This last week we looked at Jesus calling His first disciples as reported in the Gospel of John. First were two brothers, Andrew and Simon (later Jesus renamed him to Peter). The first morning, as they were getting ready to leave the area, Philip comes up to them, and Jesus invites him to follow, as well.
Before they actually get underway, Philip tells his friend, Nathanael, about Jesus. Nathanael wasn't as easily impressed, and his comment to Phillip betrays his prejudice: "Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?"
Soon, he meets Jesus, and learns that Something Good Can Come From Nazareth. What can we learn from his prejudice against that place, or a prejudice against people? We'll look at what scripture has to say about our prejudice, and why we need to seek God's help in ending this behavior.
