Psalms: 48, 60

Meditation

John: Philip makes a strange announcement to Nathanael. First Philip tells him that he found the Messiah – the one Moses said to be on the lookout for (BOLO) (Deut. 18:15-19), Jesus of Nazareth “Nazareth?!” I can almost hear Nathanael exclaim. Next Jesus is introduced to him, also strangely: “Here is a true Israelite in whom there is nothing false.” (v. 47) Nathanael responds as one might expect Peter to respond with over-the-top enthusiasm: “You are the Son of God: You are the King of Israel.” (v. 49) A quick-change artist.

Gospel: John 1:43-51

New Testament: Acts 4:1-12

Old Testament: Judges 8:22-35
