Greek - Nathanael
Nathanael -

("God given".) Hebrew Nethaneel. Of Cana in Galilee (John 1:47; John 21:2). Three or four days after the temptation, Jesus when intending to "go forth into Galilee findeth Philip and saith, Follow Me." Philip, like Andrew finding his own brother Simon (John 1:41), and the woman of Samaria (John 4:28-29) inviting her fellow townsmen, having been found himself by Jesus, "findeth" his friend Nathanael, and saith, "we have found (he should have said, we have been found by: Isaiah 65:1; Philemon 3:12 ff, Song of Solomon 1:4) Him of whom the prophets did write, Jesus of Nazareth the son of Joseph" (he should have said the Son of God). (For the rest, see BARTHOLOMEW.) Tradition makes Nathanael to have been the bridegroom at the marriage of Cana, to which he belonged.
