St Bartholomew, called Nathaniel, Christ saw, "under the fig tree." What does this mean? It is a Hebrew expression for someone who truly desired the coming of the Messiah, so the Savior in so describing him looked into his inmost heart, or "read his soul." That's why the apostle responded saying, "truly you are the Son of God," understanding in his very first encounter that Christ was indeed divine. May we desire Jesus Christ above all and in so seeking him find him.
