Peter identified Christ in Matthew 16:16 by divine revelation. Can we assume the same occurred to Nathanael in John 1:49?
In both the Gospels of Matthew and John, we read of Jesus being identified as the "Son of God":
John 1:48-49: "Nathanael said to Him, 'How do You know me?' Jesus answered and said to him, 'Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.' 49Nathanael answered Him, 'Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel'” (emphasis added).
Then, we have the verse with which most are familiar:
Matthew 16:16-17: "Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' 17And Jesus said to him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.'"
Since we know Peter received a divine revelation from the Father (Matt. 16:16), might we conclude the same of Nathanael in John 1:49?
