"Where dwellest thou?"

It is recorded in the Bible that on one occasion at the beginning of Jesus' ministry he saw two men following him. He turned about and asked them what they were seeking. Thereupon they asked him, "Where dwellest thou?" He then invited them to come and see. The record goes on to say that they abode with him that day. One of the two was so greatly impressed that he found his brother, brought him to Jesus, and they both became his disciples. Nowhere in the narrative is there recorded anything about Jesus' abode, but as a result of that following, two most ardent seekers of good were recruited to the Master's cause.

It must have been something far beyond a mere visit to Jesus' habitation which led the disciples to seek the Christ. They must have discerned at once something of that divine nature which he so abundantly expressed, and which would reveal to them the divine way of salvation. In another instance, even a first encounter led another one to exclaim, "Thou art the Son of God"—a truly remarkable saying.
