Come and See
“Nathanael said to him, ‘Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and see.'”
The 5th of Christ’s 12 apostles, a man named Philip, has just told his Nathanael that they’ve found the Messiah, the Lamb of God that would take away the sins of the world.
They both knew the prophecies recorded in scripture. They knew the Christ would be born in Nazareth, causing Nathanael to jokingly ask if any good thing can come out of Nazareth.
We don’t know what Philip’s conversations and experiences with Jesus were like up to this point, but his answer gives no defense of his new Rabbi. He plainly replies, “Come and see.”
Philip is confident in his challenge because without knowing the details or specifics, he knows that meeting Christ will make a lasting impact on Nathanael’s life.
In the same way, we invite you to come and see Christ’s home and experience aspects of His life here in Israel.
It’s impossible to describe what you will miss if you never experience the Holy Land for yourself.
