Compare these two verses. John 1:49 (nkjv) 49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” and Matthew 16:16-17 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. So how did Nathanael know? Was it from John the Baptist? How does Nathanael seem to know early on but it takes Peter 16 chapters to figure it out? Thoughts?
