#GospelToday (Jn 1:49-51):
Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.
And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see the sky opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
@George I never understood that whole exchange - what's up with the fig tree?
@mikel @George If I can be of help. I looked this up to see if I can find something like what I heard either on EWTN or a local Mass (I forget) this is what I found and it is close: http://www.themichigancatholic.org/2017/01/nathaniels-calling-theres-meets-eye/
Yup! That's why sola scriptura leads to relativism manifested as thousands of Protestant communities (and within them). Apparently Our Lord knew what he was doing when he structured His Church!
A good friend of mine debate whether it is good to just tell people to pickup the Bible and read it. He thinks yes, I think they should be encouraged to join good Catholic Bible studies.
On a related note, only Catholics with a solid knowledge of Holy Scripture should ever attend a non-Catholic Bible study. For others it is counter-productive (I have seen the results personally).
