Nathanael

(Hebrew: God has given)

A disciple of Jesus Christ, from Cana in Galilee (John 21), praised by Our Divine Lord as "an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile" (John 1), and enumerated among the Apostles as a witness to the miraculous draught of fishes, after the Resurrection (John 21). It is generally held that Nathanael is to be identified with Saint Bartholomew the Apostle, since one is not distinguished from the other. The Evangelists who mention Bartholomew tell nothing of Nathanael, and Saint John who speaks of Nathanael is silent concerning Bartholomew.
