The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
This is He of whom I said, A man is coming after me who has become ahead of me, because He was before me.
And I did not know Him, but in order that He might be manifested to Israel, for this reason I came baptizing in water.
And John testified, saying, I beheld the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He abode upon Him.
And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water, He said to me, He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and abiding upon Him, this is He who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.
And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God.
Again the next day John was standing with two of his disciples,
And looking at Jesus walking, he said, Behold, the Lamb of God!
And the two disciples heard him speak this, and they followed Jesus.
And Jesus, turning and beholding them following, said to them, What are you seeking? And they said to Him, Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are You staying?
He said to them, Come, and you will see. They went therefore and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day; it was about the tenth hour.
One of the two who heard this from John and followed Him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, We have found the Messiah (which translated means Christ).
He led him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, You are Simon, the son of John; you shall be called Cephas (which is interpreted, Peter).
