C—Come and See!

Journey through the Gospel of John from A to Z with rookie bloggers who are seeking to honor their good friend, Tina.

John the Baptist wasn't interested in amassing his own following or seeking his own fame.  He knew his role to be one of the supporting cast. He drew the attention of two of his disciples to Jesus, encouraging them to follow him.

Come and See photo Visual_Bible_Gospel_of_Matthew_The_Call_last_scene2_zpsjndwekcw.gifWhen [John the Baptist] saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"  When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.  Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"  "Come," he replied, "and you will see." 
So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. (1:36-39)

Jesus is delighted to have us come with our questions.  You can sense his eagerness for relationship in his invitation to these two seekers.

This is the first of three invitations that Jesus issues in the gospel of John.  He bids us come to spend time discovering more about Him.  To stay awhile and see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.

Have you spent time exploring the person of Christ?  It may be the beginning of an adventure!


  1. I can testify that knowing Jesus is indeed an adventure. Praise to our wonderful Lord.
