Wesley's Notes for John 1:49


1:49 Nathanael answered - Happy are they that are ready to believe, swift to receive the truth and grace of God. Thou art the Son of God - So he acknowledges now more than he had heard from Philip: The Son of God, the king of Israel - A confession both of the person and office of Christ.


People's Bible Notes for John 1:49


Joh 1:49 Thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. Philip had said, "Jesus, the son of Joseph" (Joh 1:45), as he supposed, but Nathanael, convinced, declared him the Son of God. This is the first confession of the divinity of Jesus.

Discussion for John 1

  • Jude Howell
    John, was the Apostle, that Jesus loved. He loved the others as well, but there was something special about John. In this Epistle, the difference in this Gospel and the other Gospels, are clear. Jesus has always been here. He was here during the beginning of the world. He has always been here, and will always be here, along with God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
  • Anton
    We filled with light. The light is came from Jesus. So Jesus is inside sin is out side.
  • MockingBird
    The Grace of God teaches us to deny ungodliness : The word of God is Truth : The law to my understanding : 5 are toward God and 5 are toward man : If I break one of those laws it is as though I have broken all in God's eyes : Not a one of us has kept the law : For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God : This is where Grace and Truth comes in . Jesus is our Passover Lamb !!!
  • Geri
    I love to read and learn from the Scriptires.
    If the people in Jesus' day, when He was among them, had received him as these first disciples accepted him, our world would be different today. The TRUTH will remain so no matter.how the enemy slices it.
