they led him to suspect the blessed Jesus himself for an impostor, because he had been brought up at Nazareth. But his integrity prevailed over that foolish bias, and laid him open to the force of evidence, which a candid inquirer will always be glad to admit, even when it brings the most unexpected discoveries. Can any good thing - That is, have we ground from Scripture to expect the Messiah, or any eminent prophet from Nazareth? Philip saith, Come and see - The same answer which he had received himself from our Lord the day before.

Joh 1:46 Come and see. That is the best answer to the skeptic. Bring him to Christ, let him consider him, and what he has done for mankind. The strongest proof that Jesus is the Christ is Jesus himself.

I really felt good with the answer Nathanael got and also my greatest happiness is when Jesus asks Nathanael if he believe because Jesus said to him he saw him under the fig tree? And Jesus also promising us that today we have seeing him and we shall continue to see greater things in our life, what a wonderful savior. Thank you Jesus. We love you.

I like it cuz it satirizes The Jesus or The Christ. Once I was believer but after seeing the actions of especially some church leaders the religion of The Bible is something I no longer want to identify with. I revel when I see church leaders fall. It's karma in action. Slaves, soldiers and good Christians ask no questions.
