John and Andrew, the sons of neighboring fishermen on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, received permission from their fathers to go down to help John the Baptist where he was daily taking his stand midway across the Jordan.
John the Baptist, on seeing Jesus walk by, cried out, "There is the Lamb of God." With that, John and Andrew left the Baptist, to follow after Jesus at a distance.
(This story come from the Gospel according to John where every thing he wrote had several meanings.)
Jesus asked, "What are you looking for?" (He was questioning the two of them both as to that day and to their future. He was questioning us eventual readers of John's Gospel.)
:Where are you staying?"...And they stayed with him that day.(Jesus in John's Gospel, by repeating the matter of staying within him Jesus, is interested in a permanent relationsip with him.)
