Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
Many people still say that the «Jews» did not accept Jesus as the Messiah. That is not correct. Many Jews recognized him, among them a man called Philip. He used the scripture as the source of identification. Both Moses and the prophets wrote about Him. A man who would reign as King forever, coming from the bloodline of David, from the tribe of Judah.
