 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Nathanael
It is generally held that Nathanael is to be identified with the Apostle Bartholomew of the Synoptic writers.
The latter make no mention of Nathanael, but in their lists of the Twelve, one, Bartholomew, is always designated by his family Bar-Tolmai (son of Tolmai), and it is assumed that it is he whom the author of the Fourth Gospel designates by his personal name Nathanael.
Nathanael was brought to Jesus by Philip (John 1:45), and thus it seems significant that Bartholomew is always mentioned next to Philip in the lists of the Twelve given by the Synoptists (Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:14).

 LT42 - A NEO-PATRISTIC RETURN TO THE CALLING OF NATHANAEL
In this experience Nathanael began to move away from pride in himself and pride in his race, and to recognize who Jesus is. The title Son of God expresses the divine origin of Jesus, while King of Israel means King of the true Israelites, of those who share in the dynamism of divine grace.
Nathanael's motive is his realization of the highness of the origin of Jesus, and this recognition suggests many Scriptural allusions which we cannot take up here.
Nathanael inherits this promise, not by being a physical descendent of Jacob, but by abandoning his pride of race and adhering to the other-worldly spirit of Jesus.

 Nathanael
Furthermore, the parents of Nathanael, believing that their baby was a “gift of God,” would have been horrified if somebody had told them that God, who “is love” (1 John 4:8, 16), had lovingly given them a sin-infected child!
However, Nathanael, as he walked to meet Jesus, was shocked to hear such words.
If Nathanael was called “Bartholomew,” then his father was “Tolmai,” a complimentary name meaning “abounding in furrows” (Gesenius, 865), referring to the “furrows” or “ridges” in a cultivated wheat field as the farmer prepares “the earth” looking to the time the “grain” will be harvested (Psalm 65:9-10).
