Joh 1:45-49; 21:2
Nathanael in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(gift of God), a disciple of Jesus Christ, concerning whom,
under that name at least, we learn from Scripture little more
than his birthplace, Cana of Galilee, Joh 21:2 and his simple,
truthful character. Joh 1:47 The name does not occur in the
first three Gospels; but it is commonly believed that
Nathanael and Bartholomew are the same person. The evidence
for that belief is as follows: St, John who twice mentions
Nathanael, never introduces the name of Bartholomew at all.
St. Matthew, Mt 10:3 St. Mark, Mr 3:18 and St. Luke, Lu 8:14
all speak of Bartholomew but never of Nathanael. If was Philip
who first brought Nathanael to Jesus, just as Andrew had
brought his brother Simon.
