Nathan has one of the best, snarky quotes in the whole Bible: “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?”

Just like Andrew brought Peter to Jesus, Philip introduced Nathan to Christ.

Jesus quickly melts away Nathan’s skepticism with a description of his time under the fig tree.

It may be the one time we find Jesus surprised that someone believes in him so easily.
