Which person’s encounter with Jesus impresses the most? I would have to included Peter just as Ron has for the same reasons. But one that impresses me, small and oft overlooked is the disciple Nathanael. What impresses me about Nathanael is his recognition of who Jesus really was as soon as he saw him. Jn 1:49 “Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”‘ Martha’s recognition also impresses me. Jn 11:27 “She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”‘ They recognized who Jesus was. How?
