The divinity and incarnation of Christ. John bears witness of him. He begins to call his disciples.
 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
 And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
 And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted Peter.
 On the following day, he would go forth into Galilee, and he findeth Philip. And Jesus saith to him: Follow me.
 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith to him: We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets did write, Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth.
 And Nathanael said to him: Can any thing of good come from Nazareth? Philip saith to him: Come and see.
 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him: and he saith of him: Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.
 Nathanael saith to him: Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered, and said to him: Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
 Nathanael answered him, and said: Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the King of Israel.
 Jesus answered, and said to him: Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, thou believest: greater things than these shalt thou see.
 And he saith to him: Amen, amen I say to you, you shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
