Central Idea: Jesus is the gate to heave, the mediator between God and man. Vss. 43-44 - This story has some parallels with the previous. Just as Andrew followed Jesus and subsequently called Peter, Jesus finds another follower, Philip, who later calls Nathanael. Philip, who possibly talked with Andrew and Peter, believes Jesus is the Messiah. Vss. 45-46 - Philip calls Nathanael, who doesn't believe but goes to see Jesus anyway. Vss. 47-51 - Like Peter, Nathanael has an unexpected dialogue with Jesus. Nathanael responds to Jesus' omniscience, but Jesus then says something even more startling. This passage (and the chapter) climaxes with a stunning reference to Jacob's ladder upon which angels were ascending and descending (Gen. 28:12). "In this application of Jacob's vision, however, the union between earth and heaven is effected by the Son of Man: he is the mediator between God and the human race." (F. F. Bruce)
