Apostle Nathanael Bartholomew and His Fig Tree video. What’s Nathanael’s question? How do you know me? Jesus knew him because of the fig tree. Have you seen a fig tree? Have you ever attempted to get under a fig tree? It’s not like sitting under a pine tree. I mean, you have to work to get under a fig tree. Apostle Nathanael had a secret place, a hiding place, caved out under a fig tree where only he and God knew about. It was his secret place and his hiding place. It was where he sought God and meditated hoping in God’s Word.

John 1:45 PHILIP FOUND NATHANAEL and told him, “WE HAVE FOUND THE ONE MOSES WROTE ABOUT IN THE LAW, AND ABOUT WHOM THE PROPHETS ALSO WROTE — Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
Philip was Nathanael’s good friend and brought him to Jesus. Do your good friends take you to Jesus, or away from Jesus? That’s not a question just for only students. Parent’s, that’s a question for you.
The emphasis here is Apostle Nathanael knew his Bible – scriptures. The only people we should approach with scriptures are people who know the scriptures. Philip said, “Oh man! We’ve found him! I couldn’t wait to tell you… (continue sermon notes)
