John 1:35-42

John’s Disciples Follow Jesus
35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.

Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter[a]).”
These verses declare that John the Prophet witnessed that Christ Jesus is the promised coming Son of God hence the Holy Spirit abide in His Heart as a part of the Heavenly Kingdom ergo John the Apostle emphasizes the divine nature of Christ Jesus then His nature is so pure that He is the “Lamb of God” who is obedient to His Will which is to bear the heavy cross with Him to be the living testimony of the Resurrection and the Eternal Life which allow Him to herald the Kingdom of Heaven.
Therefore these verses are particularly affirmative of the divine character of Christ Jesus who is recognised as the Son of God without any annunciation, i.e. He himself bears His recognisable divine nature in spirit and body without needing to declare it thence He was persecuted and crucified due to His divine nature rejected by terrestrial slaves of the devil.
Accordingly the reaction of John the Prophet and His disciples is instructive in knowing how to respond to Christ Jesus’ Voice coming from Heaven to be the Testimony about the Kingdom of Heaven hence the primary meaning of John the Prophet’ prophecy involves the coming of the Son of God from the Heaven to baptise His Apostles with the Holy Spirit which necessitate a sincere turning to God which may indeed make a Human thirsting for an inner encounter with his divine nature allowing him not to recognise Christ Jesus, who is recognisable by nature, but to find a purity buried in his heart allowing him to repent of his sins so that the Holy Spirit may take over the material body thus driving out all weakness of the flesh.
On account of this, the anointing of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit for the Kingdom of Heaven is demonstrated by the term “Rabbi” (which means Teacher) according to His wise Teachings which reveal the Light of Truth that effectively chases away the darkness of the buffetings of the evil which spread foolishness idiocy and terrorism whence bowing to such false doctrines which legitimate the crime means the wretched end and the enslavement of the evil’s adepts.
Thus Christ Jesus’ Teachings are intended for His Apostles who are predestined by God the Father to meet Him as an Apostle s heart that espouses his pre-existing pure nature to be with Christ Jesus in a solemn prayer, however and on the contrary His teachings condemn the immorality and denounce hypocrisy dishonesty and robbery which have its origins in the horrible moral disease of selfishness the trouble source of inhumanity illustrated by the fallen world when the world joined its deceitful and animal nature by rejecting God s Instructions to be seduced by the serpent cursed from the beginning.
Therefore and in order to reach the stated objectives namely the instruction of the chosen Apostles from the beginning to be the heirs of the Heavenly Kingdom, Christ Jesus redefined the filiation in a clear sense and far from the premeditated ambiguities of sectarian doctrines
given that the filiation established by Him is hardly by blood! but by predestination from the beginning to have pure hearts from which
“8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.”
Thus His Apostles can wield the Power of His Word to face and defeat the most relentless army that ever walked this fallen land therefore---;--- it was only natural that the Apostles of Christ Jesus were taught first by John the Prophet, who cleansed sincere hearts of sin so that they would be fit to receive God.
