THE APPROACH OF PETER
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He came unto His own, and His own did not receive him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God. No one has ever seen God: the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, and He has revealed God to us. (Gospel John. 1) At Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing, the two disciples followed Jesus went and saw where he lived and that day they stayed with him. It was about four in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his own brother Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah (which means Christ)" He brought him to Jesus. The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 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.”." Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Bethsaida, where the Jordan enters the Sea of Galilee, was the home of Philip, Andrew and Peter (John 1.44) and probably also of James and John.
