Come and see

Gospel text (John 1,43-51): After Jesus had decided to set off for Galilee, He met Philip and said to him, Follow me. Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, We have found the one that Moses wrote about in the Law, and the prophets as well: he is Jesus, son of Joseph, from Nazareth. Nathanael replied, Can anything good come from Nazareth?. Philip said to him, Come and see.
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming, he said of him, Here comes an Israelite, a true one; there is nothing false in him. Nathanael asked him, How do you know me?. And Jesus said to him, Before Philip called you, you were under the fig tree and I saw you. Nathanael answered, Master, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!. But Jesus replied, You believe because I said: ?I saw you under the fig tree?. But you will see greater things than that. Truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.
