Come and See. John 1:43-51 Spoken by Philip in response to Nathanael’s skepticism concerning Jesus’ residential status. Nazareth, a small remote town in Galilee barely registers with any significance. If not for the archeological evidence of its existence in the first century, some would still be skeptical. We put a lot of emphasis on where people come from (among other things). We assume positive things if a person is from a “wealthy” zip code and assume the worst from “impoverished” zip codes. We forget that what we see on the outside has nothing to do with what God has placed on the inside. Christ himself is evidence. By judging others, perhaps we judge what God may have allowed in order that one may experience His glory. Don’t let location fool you! Get to know God for yourself. Come and See.
I do want to visit Nazareth some day! That’d be neat! And yes praise God that he is with us inside and we don’t have to travel that far, but either way, it’d be nice!
I’ve been to Israel but didn’t get an opportunity to visit Nazareth. So I’d like to go one day as well. Peace and God Bless
